Not just depleting oxygen but in a crash they can flatten your head just bouncing around and If the valve gets knocked off they become a nice missile too. Ive seen tanks go through poured block walls. Most places around here won't let you take a cylinder inside your car/truck. Some don't like for you to lay them down in your bed either but if its a spare tank and not going to be used immediately they don't care. I keep big 75/25 tanks and oxygen/acetylene and smaller straight Argon tanks at the shop.One of the reasons I wanted a small pickup truck was so I could haul a cylinder of Argon/CO2 shielding gas for my MIG welder. Today the current cylinder was finally depleted and I drove to Airgas to exchange it (and a few dollars) for a new filled cylinder. Chances of a leak are almost non-existent, but Argon displaces oxygen and could take someone’s life if transported in a closed vehicle. I used the Santa Cruz to bring the new cylinder of gas home (but, did not take a photo).
Just a bored thought, I've seen a few of your pictures posted. The ladder, these bamboo stalks etc. I think all would work a lot better with the tailgate at 45 degrees, vs all the way up or down. I personally think its the best way to carry anything longer in the santa cruz with such a short bed. Just a thoughtI was BAMBOO-zled!
The short bamboo stalks are 8ft.. i think the live bamboo was 12 ft or so..
True dat. You’re probably right. Most the time I forget or don’t want to fiddle with adjusting the cables. Haven’t lost a load yet tho. 😄 I think I did the 45 for atleast one load..Just a bored thought, I've seen a few of your pictures posted.

330 gallon fuel cube for bringing heating oil home. I didn't dare fill it all the way up due to weight, I only put 100 gallons in it at a time, which filled it up about even with the side of the bed. The cube is a near-perfect fit for the bed in length and width.
