OR Fab tire carrier question

As you may or may not know I have the Desert Snake Rotopax carrier and was wondering if you think my setup with dual (4 cans total) statcked up would be able to clear the OR Fab carrier w/ jerry mount? From just the pictures it looks like there is room. Traditional jerry can's are heluva lot wider than my rotopax. Desert Snake maybe you can chime in.

If you take some measurements and give OR-Fab a call they can tell you if it will work or not pretty fast.

They are at (928) 636-7080.

Dude that set up is killer. Awesome rig broda. This is exactly what i was looking for. I emailed OR Fab and he replied with pushing their rotopax brackets, like what you got. It looks like if their brackets clear them then my Desert Snake plate will clear too execpt mine are attached to the tailgate and not the carrier.

I like the fact that OR Fab replied to my email though in about 30 minutes.

I have the non can mount version. Functions awesome and looks great. Just make sure they put a good finish on it ( mine is bicycle black ) and I had to have the majority of it replaced due to a bad paint job that rusted within a few weeks. DEFINITELY paint all the washers and spacers on the hinge prior to install, they will rust almost immediately if you don't, and a PITA to fix after. Just my 2 cents. still recommend it though.

Nice HD custom tag/back-up camera set-up. Any pics of your bronco on the web?

Thanks. I also moved the tire up higher when I did the switch to a flange mount. Here's the Bronco.
