Jack Stilts - I have attached some pics. It isn't the prettiest thing since there is no powdercoating shop here and cheap spray-on paint and brush on rust inhibitor is all I could find. However, it works well. I have stood on it to load it and it has supported me (205lbs), the tire w/rim, 40lbs of gas and two large North Face Camping bags (est 85lbs). The most I have had on it while driving was est. 160-170lbs and the only thing that happened was the mounts from the drop in rack slid a little on the factory rack. And that was driving on 60KM of Congolese dirt roads, which are the equal to trail driving in the states. Since then I put truck topper tape between the factory rack and the drop in rack, no squeaks, no sliding.
The small compartment off of the back is for the jerry can. I also welded two loops on there so I could use one ratched strap to hold it down (one side is off-set a little for the jerry can nozzel).
Let me know if you have any other questions.
