Off topic, but have you seen They Shall Not Grow Old, the WWI movie that's made of original movie footage colorized and speed-corrected?

The curve fits the trunk. Why not the rear window and the curve of the top? I'll be that car (Plymouth?) would lean like crazy going around curves.

I worked at Chrysler and still drive new Wranglers often at work and they are huge. 4 doors are longer and wider than my wife's '05 Grand Cherokee. I'd be willing to bet that there are more aftermarket gadgets and gizmos made for newer Wranglers than for any other vehicle made. It's crazy how many Wranglers FCA sells that end up with another $10K of accessories piled on.

To DRM's point, Jeep Wrangler drives more than $1 billion in aftermarket sales.

All kicked off back in the early post-WW2 era by companies like Warn, Koenig, Ramsey and other pioneers aimed at Willys vehicles.

It's funny to me that when I bought my YJ 31 years ago, it was hard to find much aftermarket stuff for it for a couple years.  Even when YJ accessories started coming to market there wasn't much that wasn't just useless appearance junk.

I have a 4 Door JL Rubicon, and a 47 CJ2a... so I'm schrodinger's yuppie? I just like Jeeps, and the outdoors.

To the OP's point though, that's a nuts amount of money for 2 gallons. LOLYou're not wrong there. Looks cool though. I might do something similar but fab it myself. Not very many good options for a Jerry can on the JL.

Yeah, if you put it on the side, you're making a wide vehicle W-I-D-E.  You have the front or the back as your width-limited-work-around spots and the front isn't the best idea.  The back is pretty much your default place.  I guess there's always the top...  Ouch
