Jeep (Interior) Jerry Can Mount

Looking for some ideas on how to (securely) mount a Jerry can inside my Jeep. Ultimately, I will be adding a rear bumper/tire carrier and it will have the Jerry Can mounts installed, but until then, I'm looking for a quick/cheap/convenient method of mounting a Jerry can inside my Jeep.

Ya, ya, I know - gas vapor is flammable, not a great idea, etc.. I realize all that - so please spare me that particular advice.

I had seen people mount one along the side in the back, using the roll bars but I'm not sure exactly what it involved.

Any ideas?

I think right next to the cigarette light would work..


In all seriousness, do a search here on JKO for "Rotopax". I think you could make that work.

The Rotopax are pretty cool.. I might invest in some of those for water (would be neater and easier than my 5 gallon "glug glug" jug). For the gas, I think I'm just going to bungee in a 5 gallon plastic can or Jerry can.. I will likely use the gas on the trail as soon as I can (as soon as I've burned up 5 gallons from my tank) - it's just to give me a little extra padding.

I had seen a few people do something along the side rear window, using their roll bar as a brace but that was a 4-door with the angled bar in the back - don't think my 2-door would line up the same. I'm looking at the far-back-passenger side corner - would like to create a little "platform" that would maybe use the top/side of the body and the roll bar. So the bottom of the Jerry Can would sit at the level of the top of the rear door/gate. I have a soft top, so the body is exposed there and it seems like I should be able to work something out..

Maybe one of these would work, if you could find somewhere to mount it:

That would be perfect - if I could find a way to (securely) mount it to my roll bar...

i'm pretty sure that you could use flat stock welded to exhaust clamps to mount the pictured mount to.


theres enough space between he 4 side mounting holes on the jerry can mount that (using two pieces of flat stock bolted horizontally) the angle of the rear part of the roll bar could be compensated for. i'd just weld the flat stock to the back-side of the clamps.

one thing.
have you even held a jerry can up to the rollbar to see if the height is even practical enough? i'm not sure that it is.

I haven't done any preliminary "fitting" yet. I was hoping to see some examples of it first - namely because I don't want to drop $60-$99 on a nice Jerry can if I can't properly secure it (it would just get all banged up). I think for now I'll just plan on the quick and dirty alternative - a plastic 5 Gallon Jug and bungee the hell out of it (until I can ultimately get a bumper/tire carrier with Jerry can mounts, etc.). I'm a bit strapped on cash and there's a hefty list of things I could spend the $$ on. Namely, tire deflators and a portable compressor.

Um, I'm pretty sure, legally or healthly....that you don't want to mount a gas can of any kind inside the vehicle..With out venting it to the exterior.

Check out Outlaw Offroad's bad ass rear hardtop window mount rotopax.. pretty killer idea I think..and it doesn't take up an ounce of space.

Hehe, both are good points.. I'll have the top down and it would just be for a few hours (before, so I'm not too worried about the fumes. The rotopax are pretty cool. I saw the rear (and side) window mounts but I have a soft top. Also, I like being able to see out the back. Still a great idea, though..
