Small tailgate box

I am looking to put a small ammo can on the inside of the tailgate. Looking for ideas on how to attach it since the metal is so thin. Spare is on the bumper so weight is no longer an issue there. TIA

With simple modifications this cargo shelf can support a big ammo can or a few small ones

That is what I'm looking to do but with a smaller ammo can.

There is a pair of reinforcement bars inside the tailgate where the factory spare mount bolts in.
What I'd do is drill some of them all the way through, then enlarge the holes inside enough to install tube spacers. Bolt through from outside and the spacers will transfer all the load to the bars.
Spacers should sit flush with inner surface, option is to weld the inside to the skin.
Advantage is that you aren't placing all the load on a single skin, the spacers will keep inner skin from flexing.
