    Yea it does look great and like itís part of the carrier.

    Would this work with 2, 2 gallon RotoPAX tanks sitting vertical rather than the horizontal 4gal? I think it would look a little better and be easier to manage. Looks like I would just rotate the RotoPAX mounts 90 degrees on the universal plate.

    Don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Great idea

    I like the idea of this design. I have the DV8 carrier and have been wanting a cheaper way to mount the rotopax cans than what Iíve seen available. I like my LP being in the center but Iím sure I could mount the bracket for the cans above the plate and still look good. Thanks for the idea on where to start. Keep Jeepin

    Nice write up. I like the look of the bumperless jeep but aren't you worried or have you ever taken a shot to the rear panels without bumper protection?

    Thatís a great idea. Nice write-up. You can really do a lot with those KC roll bar mounts.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
