Tire Carrier with Gerry Can holders behind wheel

I'm looking for a bumper/tire carrier system that will hold 2 Gerry cans behind the tire. Would prefer not to have to do any drilling if possible! Any suggestions would be great.

jp mag did a rear bumper/tire carrier with a lot of tire carriers in one of the recent mags, might be up on their website by now.

body armor has one that carries them in front of the tire, garvin and rockhard4x4 has ones that carry on the sides... havent seen one with behind the tire... or do you mean behind if your looking at the rear end?

Semper Fi Brian,

I have a problem putting a 5 gallon container anywhere on the jeep that could be involved in direct impact in a collision. Now, two 5 gallon containers sounds twice as dangerous. I have a roof rack and maybe up there with extra gasoline would work. Diesel on the other hand in a can mounted down low I might be able to live with.

I have seen a jeep locally with a can mounted near the driver side door somehow. There is no bulls-eye painted on it but that is all I see when I look at it...every time I see it.

After an impact, gas coating everything and then set ablaze, somehow cures my desire to have extra gas on the down low.

OR-FAB also makes one where the cans are behind the spare tire.

I saw the body armor one...just looked cheap....not heavy duty. I will look into OR-Fab. I plan on keeping the cans filled when on the trails...not on the hwy. You can also sub. the gas cans for H2O cans. Thanks for the help, my buddy has a nice one on his early 90's Jeep and it looks really nice and rugged.
