Over the long weekend I was able to refurbish my old Gas Cans from my old Durango and get them mounted into the bed of the new truck.

Here’s from when they were on my Durango... my only picture I have was when I had only mounted one

So I bought some spray on Bed liner and coated the baskets before mounting them in the bed...

After mounting the baskets I then sprayed the mounting points with bed liner just to seal everything up

I did make some support brackets to make sure I didn’t get side to side motion that would eventually tear the baskets out of the bed and still allows access to the lower tie-downs

Then I painted and clear coated the Jerry Cans to match the truck, sorry no pictures of that part...
But here they are in the bed

I figure I can alway rattle can these as they get used and dinged up.

We do use them whenever we go camping for our generator, but I figure it’s always nice to have them back there for “just in case” scenario.

I have plans for the bed up by the cab, so that’s why I mounted these to the rear...

So I guess this is my first official mod
LOL

Nice! Love the look, great job. You may have just motivated me to do the same as I have two mil spec jerry cans in the garage....

I've had a few of those mounted on previous 4x4's. I added some foam tape to the insides of the holders to prevent them from rattling.

I thought about doing that as well, but I have had the cans, while in the sun, expand with fuel in them to the point they were hard to get out of their baskets. So that’s the only reason I haven’t done the foam tap yet
