    Mounting gas can

    Currently I'm running no spare tire but still have my factory tire carrier on and I am in need of having a extra gas on my jeep. Is there anyone out there that has a recommendation for an inexpensive way to mount a gas can, Jerry can, rotopax on my factory tire carrier. I'm trying to do this without spending a lot including buying the gas can

    Rotopax makes mounts that attach to the roll bar.

    I'm not sure I want it inside of the vehicle. If I do something inside of the vehicle ill just get a nicer standard gas can and strap it down.

    What rear bumper are you planning to get? Why not just wait and get gas when you get that bumper/carrier?

    Not sure on rear bumper and that's pretty far down the road. I need one for a certain trip I'm taking in a few weeks

    Gas was recommended not required, I believe, now its a necessity. I could be wrong but no big deal, ill get a standard 5 gallon so I know vapors wont get out.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
