    RotoPax mounts on the back of my 07' Tacoma. RotoPax cans are somewhat new to the off road community and my experience with them has been nothing short of stellar. Seen here is the 4 gallon gas can, the dry storage rotopax container and the first aid container. I use the rotopax deluxe locking mounts to secure my contents. The "ECO" nozzle on the gas can takes a little getting used too but after a few times it's a breeze. I purchased all of the rotopax stuff here in the pics from Sierra Expeditions in Tempe, AZ but they are available locally at High Country 4x4.

    enough to get me there
    Are you using an allpro bed rack? If so, how do you like it. The only reason i havent gotten one yet, is that im still using my toyota oem tool storage box. I cant justify buying a tool chest like the uws.

    No I am using a custom built bed rack from Brandon at Avid Off Road. I do like the ALL Pro design but on the trails I think a bolt together rack like the ALL Pro wouldn't be as strong as one solid frame. Besides Brandon added a bunch of custom things to my rack that All Pro doesn't offer just yet.

    To many to list here, see my build info on my website.
    I have a set of RotoPax on my truck as well, they are fantastic. I have a split 4 gallon gas container, a split 4 gallon water container and 4 2 gallon storage containers. The storage containers hold all my recovery gear and a level 2 first aid kit. Of course I also have the locking mounts as well.

    OP , are the dry storage and first aid kit the same size and modular to the 2 gallon gas containers ?

    Thinking of getting a 2 gallon / 2 gallon gas set up and wondering if the same mount set up would fit a dry storage / first aid ( or water )

    I went with the All-Pro rack and had it welded together and custom container mounts welded on, the spacing was off to use the standard Rotopax mounting plate.
