Removed Spare... room for mods!

Hey all,

Removed the spare tire bracket and now I've got some spare bolt holes!

I'm thinking I want a gas (jerry can) and a water container holder.

Anyone have something like this? I've seen swingouts with such holders, but I don't necessarily want a spare, just a cage that uses those bolts.

any ideas?

LoneJeeper.

Heres some pictures of my SWING OUT tire carier/jerry can holder/hi-lift mount. The bumper is by trailready. The jeep is in the shop right now, so these are the only pictures ive got.





The part that is relevant to what your doin is the jerry can holder itself. It is a spring loaded and uses a wing nut. It clamps the can with absolutely no damage to can, and easy removal. It holds onto the side of the can, so you could mount it flat against your jeep instead of sideways like mine. It is about the height of the can, and you will have to fabricate a mount for it. (Mines built into the bumper.) I can not remember what company makes it. If you are interested, ill have my jeep back in about a week, and i can get you some better pictures of it, along with the name of the manufacurer.

Nice looking Jeep. Really diggin the bumpers.

I'm looking for something that bolts to the holes that the spare tire mount used to use... right on the tailgate. I'm mildly concerned about the weight...

5 gal gerry can... gas is 6lbs a gal.... 30 lbs.
5 gal water can.. water is 8lbs a gal 40lbs...
+ weight of the metal and containers...

> 70lbs seems like alot of strain for the tailgate...

what else could i put there?

You could mount the Jerry Can and a Hi-lift there. Dont think it would break anything

This is by no means a scientific answer, but the stock tj rear doors break down over time with as small as a 32" tire. Mine has had a 31 inch hanging off of it for 3 years and I can tell a huge diffrence between closing it with the tire on as opposed to without, and there is no sloshing in a tire. I would stick to a bumper mounted carrier. Build your own or check into a company that does custom work like Jp-Fab or AtoZ both do custom work,,, Or better yet build it yourself... It is 10 times cooler then even if it does not look good.

I love this crap!!

Tis is a partial pic. My bracket mounts to the spare tire holes. It took about an hour to fab a bracket. I'll see if I can get a pic of the bracket. The high lift is mounted to the top of the cans.

awesome. have you noticed any strain on the tailgate?

I'm trying to figure out a less theif-friendly solution... currently cadding a roller-coaster over-the-top restraint style locking mechanism.

i'll keep ya posted.
