Rear Bumper/ Gas Can Holder

I want to integrate or replace my rear bumper with sometype of system that can hold 2 gas cans. I dont want a huge bulky heavy rear bumper. Ideally I would like to keep the bumper I have and just add to the rear tire carrier or weld something to it. Any ideas? Pics or web sites with products would be greatly appreciated.

The OE spare tire carrier is barely adequate for the spare tire, it's not even close to being able to support the weight of two full 5-gallon jerry cans and steel support pieces which would add at least 70-75 lbs. of additional weight.

Some aftermarket spare tire carriers are strong enough to carry two full jerry cans, take a look at what OR-Fab | Off-Road Fabricators | HOME has. I had their jerry-can version spare tire carrier on my previous TJ and it was superb at carrying both a large spare and two full jerry cans.

That is exactly what I had on my previous TJ and I believe it's the best/strongest aftermarket spare tire carrier available for the TJ. That it was more than strong enough to also carry two usually always full jerry can over so many years without it sagging or rattling was icing on the cake.

That Jeep was stolen and one of the first mods I did to my replacement TJ was to mount another ORF spare tire carrier. I didn't go with the jerry can version this time for various reasons, mostly that I simply didn't need the extra gas for the type of wheeling I have settled into.

That is its list price, check with Gerald at Savvy Offroad at gman@savvyoffroad.com to see if he is still a discounting dealer for ORF.
