From what I know about O2 tanks they're color coded and the regulators have an adapter that only fits the corresponding gas tank. Refill places should only fill them with the appropriate gas. In short, no.

And on topic, I found an Optima Red Top being used a door stop at the barracks on post. Was moving one of my soldiers to a different building, saw it sitting there, asked him whose it was and he said it had been there for weeks and people just kept throwing it in the bushes to get it out of the way. Dropped it off at Autozone on my way home from work and it had zero charge. Let it sit on the trickle charger all night and picked it up the next day and it's still going strong.

Optima Red Top - Free

And not really a steal but I got my winch through a deal posted here 12000lbs mile marker w/ 2000lbs ATV winch for $500 shipped NIB. Gave the ATV winch to a friend of mine that helped me do all the work on my 07 and basically got me into wheeling. A little extra work to remote mount and water seal the control box and it's going strong.

first, don't mess with Helium tank. Helium and CO2 are complete different gases. Helium is transferred and stored in the tank and released as gas. CO2 is transferred and stored in the tank as liquid, and released as gas from the tank. Helium tank sizes are measured by volume in Cubic Foot: 55cf, 80cf, etc. CO2 tank sizes are measured by weight: 9oz, 20oz, 5lbs, 10lbs, 20lbs, etc.
second, nobody will fill CO2 in Helium tank for you.
they have different tank valves.
Helium Tank valve: female thread. Regulator inlet valve: male thread.
CO2 Tank valve: male thread. Regulator inlet valve: female thread.

so, NO, it won't work. not mentioning they need to be hydrostatic tested.

as for the gun, it lasts a loooong time.

Im not sure what type they are but they are 15x8's with 4'' backspacing. I'm not a fan of chrome but for the price I couldn't let them go, I was amazed they came out that good and fit the tacoma!

So - long story short - I got a set of Deaver 9's for $75.
The same thing happened to me! I found a guy on Craigslist that wanted to trade stock springs + 60 bucks for his deaver 8 pack. So I stole my buddies old stock leafs and traded him. Then drove up to deaver and had them rebuild and add a leaf for 150. Overall a great deal.

Nice score on the aux tank . . . NWMP is pretty easy to deal with for the install directions - make sure you know where each hose is supposed to go or you could have some problems with the charcoal canister filling with raw fuel

These 3 in 33x12.5, all for 60. Came with rims too, just steelies though. ones at 85-90% ones at 60-65% and ones at 5% all going to used as spares. because of some side wall damage (the good one) and a gash in the other one between the knobs (the ok looking one). they have some crackings.

Let me set the stage.. A dude I used to work with left a Kayak at one of the houses down from where we work. It's a river front house and the dude that lives there is pretty cool. That was three years ago.
Last summer I had called and left a message with the dude who owned the kayak offering to buy it. (It sat through a summer and into the next) I never heard from him and I never ended up buying any Kayak.
For like four years now, every spring I think about buying one and then get something for my bike or Truck.
Anyhow, the dude with the waterfront house says to me yesterday. "Have you heard from Kayak dude.." I'm like.. "nope." He says, "Come get it or I'm chucking it." So, now I have one.

Oh, It was free.. Probably my best score under a $100!
