Like the low profile rack idea. One of way to many projects on my todo list. I usually carry one fuel and one water on my swing away but as my trips expand I need to pick up a second 5 gal gerry fuel can and then store my water up on top."Depends" :elkgrin:
As you might guess it is all about how far you are from the last gas station and how much offroad driving at lower MPGs is needed. The trailer has two 2.5 gallon cans on it to offset the decrease in the tow vehicle's MPGs.
On some trips I have placed 4 of my 5 gallon Scepter cans up on the roof rack which can be seen in this picture
That looks fantastic, out of curiosity, do you know how much the alucab stuff effects your fuel economy? I'm running just a basic bed rack right now but I'd love to have something like your setup eventually.Greetings! New to the Tacoma forum here, not new to Expedition Portal however. Recently purchased and started building a 2014 Tacoma TRD as my adventure / photography platform. Been driving old LC's and G Wagon, but needed a more 'plug and play' vehicle for daily use...something I can cruiser at 80mph on the highway, but also handle rocky New England trails.
