We are differing in opinions of what straps to use for tying down fuel cans and spare tyre on roof rack - okka straps or the ones with tension etc. Any advice please would be helpful.

Thanks Jinki

GOOD quality ratchet straps with half inch high density rubber under fuel cans.

Regards

Hi Jinki, go to "Just Straps" website, find on google, on their site put 4wdsts into search. Strap purpose made for spare tyre, plus straps for a million other purposes. Very good quality, aussie made with aussie materials. Have used their cam buckle straps for a tear or so now and very impressed. Don't work loose like the cheaper ones seem to.
Cheers, Krakka

sometimes use one of those black recycle bins.
think you can get 3 jerrys in, 2 good ratchets holds everything in place.

Make sure you put carpet or rubber or similar between the cans as well as they can rub against each other and rub through. I use a BIG tube and cut it to the length of the body of the Jerry and pull it over the jerry like a sock. Works beautifully
