    This got me to create the following how to:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Get an ammo can of desired size, i got a large one cause i liked the size, but any size will do
    NOTE: Short cans will sit level mounted on the side, tall cans sit crooked cause of the uneven sides. Tall cans sit great along the cab rail.

    Mmmmm M224 Mortar
    [​IMG]

    Monster sticker extra (dont think i like it)

    Drill two... level holes... and there are two mounting options

    Factory square head bolts and spin on "nuts"
    [​IMG]

    OR

    Make your own, I made these tonight just so i could show you guys/gals

    Its not that hard, took me about 15min, and I had all the hardware...

    Both mounting options fit the same in the truck

    Have Fun! Hope it works out for people.

    I decided to clean this up a little this afternoon. It's pretty obvious what this is for. I have had to apply two tourniquets to injured motorcycle riders this past year so putting this on the outside should help for those "just in case" moments.
