    I found a jerry can and spare carrier at swingsaway.com for jimmys and blazers. It has a 400lb. cap. and is attached only by the receiver. Has anyone tried one or seen one before I buy it. Thanks

    Never seen it, but thought about making one for a buddy of mine. I'll check out this one though.

    guys, look closely at it, i don't think it will work for anybody that really wheels their vehichle, the receiver hitch has to be pretty dam low for the angle of the of the mount not to hit the tailgate when it is lowered. too bad i really need something like this.

    Now I see it. I agree 1990K5. I think it would be good for a road mechine, but not off road.

    It doesn't look too sturdy, but that is my opinion. We are looking for something like that, but I think I would rather have it bolt onto the truck or attach at the bumper, I just think that would be more stable. It's a good idea tho, like you guys said, for someone that doesn't go offroad at all. I'b be afraid to rip it right off or bend the crap out of it on something offroad.

    the great thing about it is the price. you guys are right, it doesnt look that sturdy....i guess you cant have it all, i just cant afford $350+ on a tire carrier, my spare sits on the floor in the back of my truck....the cheapest way to do it!!!
