These brackets for the jerry cans are not standard are they? (the red parts).
Can anyone show me how exactly the or fab holds the jerry cans? Only by 'hanging' them on the handle on top of the jerry can?? No support on the bottom end?
There is a 'lip' welded in two locations on the bottom 'rung' of the OR-Fab tire/can carrier that the bottom edge (lip) of the 'standard old style' of (military/gerry) fuel can sets in as well as the threaded stud/wingnut that prevents movement of the can.
I am curious, madmikey, if the fuel can mounting brackets (in red) were fixed/welded inplace or in place with the strap/fuel can weight?

3 years with my Bestop tub mounted carrying a 35" tire. No complaints after install, but the hardware included leaves something to be desired. I followed Unlimited04LJ's recommendation, and replaced all the nuts and bolts w/unpainted grade 8 before I installed it.
It's about as close to the tub as you can get for an oversize carrier.
No problems with my sheet metal. The plan is to get some aluminum corner armor for my Jeep.
That would really beef up a tub mounted carrier.
Just have not got there yet...or I should say, the money has not got here yet.
