Yes I just bought mine and installed it about two weeks ago. Itís a very good fit. You have to remove the spare tire and studs and use their hardware. The studs however a pita to remove atleast for my vehicle. The webpage has the install instructions so you can see what your getting into, and itís in pdf so you can download it. Iíll post pics tomorrow if I remember of my install. The one problem I had with mine is that the fitment wasnít all too great.

@2.ooohhh and @Stephen Stock

Not completely true regarding the back window ... it depends on what setup of can holder you run. If you run the one that refinedcycle shows on the website then there is no room to open. If you run something different like an AT can holder (in my pic) you can open the back window sufficient enough for air flow. I have a CHITOWN4X4 power rear window with mine and I still love to use it.

I have all of Craig's (i.e. owner of refinedcycle) products and I can speak first hand to the quality and strength of his mounts. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Below are his current offerings for the FJ that I own.

Re: Another Gerry Can carrier

That can placement looks so awkward aesthetically but functional it seems.

I see what you mean, but honestly it just can't fit elsewhere and still open the door. I've seen CHITOWN4X4's version and it's in the same spot, except that the cans are full length Rotopax versions that seem less polarizing to the eye maybe?

I can tell you though that the refinedcycle version does not impede rearward vision one bit though. PLUS, the can is high enough to run a super siphon hose directly into the gas cap without removing the can Everything has it's pros and cons I guess.

I just installed the fire extinguisher bracket from Refined so I see they make quality stuff but I didnít want to give up opening the rear window- which is what happens with the jerry can so high. Im using my rig to sleep in-when traveling so need to open back window. I prefer the jerry can to rotopax but in the end went with Chi-4x4. Solely because of rear window issue.
I posted this prior to you posting the pictures- they need to modify the description to say it might impede use of window. If I saw your pictures and follow up - I would have went with what you have. Very functional and cheap. Btw where did you get that south African package up top?? And is that an air tank or propane to the right of your spare? How is it mounted?
