So I installed a roof rack, then had an idea and mounted my jerry can. It functional and solid, but a few of my jeeping buds tell me sucks and looks bad. I am more into functional, and never really cared much what people think, but I guess I do care a little after all! So I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

I don't really care for it. Most of my concerns are that if it gets even scraped by a tree it's going to cause body damage.

I’d tear that off within 15-30 min of a trail with it . Some rock ledge or cedar tree would rip or crush it out or inward.
Then , fuel would gush somewhere , possibly all over the engine or cats or who knows and the potential to be remembered as ,” Fireball Jeffery” or “ Gascan Van” would be then possible . I don’t want to be remembered like that.


It would seem you cou,d only open door about 1/3 of the way unless you fold the side mirror in, but maybe I’m wrong.

By proxy, it serves as cowl

armor but that’s the only redeeming aspect of running that storage there so, I vote ,” No”.

No, nope, neaux. I did that to my old CJ 5 back when that was the thing to do. The bracket that I used was similar to yours. The accumulation of dirt and mud in between the bracket and body led to corrosion which led to an expensive repair. Mine was on the drivers side. Yeah it looks cool but that’s about it.
