    Ryan and I just made a livewell out of a toolbox purchased from Wal-Mart. I also bought an ariator, battery clamps, hose clamps and clamps to hold the hose. It took about 30 minutes or so to make. I just drilled 2 holes and attatched 4 clamps. Got everything hooked up and it works fine. The only thing I am undecided on is if I need to install a spraybar or not.

    Save your pennys up and get an AKWALUNG on there. I've seen em work miracles and they are worth every penny.

    I have talked to Steve and seen his product. I would very much like to have one, but it will be a while down the road.

    Sounds like you have a good system there. Now its time to go fill it with cats to see if works. I am experimenting on one also
