Hi

I am making a swing away spare wheel and Jerry carrier for my Rangie, and am wondering where I can buy a jerry can holder and what sort of price I should expect to pay.

Thanks

DJ

Have a look at www.camec.com.au

Under Products\RV accessories and then about half way down the page.
You would have to ring them for a price.

DJ,
I don't get it........you're obviously a pretty dab hand with a welder if you're makin your own swing-away etc......why not just make the gerry can holder yourself too, out of a bit of checker-plate etc?

Yeah I think I might. Thought it might save me some time if I could get a decent pressed metal one cheap.

But doesn't look so. Out comes the welder again.....

Have a look at the safety aspects of carrying fuel in a jerry can on front or back of vehicle.
Virtual bomb in an accident.
There have been some posts on this topic in another forum indicating it is illegal.
Pajero's used to have jerry holders but dropped them possibl;y for this reason.

Yes there is the safety aspect if the vehicle is rear ended. No gaurantee that the jerry will break, its just as likely i think to be pushed forward through the panel work. Doesn't have to go far before the impacting vehicle hits solid rear bar and chassis.

A small vehicle is likely to go under the jerry, and a truck, well your fugged anyway.

Thanks for the concern, it is noted, but I don't think it's a major problem.

I've noticed army landys with 2 on the rear. Haven't looked closely but fairly confident they're not for water. I'll check it out as in my line of work I do a fair bit for Defence. Can't imagine they'd go that way if it was illegal.
