Homebrew Rear Gas Can Holder

Anyone have any ideas/tips/photos of homemade gas can holders. I have the Warn rear bumper w/ tire carrier and was trying to come with a solution to carrying more fuel.

Re: Homebrew Rear Gas Can Holder

Think thin? Saw these at the local offroad show last weekend. 4 gals of slim mounted fuel containment. cool mounting lug system too, which could easily be adapted to factory or aftermarket roof rack or hatch, as well as spare tire mount.

Re: Homebrew Rear Gas Can Holder

Those thin gas cans are sweet!

What would be even cooler would be to mount two of them flat on a roof rack. Add a cap with a valve on it and a hose coupling. Then when you need to fill up, just hook up the hose and open the valve!

Add something like this to the cap:

Forget about building a can holder for the rear bumper. Put these two together on my roof rack and that is exactly what I needed. Thanks for the input XJEEPER and Markos!

Re: Homebrew Rear Gas Can Holder

Have you ever seen the spray when you back into something with a can?

Might want to think about a different location.

I'd make a 3/8" solid steel box to hold the can, with some Major locks... 5 Gal of gas is some Valuable crap !

I recommend to buy it from ebay or Amazon that would be better then your home made. And you can save your time.
