Do you enjoy off-roading your Jeep? Yet, does the thought of being deep in the woods and low on fuel seem to diminish the fun? To ensure you have enough gas for your adventure, you could stuff a 5-gallon plastic jug and all the related filler funnels and hoses into your interior, which is neither convenient nor safe, or you could hang a nice-looking jerry can onto the tailgate of your Jeep. Anvil Off-Road, a Holley Performance Products Company, now offers a 5.3-gallon jerry can that will give your Jeep that classic WWII Willis MB look.
The Anvil jerry cans are offered in red, yellow, blue, or green (MSRP $79.99), and to secure the jerry can, Anvil has a Metal Mounting System (part no. 2791AOR, MSRP $49.99) that can be bolted or welded onto your Jeep, trailer, or an off-road 4×4 Mopar. The cans are constructed of 9/10 mm pickled steel metal that is lined with a rust preventative coating that is resistant to breakdowns from gasoline, diesel, oil, or alcohol. These jerry cans are EPA approved and 50-state CARB certified for sale and use. Additionally, the jerry cans are built to ASTM, NFPA, and DOT standards and are OSHA compliant.

The Anvil Off-Road jerry cans have a splash-free, fast-fill pour, which makes them easy and convenient to use. If you have an unleaded filler neck on your Jeep, there is an adapter to use with the smaller filler neck opening. When in storage, these jerry cans have a bayonet-type closure that eliminates leaks regardless of the position of the can. If you have a concern about running out of fuel while off roading, or you just want the cool Willys MB Jeep look of the external jerry can attached to the tailgate, check out Anvil Off-Road’s website for the jerry can options and all of the off-road products they offer.
