Going to be putting on the JCR rear bumper with the adventure rack. Where is the best place to get Jerry cans for gas?

I would say that wavian has the best but I have not tested them all. Go to Coleman’s surplus to get the German wide mouth Jerry can for around $40, a used nato can for around $32
Wavian cans are pricier but they are very well made, they are $80 a piece.
I run two at most times.

Ive had a set of midwest can jerrys for about 10 years. The original caps are trash, throw them out before you even put fuel in them. I put a set of ez pour caps and they haven't leaked a drop.

Been using a pair of old school cans for decades. I use a “ donkey “ nozzle, or siphon and never have any excuse for spillage. B0FA7D5F-000F-4D99-B4DE-EB15FC271470.jpeg

You can get Scepter Military fuel cans on Ebay . They are expensive but worth it.

Another Scepter fan here but be aware Scepter also makes military water cans that look similar to their fuel cans. The water cans will have a single bar for a handle at the top and the fuel cans will have three.
