Do you like the new gas can design?  I looked at them breifly before I went a head and bought a regular metal Jerry can.  Now I kind of wish I would have jumped on the new style.

Also, what did you use for mounting the hi-lift to your carrier?  Looking at mounting a hi-lift to my roof rack now and everything is crazy expensive.  Did you custom fab something?

Even a shovel and axe mount is expensive.  There has to be an easier cheaper way.

The roto pac are a little expense, but they are well worth it, but you need to buy the free flow nozzle separately thou,  I got the 3 gal and there single can mount, I just used some grade 8 bolts and big thick washer and nuts to mount the high lift. Scratched my head for awhile trying to figure out how to make it all fit. I have an old con-ferr ax and shovel mount they I might still add also, I guess they are now called Defenderracks that simple and works great

I was looking at your swing-out... and, great work!!

How did you do the pivot point?? Details would help me in the future for my own build.

Is your pin working out, the one holding it steadfast to the bumper? I'd think if you were to get a bouncin', there'd be a lot of pressure on the pin and possibly make it hard to get out over time. Is it threaded, or just a pin type with small locking ball?

... I only think you need to add a shovel and axe for the cool factor, and that blue moon occasion of needing it. ;)
