Oh! I might give this a try on my trip that starts on Friday. I was worried about carrying extra fuel.

2k miles in and is working well. Did some off roaring and seems to be working well. Most likely a temp solution.
I love the Idea of this and just got mine in yesterday, I like the idea of not always having it attached to the vehicle.

I’ll sell my rockslide engineering strap mount to you for cheap. I found a more permanent solution.0

I have these and mounted the same RotoPax in exactly the same way! Worked great on a recent trip from Portland, OR to Death Valley, Arizona, and back.

Do you use hinge reinforcement with these? How much extra weight when those are full? Is the fuel container a 3 gallon?

Fuel weighs about 6.5 lbs per gallon and I think these are 2-3 gallon containers. So 39 lbs for two containers plus the spare.

Hinge mounted options exist also. That’s the way I went. This one is from the company who made mine. Drago Jeep Products.

That looks really nice. I can't find them online except for a FB page. Where did you get it?
