Fuel Tank Cage: Remove or Keep?
I am debating whether or not to remove the safety cage around the fuel tank.
Bus is a 2004 International, Conventional.
Looks like that's several hundred pounds of steel that can be removed to lighten the bus, and make room for other weight like water, an/or a spare fuel tank.
I know the cage is there for a collision, but I see the big rigs have dual fuel tanks, right under the doors, and they are totally exposed.
So has anyone removed their cage?
Relocated the tank further inboard?
I've thought of installing a pair, or two of those big rig tanks.
