    Is it just attached at the slider thing? If the weight was distributed evenly along that rail I am sure it can hold 200 lbs easy. If most of the weight is at the bottom of that can it may become a little wobbly through the ruff stuff

    I have 25ft of 3/8 chain as well as the winch adapters for my highlift in an ammo box mounted like that and it doesnt budge. I have a 1/2 carrier bolt in each bed rail with a nut inside the box and a lock on the front.

    Exactly the same thing I was thinking on how to mount it. I don't think I'd have more than 75lbs max at any giving time, more so 20-30lbs. Just didn't want to drill holes in my ammo can and mount it before I knew it could hold some decent weight.
