I think Wedge is right. You'll never find a large tank with a cap placed forward at the high point of the tank. Here's my Frisco Tank (and it's a true Frisco Tank) but, it's just 2.2 gallons. When I was looking for mine, I searched high and low. Trust me, you won't find a large tank that is Frisco'd.



Here's a pic of my tank.

That is a nice tank! I'd be down with that if it were larger.

There's a few stock tanks been widened to give more capacity. Bob Smith (I think) was doing them in the Bedfordshire (UK) area.
