RotoPax 8 Gallon Gas Pack + OCF Reinforcement Kit?

Hey All,

So I was wondering if this combo would work. I know the debate as the weight limit of the rear tire carrier/tail gate.

I need extra gas on the trail and I was thinking of doing the following....

Getting two of these for 8 gallons total and buying the gas pack connector hardware so they are connected essentially as "one" gas pack

RotopaX Gas Packs- 1,2,3 and 4 Gallon Gasoline

Then install this...
Off Camber Fabrications 130903 - Off Camber Fabrications Spare Tire Reinforcement Kit for 07-14 JeepĀ® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Then mount the connected gas packs with heavy duty straps to the rear spare tire.

I think fuel weighs around 6 lbs a gallon so the total weight added to the tail gate would be 48 lbs. Which some say is beyond the limit and some say it is not.

Any ideas? Thoughts? Flame Wars?

Thanks!

Joe
