Thread: ammo cans for storing fluids/oil in the jeep?

  1. #1

    Question ammo cans for storing fluids/oil in the jeep?

    I am wondering if using plastic or metal ammo cans to store fluids/oil in the jeep is a good way to prevent spills? I have just been throwing the quart oil bottles on the floorboard, but I am fearful that they might get punctured or rupture and make a huge mess. Does anyone else have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    X2 I run a six quart one: motor oil, trans oil, power steering fluid, and brake fluid with a couple of them doubled up.

    Ammo cans are a decent solution because they can be hard mounted, easily. They are waterproof and fit a variety of stuff. They are bulky, though.

    That said, like the above comments, I opted for Artec. It's a smaller footprint, that is purpose built. No worry about things shifting around, as they are locked in place. The 6-pack fits my needs, well.

    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    I went with the Ballistic fabs version of the oil bottle holder. Only because it opened on the left instead of the right, and they are made down in Tucson.
