The New Evolution in Fuel Can Technology.
 
I was talking about these with one of my friends this weekend. As much as I like the gerry can "look," they can take up alot of room. I kind of like the design and idea behind these. I may look into these in the future, but for now I thought you guys may enjoy them.

where do you put it? under the back seat?

They have things like those for atvs, they are designed to fit in the racks on atvs and you can stack them.

My thought was, if you have a tire carrier, you could make a bracket to mount it flush against the tail gate (since the tire wont be there anymore, and there will be a little space between the carrier and the tailgate). Also with a tire carrier, you could mount it to the swing part behind the spare...all a matter of preference. If you want on there temporarily for a trail ride, you could just strap it to your spare also. But it looks like it would fit under your seat if you didnt mind keep a gas can inside of your jeep.

My friend actually went to a offroad convention near us, and there was a guy there with a cherokee that popped out his side windows and made plastic molds that fit in place of the windows...then the molds had a spot in them where one of these tanks would snap in secure. He had a gas tank on one side and a water tank on the other.

Its a pretty nifty idea.

Somewhere I saw a tire rack that stored these between the swing and the back gate. On you-tube I think...

That is where I think the most convenient place would be.
