Once it’s modified with larger tires and low gears and with weight added, the JK Wrangler doesn’t return good fuel economy. We’re seeing between 11 to 16 mpg. With the two-door’s small 18.5-gallon gas tank, that equates to not much range in the backcountry. It’s hard to beat the old NATO Jerry Cans. They don’t leak, but are large, heavy, and need large brackets to carry them. In keeping with Sleeper’s mission to be relatively lightweight and not have equipment permanently hanging from it, we needed another solution for carrying extra gas. Rock-Slide Engineering (R-SE) has developed their EZ Rack that carries RotopaX gas cans, as well as other equipment, by using the spare tire as the mounting point. RotopaX gas cans are roto-molded in the USA, are easy to carry, and don’t leak. R-SE’s new EZ Rack carries the RotopaX on slick plates that locate against the spare, held tightly by a ratchet strap. It works, even on a flat tire. You just ratchet the strap tighter on a flat spare.
