Expedition Jimny Project
i love it when i plan comes together, and that rack looks mint.
that jimny is looking close to taking on the world
Cant wait to get the tent on top a soon as I have finished re-waterproofing it. Keep your eyes on here as I am also having a small light bar made for the bumper to take a couple of spots
The bracket will fit on the 3 wheel mounting bolts then the fuel cans sit over the bracket and lock in place

It was close to £300 when fitted. Obviously its better to ask Matt at MCB for a better idea as each custom one will be a different price.
The RotoPax Fuel Tanks were £140.00 for the pair, the mount kit was £49.50 and the extension to hold both tanks was £27.50

Them fuel carriers are a bit spendy though
Yes it mounts direct on the original roof rail mounting bolts
The fuel tanks are stupidly expensive but very very strong and compact.

The cans on the roof are empty and only to be used for collecting water for the overnight stay etc. The roof tent and rack keep it within the regs I have been told, but i will have remove all the back seats etc to lower the weight to carry the normal camping gear. It will be carrying far less than an expedition Landy for sure, i spent a while looking round a few finished Overlanders and they are crammed with gear both inside and on the roof, I did question this myself.
When you mean your light weight rack are you referring to the roof rails plus clip on cross bars??
