So I designed it so that it is held down securely, but all I have to do to remove it is remove 1 padlock. Its a pretty complicated design, but when I get around to doing it, I'll post pics... but first I have to get around to doing the Herculiner, and then get around to doing the mounts haha
How did you end up mounting them so they can be easily removed?

how has everyone put them into their rear cargo area to be easily removed?
i just bought some and was looking at doing some sort of latch system to attach them to tub then when i need to remove them just unhook and pull them out

was trying to get away from using bungee straps

$20 for a 50 cal ammo can is ridiculous. I bought 200 of them for $300.

What's in my JKU...

They bolt to the tub rail using the hardtop bolts so there's no drilling, and the same bracket can mount on either side of the Jeep. The vertical part of the bracket is also a Molle grid. It's compatible with the soft top as well, the can is positioned far enough inboard so it won't interfere with the soft top bows when they're folded down. Here are a few photos...

50 cal:



2 x 30 cal and some Molle pouches:



Fat 50:



Or a spare battery, perhaps to run a fridge?



A view of both sides:

I picked up a PA-70 (60mm) ammo can yesterday. Since it's pretty close to the size of a jerry can it fits nicely in the side mount jerry can holders on my JK and LJ.

In case anyone's interested in seeing the various ".50 cal size" cans, all of these share the same lid. The taller ones would be great on a tailgate or in the side mounts. Left to right:

M2A1 .50 cal
PA-19 .50 cal
PA-60 60 mm AN/RVS-14
PA-70 60mm
PA-124 60mm

and a Scepter 20l water container for comparison.



Not shown is the PA-108 "Fat 50" because it doesn't share the same lid as these.

Just FYI.

Today I experimented with an 81mm can on a carrier mounted to the tailgate hinges.

Ammo Can Externally Mounted

How did you do this? Make it or buy it? I love that setup!

Thanks. I made the bracket that holds the ammo can, and the tailgate hinges the bracket is bolted to are the MORryde HD hinges which are designed to have accessories like this bolt to them. The bracket isn't completely finished - there's no strap holding the ammo can in place yet. This bracket is just a prototype, I've got a few minor adjustments to make to it before I consider it final. I've designed it so that it can hold ammo cans or jerry cans:
