5.0 3 weeks with no issues

Mounted this on my roof rack so that the can sits flat on the broadside. No leaks so far, and this holder was very secure and didn't let the can sling around a lot. The hole for a padlock could be a little bigger to accommodate the slightly larger padlocks but it's not a deal breaker. I've had it about 3 weeks now with no issue.

4.0 It'll get the job done

It'll do the job. However, the locking strap doesn't hold tightly when there's no can in the holder, even when on the lowest position. The design allows for connecting multiple holders together, which is what I did for a 3 can rack.

Q: Can this be mounted to a running board? I have a Mercedes Sprinter 2500. Answer this question

A: I don’t think this would work with these. I have 3 bolted together in a pick truck bed. They work good for that. To have only partial contact on the running board my not be a good idea. You would need at 75% contact.

A: It's got 4 holes on the bottom, and 4 more on each side. If you have room to place all 4 holes, I don't see why not. It'll hold a lot of weight when full, so you're definitely gonna want to make sure all 4 holes can get screws.

A: I highly doubt that that is possible without some pretty sophisticated fabrication.

Q: I have a 1999 chev express 3500 long wheel base van, Do yall think I can mount this on one of the back doors or maybe even in side of van? Answer this question

A: It can be mounted to any flat surface.  Or any mostly flat surface with some shims. Use strong hardware, as the fuel can will be heavy when full!

A: Mine is mounted on the back bumper of my travel trailer.  We welded a little metal extention on the bumper for it to sit on. I would not recommend inside the van.  It would make your van a bomb if you ever had a wreck.

Q: Smittybilt | Part Number: S/B2798 I want to mount to driver side front of door '91YJ. I find 4ea. ~1" dia. holes in the iner body sheet metel. For Mounting? Answer this question

A: ...non..., the Smittybilt Jerry Gas Can Holder is a universal Jerry can holder, so you will have to drill some holes to mount this to the Jeep depending on where you want to mount it. Hope this helps!

Q: My 2013 Rubiocon has original equipment rear bumper and tire/wheel mount. Can this gas can be fastened to this or is some other fastener required to mount on my Jeep? Answer this question

A: Hi BD The S/B2798 is a universal gas can mounting basket but it is not designed to bolt onto the stock JK spare tire mount. We do offer a S/B2739 called the I-Rack Smart Rack. It mounts to the spare tire and comes with the gas can mount. However I do not recommend putting additional weight on the tailgate. The JK tailgate is made of very thin sheet metal and can fatigue crack. I recommend an ATLAS Rear Bumper and Spare Tire Carrier from Smittybilt. It is part number S/B76896. This an all steel rear bumper with a swing a way tire carrier on it. The tire carrier pivots off of the bumper with sealed bearings on a spindle. This bumper and tire carrier is very strong and good looking. It will carry 2 gas cans, a Hi-Lift Jack and has an antennae mount. It costs $999.99.this a good idea even if you have a larger tire and an aftermarket rim. Thank You Jon Snyder 4Wheelparts Smittybilt. It is
