    Finally done. The sliders are 2x4 3/16 square tube, capped, angled and mounted to the frame with 2x2 3/16 square tube and grade 8's. I also made a cross member that links the sliders together to take some stress off of the frame.

    The rear is 2x4 and 2x2 3/16 with 10 guage sheet metal. The tire carrier is 2x4 3/16 held on with a 1" x 10" grade 8. The bolt has 2 contact points and passes through 4 sections of the 3/16. There is a grade 8 nut welded in near the bottom. I also ran a seam down the path so that the bolt threads all the way down and used flanged bronze bushings to keep things smooth. The other side is a 9/16 grade 8 and another nut welded in.

    The sides of the rear are 3/16" square tube, capped and angled in the front and then skinned in the 10 gauge sheet metal. They follow the original rub strip.

    The whole thing is mounted to a set of CUCV mounts with lots of 9/16" grade 8's and has CUCV clevis rings.

    The gas cans are NATO 5 gals and the mount is 3/16" angle iron. I boxed in an original Chevy license plate mount so thatI could retain the light for inspection purposes.

    The pics are a little dark, but you get the idea. If the sun ever comes out I will post some better pics -

    Do the containers swing out on the left side or to the right with the tire?

    You know it. Thanks guys.

    Badmix - I use the Burb for camping/mild crawling.

    JC - The whole thing swings out as one unit.
