    That’s what I meant. Sorry. Like on a roof rack so there is constantly gas against the cap.

    I’m surprised your washer fluid container is in one piece, and no clickers?! Come on man15AE2749-AAD7-4E63-9416-14198D7FF2A5.jpg

    Any leads in good welders in NorCal? I’ve been wanting to have my swing out redone. 10gal of fuel instead of 5gal. Higher and angled tire.

    Got his sliders. Was hoping to keep it to someone out of their garage or smaller operation so no lead time and likely cheaper

    Do you already have rotos? I have a 2gallon I was going to use when I had a bed rack, but with no rack, I think I’m gonna go sceptre cans on a swing arm

    Haha yeah I took mine out when I put the bumper on it hung way low under it. Definitely there just nice to firm up the front for less sway when driving out to the trail or really high speed stuff

    You can mount Roto's on a swing arm as well. They sit higher then jerry cans and don't take-away from departure angle. I've seen a few guys drag low hung jerry mounts on there bumpers. I've never even come close to scraping my roto's.

    I think most of the guys on here can vouch that I build glorified camping rigs and will rarely go on any terrain like that.

    I like desert/fire roads/beaches to get to cool campsites!

    This set up on the 4runner will likely be almost exactly how I have the new tacoma set up.

    Nothing wrong with cool campsites. I'm just stupid and like to do hard shit so I can break my rig and build it better. lol

    Add a drop down table behind where the 1 gallon propane tank mounts. Between that and actually having the tailgate to use you could have a really nice camp kitchen set-up in seconds.

    Hahaha I have the jeep to beat on. I'm not good at driving it, but it does great!


    Getting lots of parts in the mail right now though! Ubolt flip, timbrens, kings, shock relocate, wheels, tires. Pulled the trigger on everything on black friday and got my CMC done yesterday.
