    Rotapax Install

    I just installed new rotapax gas and water carriers this weekend. Easy install, and gives a little extra piece of mind when wheeling in the middle of nowhere...IMG_1209.jpg

    Does your door open all the way? (To the end of the limiting strap)

    It does bump into the containers, but only when door is at end of the limiting strap and it’s barely touching. This is with two 2-gallon packs. Not sure if the 3-gallon would be different

    Hopefully it doesn’t cause damage say if a gust of wind catches your door.

    Not sure I’ve ever seen anyone run them there instead of the tailgate or carrier. Any reason you chose that spot?

    Several reasons. For one, I can carry 8 gallons without having to reinforce my tailgate (I installed these on both the driver and passenger sides). For another, I actually kind of like the look.

    And if I ever change my mind they would be easy to uninstall. Potential reasons to uninstall? Horrible highway gas mileage, or degradation of crawling performance. I haven’t yet tested those two but will later this month...

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.
