20Litre gas can carrier ?

I have a 20 L gas can and want to carry it Outside the vehicle (TinTop) as I have serious reservations about carrying it inside the truck.
Swing away looks too difficult for my setup.
Thinking about a trail rack hanging over the spare tyre.
Any one have this setup or a better solution.?
Thanks
Alfie

Don't they make one that mounts to the rim {spair tire rim [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]}
that just holds the gas can ? That would be the easiest to do.

Re: 20Litre gas can carrier ?

Well let me take that back for a minute and ask.
Is that like the Steel 5 Gal can we have in the states?
I know one of the companies makes a adjustable braket that hooks on the spair and clamps the gas can on. I know there are people out there running sami's with that type of bracket holding there gas cans on. If no one replies, that has one. I will do some looking and find out who sells them. I should be able to find a web page that shows/sells them.

Re: 20Litre gas can carrier ?

I built a swing gate for mine and it would have been easy if I hadn't complicated things and plumbed it into the system. I'll try posting a pic, and get some other photo's scanned this weekend if your interested. I personally don,t like the spare tire mount for 2 reasons. It puts an extra load on the bracket that could bend the tail gate if it isnt braced, and it sticks out so far in the event ot someone stuffing there SUV into the back.

Re: 20Litre gas can carrier ?

Well it took a little looking, but I found it.
Try going to http://www.con-ferr.com/
You are looking for Part No. G8007 (Blitz Can Carrier)
and Part No. G8137 (Spair Adapter) (in 5 X 5 1/2).
Basicly the adapter mounts to the out side of your rim and the Can carrier mounts to it. Hope that helps you.

Hey alfie-
did you ever get your lift/spring situation straightened out. I would still reccomend going with some cj front spring for the rear if you can find them they flex nice even spua configuration.
