I like your water spout on the Sceptre can - neat idea to mount it there. Is that a 35 quart Engel?

Where did you find that water mount? Did you mount the jerry can or is just strapped to the roll bar?

Make me that water mount!

Actually I would like to see more of the water mount. It looks like a great idea. I have Len's boxes back on the wells and I think there is room to put a 20L Scepter

I bought the hand pump from West Marine. I cut a hole with my holesaw in the top of the Scepter water tank (which Brigade Quartermaster has on sale right now). Then used plastic epoxy to hold it in really tight. It is totally portable, and is mounted in a jerry can holder made by Wilderness Accessories for their Wilderness Rack that mounts over a Jeep's rear tire. It works really well. I can also pull it out and put a fuel can in the holder, but don't want the fumes. I will mount the fuel on the roof rack. I hear that the Scepter cans are air tight, so I will try it out when it warms up and I can put the windows down.

I am going to mount two of these on the SD rack in front of the tent I think:

The sceptors are totally sealed, even in the hottest conditions. trust me on that. As for the can holders, I have six sceptors, and held off buying the hannibal mounts due to finding out that they won't hold scepters, just euro cans. I would be interested to hear if the equipt can mounts can hold 2 scepters. please report when installed. thanks

I checked on that and here is what Paul (Equipt Onwer) says:
The Front Runner can holders are designed for the NATO or Wedco style can
with the spout offset to one side. We have put Scepters in the holder and
the fit just fine. The spanner over the lid is a bit offset, but seems to
hold the cans in nice and solid.

Cheers,

Will your 2 can jerry can holders hold mil-spec sceptor cans correctly?
Thanks,

shawn

Also, as a side note, all of the mods that I installed are totally reversible. I used factory holes that were already there. The fridge tray is bolted to the floor using the seat belt mounts, and they made it rock solid. The fridge is bolted through the bottom of the tray to its' rubber foot mounts. The jerry can is bolted through the fenderwell using original holes, and attached at the top to where the seat back mounted. It can all be installed and uninstalled in less than 10 minutes.

Yes it is the 35. I may put the 45 in there for camping, or use both. One for drinks and the other for food. Lots of room when the seats go away!

Got the Eezi Awn up today .......
I figured out how to make crossbars and clamps for less than $20 at Home Depot. VERY sturdy, and looks great too. It clamps to my SD roof rack and is removable in less than 2 mins.

Came across this today and it reminded me of this post. Basically the same idea with a detailed write up.
