This is my new favorite Local shop. A little mom and pop place, litteraly. Super cool people and tons of products. Everything they had is cheaper than ORW or 4WP.
It is jeep centric but lots of other stuff too. I got a Warn heavy duty snatch block for 58 bucks, 2 non carb jerry cans for 42 each(the one in the ebay picture is carb but I think they have 3 more non carb ones in OD green I woulda got them but I already have 2 red ones), and a hi lift isolator for 12 bucks. The ebay price is a little lower due to them having to add on shipping costs. I definitly reccomend this shop to anyone in the southland.

Glad to hear that you guys had a positive experience with the place. It's the mom and pop stores that you can count on. It is the customer service that is gonna keep them in business. prices help but it is not the bottom line that counts. I wish I could get some more mods. Everytime I look at stuff my damn wife tells me that I can not buy it. Damn I am whipped. Life sux for me.

I asked if these were CARB or NONCARB and this is what I got. I also asked if they would leak on its side.

"We have carb and non carb compliant gerry cans. The carb compliant ones are 49.99 and the non carb ones are 38.99. I am not sure if they would leak because they are made to stand upright."

I have the Carb ones already for months now and they dont leak a drop, even from getting hot and cold as long as you have the metal cap on tight. the thing that sucks about the carb cans is they come with this sub standard plastic spout that does not seat well so it dribbles out the side as you try to pour and also the spout is some sort of spring mechanism that requres you to insert a small funnel into your tank then line up the spout and then press down to start the fuel to flow. the non carbs just have a simple bendy hose that goes right into the fuel tank and has no flow restrictor. I have not filled the non carb ones yet but from the design being so simaler I have confidence that they will not leak. I will post up results when I fill em, probably not til gas drops down under 355 a gallon.

Could you maybe fill them with water and report back. The non carb ones. I did some moon lite work and got a good chunk of cash comming in by the end of the week and hope to buy a bunch of recovery stuff for the rack. I kinda wanna do the same thng mud did and rip off his idea. Just because it is so kool.

OK, so the test turned out good, no leaks on the side. one thing that I was thinking though is that the non CARB got a looser seal on them than the CARB. the Carb ones have a wrench down bung, and the old style have a hand twist cap with a flow screw on the opposite side. I think if you are going to keep them always sideways you should get the CARB version. only 3 bucks more. I am getting a swing out with can carriers soon so I will probably keep the Non CARB cans on that for easy access and usage and keep the CARB ones on top layed down for long hauls and emergencies.

Good deal. I was just worried that the non carb ones might leak. Was not going to store water in them on there sides. Just needed a test subject or product. Again thanks.
