    I have a 1978 CJ-5. I had purchased the Smittybilt 2798 Jerry Can holder and mounted it on a Smittybilt tire carrier mount. I thought this device was flimsy, but thought it would past muster considering all the great reviews. I guess most don’t live where I do, and if you live in an area with nice paved roads, then this would should work fine for you. But this this past weekend, I made my way up to the Flat Tops Wilderness here in Colorado ( a very beautiful area for camping and four wheeling), and the roads/trails are only what I would term moderately rough. Well on my way into the Flat Tops on a very good road, the bracket that holds and locks the can, broke on the Smittybilt Jerry can carrier, and my Jerry can filled with gas bounced off totally unbeknownst to me. Upon arrival at camp and discovering it was gone, I did back-track to try to locate the Jerry can (fillled with 5 gals of hi-test gasoline), but to no avail. Moral of the story, my initial gut reaction that this device was rather flimsy was totally right on. I am out a gas can, and five gallons of gas (and I had not even made it to the side trails. My advice… look further or fabricate your own). JimRead more

    Decent holder for the price. I welded mine to the tire carrier on my truck and it works well enough BUT required some very thick rubber on the base to raise my particular jerry can otherwise the top latch would have been useless.Read more

    Bought this for my roof rack. After purchasing a jerry can on Amazon, it suggested this mount. Once I received the mount, the jerry can did not fit length wise. I had to beat it with a hammer to bend it wide enough for it to fit. Totall disappointment for something new and had to modify. Plus, I understand no hardware is included but basic bolts could have been provided.Read more

    I tried to contact the person I purchased from and no responces so I am doing a review of product. As you can see from the first few pictures the weld is not holding. Screwdriver handle is for you to see non weld. This just from installing and no gas put in to gas cans yet to go camping. So I don’t trust product when the person can’t even respond about product. The weld didn’t hold so when you put gasoline in the gas can it might end up all over the truck bed when you get to the camping spot you went to. Gas everywhere to explode and I don’t smoke. I will have to bring out my mig welder before I use this item of which I bought 2 of them. One for each of my 4×4 trucks. Check out before you trust the gas can holder.Read more

    Worked well for what it was intended plus some. I bolted it to my ladder on my FJ Cruiser and it holds a 5.5 gallon Scepter gas can or a 6 gallon Igloo water jug, depending on my needs. I’d give it 5 stars but after only two weeks, there is rust forming around the weld joints. I can see me replacing this after several years. Another thing is the security bracket that secures the cans seems rather, well, cheaply made. If someone wanted to take the jug, I don’t foresee them having any problems doing so. Other than that, it’s a good product.Read more

    This is a good fix for us. We have a pop up camper we tow with a Hummer H2. The hummer gets 8 mpg by itself. Towing the camper, probably 5 mpg. Don’t judge. We bought 2 of these Jerry Gas Can Holders and mounted them to the front of the camper trailer. After some planning and thought, we decided to first mount a 2×6 to the frame and then mounted the holders to the 2×6. The can fits in snugly and there is no movement within the holder. Only flaw I found is the rubber spacers that came with it. They came loose very easily when putting the can in and out. The fix for that is put silicone seal on them to hold in place. Looks like the most critical spot would be on the bottom where the weight of the can rests will be metal on metal without the spacers. Side note, the holders came to me really fast. The Jerry cans I bought along with them on amazon take 7 to 10 days. So, if you are ready to bug out soon, buy the holders here but get the cans locally.Read more

    Bought this for my 05 Wrangler, and immediately noticed the paint on the strap was chipped off in several places, right out of the box, so no wonder it would rust within weeks. The rubber pieces are not glued down, I doubt they will hold in place with a can being pulled out. The welds on the hinges are poor and there are a couple spots that are sharp still. Does not come with any mounting hardware either. I’m leaving this at 1/5 stars until I can test it out on the trails. Overall, skip this and put the $36 into a better quality jerry can mount.Read more

    Had major issues with this jerry can holder. Insatlled on back of vehicle and it rained over night. The entire surface started to rust. Another problem is the fact that no jerry can fits properly. I tried 3 diffrent jerry cans. The best fit was the waiven can but still too much space around the can. I returned the first holder and got another one. Painted it before anything with a good rust paint. Make sure to lightly sand with 400 sandpaper. The steal is heavy but paint should be much better. As for the lose fit I will use a strap to secure it better. Why do all this ? because I didn’t see any other choices out there for a holder. hope this helpsRead more

    I was skeptical about this one but it pays off to take chances sometimes. Comes primed, paint it whatever color and doesn’t come with hardware such as bolts and nuts. Multiple hole patterns. I will be mounting it on the side of my jeep by driver side.Read more

    Purchased this to carry extra fuel on my Jeep for backroad trips. It doesn’t really fit anywhere to bolt on easily. I decided to ratchet strap it onto my spare tire. I may need to design my own bracket for it or switch to a different spare fuel carrying system. Also Sceptre military style 20L fuel can doesn’t fit all the way in so the hinged metal strap to lock it in the holder doesn’t fit.Read more

    Very simple product as the end, easy to load and unload the jerican. The only issue I have is the some rust is already coming after a bit more of 3 month on my roof rack. Let see how much time it will hold. I tought Smittybilt was better hoppefully I didnt buy any roof top tent from them… Update May 10 2019: Still firmly setup on my roof rack but both of jerican holder have suffered from the weather. Several spot of rust which are getting worst after almost a year… so it will not last for long. it still hold the jerican properly but…Read more

    The carrier itself is as expected, not overly well built but not junk either. It would be of benefit if there were a Jeep Wrangler spare tire adapter/spacer about 2 1/4″ thick to bolt it to. I haven’t seen one and it seems like a no brainer. Should be in the “also bought” category. Yes I know the tailgate isn’t meant for the weight but I don’t drive around with it full all the time. Pretty much when I’m getting fuel or going camping.Read more
