A number of folks have asked how we mounted the jerry can holders to the tongue of the Morris Mule trail-grade trailer. Here's how...
We purchased Smittybilt's jerry can holders. Bill fabricated the mounting brackets that attach the holders to the trailer.
There are two pieces of angle iron for each jerry can. They are about 8 inches long and drilled to match the holes on the trailer.

Bill stiffened the mounts a with a piece of 16 gauge steel that is 12 inches by 5.5 inches; one for each mount.

The extra hole (top left) is the result of freehand fabrication... drilled straight into a bolt. Oops.

Bill bolted the angle iron onto the trailer and then clamped everything together before marking and drilling everything freehand.

Do We Sell the Custom Mounting Brackets
We have been asked if we sell the mounting brackets like the ones we made for George (our Morris Mule trailer). We have no plans to manufacture nor sell the mounting brackets.
