The receiver bolts to the frame of the Jeep. It should be positioned in front of the doors and just behind the forward body tub mount, as shown at right. The receiver can mount on either side of the Jeep – proper orientation is when the receiver is at a 90-degree angle to the side of the Jeep, and the receiver tube is forward of the base plate.

The mounting straps go on the inside edge of the frame rail, and the bolts go through the straps and the receiver to secure the receiver to the frame.

The driver’s side of the Jeep has brake and fuel lines running down the inside of the frame, so the straps need to be positioned under the lines and on either side of the line clip, as shown at right.

There are no obstructions on the inside of the passenger side frame rail.

The jerry can carriers slip into the receivers and are secured with a standard hitch pin and an anti-rattle bolt. Both are shown at right.

The anti-rattle bolt goes in through the bottom of the receiver tube and can be tightened with the Jeep’s lug wrench.

Once the receiver and carrier are installed, the tray can be installed using the 4 flat head screws, nuts and washers provided.

If desired the rubber mat provided may be attached to the tray bottom by removing the backer and pressing firmly down (once attached if it is desired to remove the tray from the tray mount the mat will be destroyed to gain access to the screws).

A jerry or NATO can may now be placed in the tray and tied down with the provided ratchet strap.

The receiver can be left permanently bolted to the frame, and the carrier can be quickly removed and installed as needed – it’s easy to install the carrier and carry a can only on trips when extra fuel may be necessary, rather than carrying the can all the time.
