Best Jerry Can Holders?

What are the best Jerry Can Holders out there?

I want to be able to place 5 or 6 side by side very close together on their back side, in some kind of cradle/rack system.

Any tips?

WOW! isn't that like 250-300lbs? Are you planning on driving non stop coast to coast? Cannonball Run?

I run the Nevada Trophy and have to carry a lot of gas to make it without needing to run off course for a town to fuel up.

Yes I have a rack. It is currently an empty SD basket. I'm going to build it out to handle a lotta cool gizmos including a lot of gas.

Those are nice ones, clean, slim. But I want to mount them on the back of the can (so the spout is fillable when stowed)...

Adam,

Why do what your dad did with his 110? Buy a D90 SD external cage and mount them over the rear windows as an idea.

Personally though, I like the idea of the 2nd internal gas tank.

Yes so do I, but the cans were $10 each and I don't need extra except once or twice a year...plus extra fuel tank is only 2-3 cans worth. Lotta dough too I think.

Of course, if I could referance pictures from the event that would be good too but a certain family, not mentioning any names (walker), never sent any.

Ouch, Chris!

Here's links to all our photos: The D-90 Source Community > Non-Technical Discussions > Misc. Chit-Chat > Nevada Trophy 2 Results

It was a real Defender victory! Adam's and my truck, as a team, placed First overall by a hugh margin.

I will also send you a pic of us all posed in front of the trucks.

PS: Next NVTR is March 29 -- come join us!

Doug

There is a British outfit that makes a good twin can holder -- trying to remember who....

British Pacific has singles and that is where I bought mine. But in order for the cans to lie on their backs, I don't think these would work -- the locking strap opens over the can's top, and would have to lay out 14 inches or so flat to get the cans in and out....

That's the best shot I have. The rack is basically three British Pacific holders bolted end to end, then bolted to a galvanized angle iron that runs the length underneath, which in turn slips into the roll cage lower corners and is secured by two of the roll cage's bolts.

A top bar of galvanized angle iron, secured with u-bolts to the back side of the vertical roll cage bars, holds the rack off the windows. The rack is not bolted to this bar, so the rack can be tilted forward for can removal and replacement.

Rack and cans are then secured using 'no hook' rachet tie down straps. I removed the top sheet metal straps from the holders so that I can fill and empty the cans without unloading them.

Yes but think about how far are you going when you wheel? The whole weekend at Paragon, we only creeping most of the days and covered 9 miles at the most all weekend not including the trips back and forth to the campground. I went all that weekend without filling up.

I was more curious about how far off the beaten path they were going, if it is allot of high range dirving over a long distance or if they are on the trail for a couple days?. I know when I go out I never cover more then 25 miles or so.

Why not get a fuel cell to throw in the back for the extended trips?
