84 CJ7 Jerry can placement

Hello Jeep Brothers...

My new mission is adding some kind of bracket to hold a jerry can for extra gas... having a 15 gallon tank and burning just about 1 gal per 10 miles I can't get to far on a tank... I was wondering if any of you have CJ7 pics , ideas , or links that I can take a look at... I have a buddy that can weld me up something if needed.. here are some pics of the tail end of my rig... the tire is a 33".. thank you for all the tips , without you all my jeep would be on blocks!!

I welded a 2" receiver on a plate and mounted it in the center of my spare tire to relocate my license plate. I am going to build me a bracket that will pin to the receiver that will carry a jerry can for extended offroad trips

I've also seen them straddle the spare tire...


Or mount low on the front fenders...



Or make some room and stick it behind the back seat

Make sure that fuel can is DOT/Ca. CARB approved.
If it ain't, you can be cited for it....

jeep body is weak at best.

I would add a fuel tank bracket to a heavy duty bumper or secure it inside the bed.
do not want to rip out your body or loose the fuel tank.

safety and fuel tank security go hand and hand,

leaking coolant system, leaking oil system are both bad, but busted or non secured fuel tanks could be very bad.

Drop a 20 gallon tank under the back. Get rid of the 15

If you don't mind dropping some cash, the rotopax system could give you what you want. (www.rotopax.com)
