external cage fuel can rack

Can someone point me to the thread or pics of the forum member that had a fabricator make his NAS 110 a tripple can carrier on the right side of his cage in the rear window?

My search ninja skills have failed me

Not sure if this helps but I just ran across this pic today on Instagram. No idea who it belongs to though.



Edit: ah, noticed you wanted the external cage mounting, sorry.

Put them on the drivers side, how do expect to verify lane clearance when passing?

Bling spot on an M-1? I don't think they give a crap.

I don't think an M1 even considers crushing things in a lane change, if they ever change lanes at all.

M1 traffic on my local streets is very heavy

How about getting the long ranger tank that fits between the fill and tank. Himalaya also makes oversized tanks

Well, you have all been extremely helpful and for that, I award you all turnips fresh from the garden.

Here's the thread. it's a tripple can mount that leverages the cage and keeps the cans as low profile as possible regarding protruding from the cage. I'm going to get something like this fabed up.

couple points to address raised concerns. I never look out that window. I have awesome visibility as is with the right side mirror being concave. Also, the left window is a gull wing hatch. somehow, 110 vans don't seem to crash anywhere in the world, so I think I'll be fine.

Also, I don't intend to run around with empty cans every day. that's camping kit that stays in the garage until needed. and this isn't a range problem. I have a water tank in my rear arch, but you always need at least one fuel and water can in my opinion, as you don't always have the ability to move the vehicle to the fuel or water supply. sometimes you need a medium to transport it.

I think you would be much better off mounting them on the back next to the spare tire or else mounting them on the roof. That seems like it would be one of the worst possible places to mount them.

why do you say that? I say the higher they are mounted, the worse off I am.

I can appreciate the need to keep weight down, which is why I suggested mounting on the rear. I meant a tire carrier with a mount for two jerry cans, which seems to be what you are after. I think mounting on the side is a bad choice because it will get hung up on trees. You live on the east coast, so this is an unfortunately reality. If you lived out west I could see this being feasible option. I'd rather have two mounted high on my roof than hanging off the side.

Both ways have risks. Mine will include protection on the front for exactly that, and this approach is pretty low profile when you see that the cans only project a few inches past the cage itself, vs some of the other side mounted option shown earlier in the thread.

for me, on the back is not an option.

I've always wanted someone to make a basket that goes over the spare tire. The footprint of four jerry cans is similar to that of a Pelican 1650. Spare tire racks are common on Jeeps, I'm surprised no one makes one for Land Rovers.

Here's a photo of mine. Pretty simple design. Two HD cage clamps, a section a plate steel I bent into a shallow C profile and with 3 Rotopax mounts.

I can hold 2x 2gal cans on each mount, so 12 gallons total. I designed it so that the lower cage bar also supports the cans.

I am also ditching this mount and moving the cans to the tire carrier so I can install gull wing windows.

I considered driver rear visibility and tree damage, hence the drivers side mounting. I don't think I'd wheel it fully loaded with 6 cans, I'd keep it shallow at 3 cans across.

Now you got me thinking! I like the side Rotopax idea.
