I plan to go on a trip sometime soon and would like to carry tanks of extra gas. I don't have a rear bumper yet and don't want to store the gas inside as it'll stink. Any ideas on how I can mount these things? I was thinking on the stock roof mounts somehow.

Storing gas tanks inside, expecially almost empty ones, could result in an "uncontrolled release of energy", or a large, fatal explosion including a huge fire ball!

Don't ever, under any circumstances, do that!!!!!:eek: Besides, it would ruin a perfectly good Land Cruiser! See last line below!

get a proper Jerry Can and a good holder for it. These cans won't leak.

Can you mount one of those jerry can holders to an OEM roof set-up. I use the Front Runner ones, but think they are only for FR rock racks.

I was traveling in the Canadian wilderness, plus even if I wasn't I might consider carrying extra due to their high gas prices.
