    Do you mean purchased the blemished ones, or just Rotopax in general? I have never bought any blemished models, but they do come with a one tear warranty. I own/use the 4 gallon version and it is sturdy, built-well and easy to pour thanks to the handles.

    I ended up getting one blemished 2 gallon and one regular one. I'm going to stack. For the price point of the blemished I should of just ordered both that way. The cosmetic issues are extremely minimal. Super impressed with how sturdy these things are tho

    I have had a blemished 4 gallon one now on my roof rack for 6-8 months with no issues. It has a small dent in the corner and that is it.

    By chance could you post a photo of the blemished rotopax you purchased? I'm considering going that route. Also, Zach I'm number 19 on your current GB for one of your racks. Stoked to pick one up. I'll be throwing some rotopax on your product. Also wanting to pick up one of your bed racks in the future.

    Thanks for kindly posting any photos.

    I will when I get a chance but they are Def worth the saving. The blemishing if you wanna call it that is hardly even noticeable. I bought one perfect one and one blemished because my setup up there stacked. I should of just bought 2 blemished because they don't really look to much different

    Here is a picture of mine, you can see in the front corner how there is a small dent, that was the blemish. It really was minimal.

    I appreciate that, fellas. Done and done. Going with blemished fuel containers and then going with the group buy for water containers and mounts. Also buying 2 extra water spouts and tossing the CARB spouts that the fuel containers come with.

    Picked up 2 4 gallons at this price. Can't beat the savings. I'm wheeling. They're going to get abused. As long as they mount up like they're supposed to and hold their seal then I'm good. And you saw @zscott pics. The blemishes won't be exact amongst em all but c'mon, a bruise is a bruise. haha

    Anyone got some advice? Looking at getting (2) two gallons packs but just not sure on the mounting hardware. I want them to be mounted in the bed but I do have a tri fold cover over the bed as well
