Hi all, I ordered my roof rack and fit kit, from autopartsdealer.com yesterday for $819.44 delivered!!! Best deal I could find!
Now I need some help, I want to moun my 48" hi lift jack and I have 2 Scepter Jerry cans I want to mount. Any suggestions?
I found the ARB Jerry can mount but im concerned, the pics show it mounted to a mesh bottom ARB rack, mine is not mesh. Thanks for helpin a newbie.:wave:

I had my Hi-Lift up on my (ARB) rack, but I took it down because it was very noisy up there. I used fourtreks mounts like these, but they are very expensive.

Hi-Lift Roll Bar Mounts 1.75

My roof rack has the full mesh on it and I think that was somehow contributing to amplifying the noise.

I now have my Hi-lIft on my ARB front bumper using similar fourtreks mounts.

Hi-Lift actually makes a real nice mount now for much less dough.

As for the gas containers up on the rack, since I have the mesh floor, I just throw a ratchet strap around them and hit the trail. Haven't had any issues.

You can check my build thread and see the various configurations I've gone through.

Cheers.

:cheers:

OK my fears are confirmed, hard to find. Any suggestions for a similar rack with easy to find accessories? I can still cancel my order.

You can get these nice can holders from Expedition Exchange and mount them on almost any rack.



Here is a link the their site - good guys.

Wedco Jerrycans -- EE -- Expedition Exchange Incorporated

I would use this mount from Hi-Lift to mount the jack on the rack.

Hi-Lift Adjustable Tube Mount (TM-700/TM-750) - Mount your Hi-Lift Jack to tube bumpers, bull bars, roll cages or roof racks | Hi Lift Jack Company

You would want to use the 1"-2" model if you go with the ARB rack.

You might want to also check out BajaRack if you haven't done so already.

Many thanks to volhoo, I appreciate the effort to help me. I like the ARB rack, just didnt anticipate a P.I.T.A. finding accessories.

I spoke too soon, I cant cancel my order, It is scheduled to be delivered 1-14, I did find that FJOEL makes some sick mounts, he said he is coming out with a new locking version very soon! Looks like I will go that route. Thanks for the feedback
