Accessories/Fuel Can Carriers/Brodzo:
I recently purchased and installed a can carrier made by Ron
"Brodzo". This can carrier is patterned after the AMG military can carrier.
I now have the military rear bumper, military tire carrier, and (replica) military can carrier. The main reason that I went with the mil parts is that I also pull a military trailer, and the mil tire and can carriers can be opened without unhitching the trailer. This is very important because I have a wagon, and access to the rear would be blocked if I couldn't swing the carriers to open the doors.
I am very happy with the carrier that Ron built. Installation was easy, and it all looks very professional. Installation on a civilian bumper would require drilling some additional holes in the bumper. (These holes and the CARC paint are the only differences between the mil and civ "air-lift" bumpers.)
Since the carriers block two of the three rear marker lights on my Hummer, I decided to move the lights to the top of the rear, above the "ambulance style" rear doors. This was fairly simple to do. I extended the wiring harness, drilled a few holes and re-mounted the lights. Looks quite good now, and I am legal once again.
The wires were re-routed as follows:
All of the wiring was protected using the corregated plastic wire harness stuff available from most auto supply houses.
If anyone else is interested in doing this, I would be happy to provide additional details.
