Need some red 5 gal jerry cans - Where to Buy?

I live in Ca, so I'll probably have to have them shipped to a friend in Arizona, then shipped to me, but I'm willing to jump through some hoops to get a couple more.

PM me if you know where to buy them, or if anyone in CA is selling a few in the bay area, hit me up. The C.A.R.B. ones bite.

Thanks my fellow jeepers! See you in the mountains when the poo hits the fan

Don't forget, I live in California, and no one will ship them here because of the California Air Resources Board places restrictions on "real" gas cans, so I'm forced into ones that leak.

Ideally I'm looking for someone local that has some extras stashed away ;-)

My local source for them is currently out of stock, so my "last" resort is to order them online, and pay for double shipping. Once to AZ, then again on to Cali.

Peace!

Check out two companies that sell plastic cans, Blitz and Plano Molding. They are two huge companies that sell all different types of plastic gas cans. Also check out Jegs.com. I guess it depends on if you want metal or plastic ones.

Metal please ;-) My bumper will only hold the cans with the "Lip" on the bottom of the can.
