Personally I think this is a bad idea...those things get knocked off on moderate trails.

If you want storage in your bumper, then build a bumper.

Its a neat idea and I've seen armored bumpers use it but mrcarcrazy is right, those are very fragile things and if you offroad they have a high chance of getting knocked off

I am not sure what exactly you mean here regarding storage. Do you mean you want to make a storage box in the bumper or in the actual jug itself. What would you possibly be able or need to store in that small area?

Well since you have ruined those, if you need a couple more, I have em. Just respond quickly so that I can retrieve them. The garbage man gets here pretty early on Wednesday mornings.

My mom always told me if I didn't have anything nice to say then I should shut it. But really man. That is worse than I'd imagined.
