I have a 5 gallon fuel pack i carry on my grizzly and wanted to be able to carry it in my wolverine. I didn't want to drill holes in my bed, so after some thought I came up with this.
I used the groove for storing the tailgate and cut a 2x6 to fit.


Then I screwed the mount plate to the 2x6



It fits perfectly



And takes up very little space

It is a great idea. I was going to buy the 5 gallon rotopax, but was afraid that it would limit how much, and how I could fit things in the bed. I thought about putting it up there in the front of the bed somehow, but have never owned a rotopax and was skeptical about having 5 gallons of fuel right behind me that could blow up. I ended up going with the 3 gallon one and was amazed with it. They really do not leak, and the plastic is very heavy gauge. In hindsight, I wish I had done the same thing. Nice work.

Thanks guys! Now that I think about it, I guess if I needed the space i could replace the tailgate with the fuel pack and open up a little more space

Yes but here is the good news that plate and tank was on the front rack of my Honda rubicon, all I did was move it over to wolverine it fit like it was made for it I used zip ties to fasten to the back two hold downs. And had plenty of room for my chest.

Sweet! I took mine to WV a few weeks ago and put on a little better than 80 miles a day. We stopped for lunch and gas around 3 both days and i never got below half a tank. The 900 RZR with me needed my spare fuel, but I never got close to needing it. I would rather have it and not need it than the other way around though. You never know where a good ride might take you and it very well could be far away from a gas station!

Where did you ride in WV. We're going to bluefield next week for 4 days riding Indian ridge, pennicle and Pocahontis. We're in central WV and ride all of hatfields a lot.

I don't think you would ever feel the difference between a 3 gal and a 5 gal explosion. :p
