Spare tire jerry can mount?

I'd like to get a jerry can mount for a 5 gallon jerry can that mounts to the spare tire on my 06 TJ. I'm headed out to Death Valley soon and would like to have 5 gallons extra. Not the 2 gallon rotopax. I can't seem to find anything aftermarket. I could fabricate something if needed. I'd prefer to just buy something ready made. Anybody know of anything?

That's a lot of weight. If your not talking about
aftermarket tire carrier. It would be really stupid to stick a 5 gallon tank on your spare tire.

5 gallons of gas is about 30 pounds plus the weight of the can. It's also really close to the tire. I have a bike rack that goes on the spare tire and haul two mountain bikes on it regularly with zero issues. It's at least 50 pounds. Way more weight than a jerry can full of gas would be and the bikes hang off the back of the tire. Weight won't be a problem.
