Gerry Can Mount Ideas?

I got an 06 Wrangler with the factory bumber and tire carrier. I currently have a 245/75r16 spare tire. I am looking for any ideas for a good way to mount 1 Gerry Can to the rear and frankly I don't have too many ideas Any1 out there have any good ideas or a way themselves have mounted a gerry can? Any info would be appreciated.

I have been wanting to do this as well for a while, $190 for that mount posted above is crazy I would rather rig something up myself than pay for that.

now that's a cool looking setup but it looks like an aftermarker bumper as well I am wanting to keep the factory rear bumper.

The best and safest solution is to install a Tomken or a Rock hard rear bumper with tire carrier with mount for Gerry cans. But, that is expensive. I have seen several jeeps of your model having Gerry Can Mounting Bracket from Quadratec for $30 each. They have installed the bracket in front of the front doors. Quadratec Part No: 12202.01

I have the similar problem with my 2009 Jeep where there isn't enough area in front of the door to install this bracket.

Well, I know you said you wanted to keep the stock bumper but a good idea i think is go look up TuffDesigns, they make a really nice swing out tire carrier/rearbumper with hi lift jack mount can holders and stuff for like ~450 dollars I think, pretty good deal IMO and you can add a trail rack for another 149$
that's just my plan when I get a new rear bumper

Yeah I was kind debating on a new rear bumper now cause I wanted to relocate my hi lift also. I could set it up inside the jeep but im not too comfortable with that.

OR-Fab has a superb combination spare tire carrier/jerry-can holder that I had on my '97 TJ. It tucks space for two jerry cans between the spare tire and tail gate. It's also built strong enough that after 8 years of mine carrying a 35" spare tire and two usually full jerry cans, it never sagged. Supported by three points bolted to the roll cage mounts instead of the two usual support points from bumper-mounted carriers, it holds up better.

This link shows it for the JK but it is available for the TJ. They no longer show the photos of it mounted on a TJ but it looks identical. Jeep | SWING AWAY TIRE/CAN CARRIER JK (UNLIMITED) 2/4 DOOR | 85207

Here's the link that shows the TJ mount itself... Jeep | SWING AWAY TIRE/CAN CARRIER TJ | 85201

I liked it so well that I mounted another onto my new-to-me '04 Rubicon that replaced my stolen '97 TJ.

The below pic shows it on my '97 without the spare tire or jerry cans. For that particular trail, Sledgehammer in Johnson Valley, we remove our spares because they get hung up too easily on the trail which is rated 5+ on a scale of 1-5. Yes, that parka a friend (Blaine Johnson) is wearing means it gets that frigging cold out there in the winter.

Here is another option for you. I am trying to figure out the same problem myself.

I would not even consider that method of mounting a jerry can. Not only is it unprotected against any sort of impact that would spray gasoline everywhere , that method of mounting creates enormous leverage against the tire mount underneath. To me, that is just another example of Smittybilt's Chinese engineering at work.

Just trying to give the OP some options. Jerry if you go by the theory that gas can get sprayed everywhere in an impact, then where is a good place to mount it where an impact will not affect it?

At least it is protected from non-major impacts when it is placed between the spare tire carrier and tub like with the ORF carrier. Mounted on the rear of the spare tire in that totally exposed position like Smittybilt does is just stupid-dangerous in my personal opinion. An exposed jerry can mounted like Smittybilt does would crumple and spew gasoline everywhere after even a minor rear-end collision.

What do you think about mounting it inside like previously stated to the inner wheel well? Are those cans sealed up pretty good against fumes and leaking? As long as it's in good condition obviously.

The newer Blitz jerry cans have a plastic cap on top to meet current emissions laws and I don't know if they are still as leak free as the older steel screw-in cap and o-ring was that the older Blitz jerry cans like I had used. I doubt if they are, at least long-term.

I dunno if I would mount any of them inside the passenger compartment, that sounds dangerous. Not to mention even a minor leak or venting of fumes would be awful to have to drive with, dangerous too, if the top is up and the windows are closed.

The link from jdub2k5 that shows the gas can and hi-lift jack mount from Tomken is an addition to their bumper that may not fit others. I have the whole Tomken set up and am very pleased with it. Strong, no rattles, reasonable price and made in the USA.

In regards to Jerry's comment on the behind-the-spare mounting arrangement,he is exactly right.On the last day of June,I was driving my TJ to work,as usual.I got off the freeway at my usual exit.While stopped and waiting to turn right,a driver behind me,who was driving,of all things-A DUMPTRUCK!-rear ended me!Had I have been packing a Jerry can filled with gasoline,I most likely wouldn't be talking now!Fortunately,my Jeep only scored light damage to the tailgate,and unfortunately my neck.I am feeling better,and am still driving it-haven't had time to get her in the body shop yet,but hopefully soon I will.Just some food for thought..............

This is a shot of mine without the cans. The spare holder moves in and out to allow for the width of the cans as well as the tire. Since the cans are rarely used when I wheel I am looking at fabbing 2 boxes to fit the rack to store my trail bag and tools.


Shot with the cans:

I bought the smitty built hanging off the rear. I'm not satisfied with the way it sags and hadn't put much thought into the gas can being the first thing hit in a rear ender. I guess that's 'cause I usually do the hitting. Also it creates a sag on the rear door which in time hurt the hinges.
I saw one of the RockHards in a parking lot last week, will probably switch to that, any one want to buy an almost new smitty?

The stock spare tire carrier is adequate for a stock size spare tire but is entirely inadequate for the weight of both the spare tire and even one full 5 gallon jerry can.

Check out the post at http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/rear...ml#post2075840 where you'll find a spare tire carrier that is strong enough to also support the weight of two full jerry cans.

One more pic shows my previous (stolen) Jeep where it was carrying one 5 gallon water can on the driver's side, a 5 gallon jerry can for gas was on the passenger side.
