FYI, there's a dude selling the 20L NATOs for cheaper than I've seen anywhere else ($49), and Free shipping if 4 or more are bought.

That's the oddest site I've seen. Serving dishes, art, optics, home decor and jerry cans...

always thought Horseys truck looked very jersey-esque (zing!) with the accessory gas cans for those trips when you can't find a gas station in NYC. Full disclosure I currently have an ARB winch bumper sans winch on my truck

ARB and no winch. For shame!!! Actually the winch tray might be a good place to carry a jerry can.

I've bought a number of items from deutscheoptik optic over the years, including a number of 20L cans. Great group, great service. But, don't buy the ss spout.

I would think you could use a similar base and have a frame come up all 4 sides with the latches mounting to the frame around the cans

more pics of this sankey please Jay

LOL you are still on the 95 corridor in CT which last time I checked is just as much of an armpit as anywhere in NJ. Nice fail. Besides, I filled up with a jerry can at Vince Lombardi because I didn't feel like waiting in line at the pumps.

Swing away tire carrier

Well I guess I should check these post more often. I have built one Safarigard/ECR style swing away carrier. We put a few creative bends in it so it did not look like a complete copy of the original. It was on and it came of to have the welding finished and it has been sitting in the corner of the shop for a couple months. Custom made one offs are fairly easy to do on a time and materials basis. But to make this a production item with cnc bent tube, modular jerry can holders, a jig to weld them up repeatably and the cost of powder coating they would cost north of $800 each, more like $1000 to be profitable. ECR claims to have only sold 5 or so in all the years they have been at it. I can't justify building 20 of them to keep the cost down and hope they sell.
I will continue to work on the one I have and see if there is a way to do this for those that really want them.
Oliver

Are you talking about a Jerry can bracket here, or the tire carrier still?

I will eventually finish the tire carrier and post pictures. I have other parts that I produce that take most of my spare time so the sg carrier has become a low priority because of the cost.

Oliver, pictures pictures pictures!
My swing-away carrier rattles are to the point where I could justify the SH-style upgrade with a jerry can holder.

I used an adjustable poly bush style as it is quiet and much less expensive than the original style bushing.

I have a few more parts ordered and on the way and will get back to work on it in the next couple weeks.

New bushings (and better quality) are available from McMaster Carr.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

Will that even work?

Horsey,

You are a complete fag for your post. Are you currently wearing a dress and carrying a parasol?
