Tube style FJ40 tire carrier modified...

I jumped on the free carrier that davework was offering a bit ago to construct a jerry can rack for my FJ40.

A little cutting, some cold bending of the tweaked frame, some welding...

Went from this....

Modified the hinges to be removable, so the brackets on the tub are all remaining when I decide to remove it.

Wired the framework so the license plate carrier can be lighted when on the rack, and also when mounted on the tailgate. I welded some bolts as studs on both the rack, and the tailgate to accommodate the license plate holder...:blah::blah::blah:

I have steel diamond plate corners on the tub, so didn't have to fortify the corners to hold the weight.

Very Nice!

Well done. Do you have a spout for that style jerry can? If so, where'd you get it. I picked up one of those at an estate sale for $10.

The cans came with a spout too...Craigs list....$25 for the three cans, and spout...Heck-of-a-deal!!!

You can nab a spout at McGukins in Boulder that screws onto the gas can. They are WAY better than the old metal ones that leaked and broke after a few uses.
