    I seriously doubt that it doesn't come with the holes. Just buy it and it if doesn't have them, return it.

    Sorry, I must have totally missed something. Why are square holes necessary? (I'm being serious)

    Square holes would allow the use of carriage bolts.

    I understand that, but why are they necessary?

    Unnecessary. Possibly convenient for some types of installation.

    And you could always tack weld a regular bolt if you wanted to.

    To be clear on my thoughts, I have never used the Evo bracket or any rotopax mounting system. I am not sure what hardware comes with any of them. The Evo bracket has square holes and some pictures of the universal mount has square holes leading me to believe a carriage bolt would be used to be nice and flush and out of the way of the gas can itself. Are they necessary... Probably not... But idk how tall of a bolt head will hit the gas can. Can I drill a hole in the universal mount to line up with the Evo mount.... Yes.

    All I am saying is when I googled links to the universal mount and where to buy one, I found 3 different options with square holes, round holes, and no holes, with no way to determine which one would show up at my door. Is that a big deal... No. Can I make any of the 3 work.... Probably.

    I was just wondering if the people who have bought them already had to choose a hole option or if they all just showed up with square holes so I know what I have to do to get it installed.

About us
“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.
