    I would like to locate a "Jerry Can" for carrying water on my Ural chair. Found one on the Ural site with mounting hardware. Thinking 10L would be a good amount to have. Does anyone know of any resources for buying one?
    Thanks!

    Crawfords Ural sales or Holopaw Gene in Florida. When the Sovietsteeds website is back up do a search on mounting ideas. There is my write up on how I mounted my gas can and ammo box using the rubber from Kitchen drain strainers as the shock mounts. Works great!

    I got a 5 liter jerry can (German surplus) with a mounting bracket from Holopaw Gene for a great price. I might get a second one to mount on the other side.

    Here's a Google Earth street view of the front of Gene's if you ride down there some time.

    Perhaps should start a new thread... where should I mount the water can? It may be nice to mount it on the outside of the chair, throw a little weight on the outside...? like Bagmaster's mount.
    Would like to add a shovel and axe on the back side, so maybe the front would be a good spot...

    I got my 10L gas can from Crawfords (he's just down the road),and for my rig, the best place was on the inside rear corner of the 'car. With careful placement, the top of the can is just under the spare tire. I would recommend the correct spout that Crawfords also has-much easier to pour with, and it's flexible ,too. I've still got the 'water can' that was mounted on the front outside corner of my rig,but I was never really confident that this had a suitable cap for gasoline.

    edit: I ran out and took a pic in my barn.
