View Full Version : carrying water

August 18th, 2004, 03:08 PM
When headed off camping in the boonies with the family, the one shortfall we tend to run into is a good supply of water. We have the collapsible bottles, but with limited space in my '03 TJ when fully loaded with people and gear, they don't get filled until we get set up.

I know there are water cannisters available that are like jerry cans. Has anyone attached these without a swing-away tire carrier?

I'd like to know what people are using (if anything) to carry water on their TJs.

I use what I think is a 2 gallon blue plastic jug. Its got a spiggot on it and a vent. I keep it filled if I have the room for it. Its about 1'x1'x 10" tall with a handle.

I typically bring a water purifier (from my old backpacking days...when I was young!! :D.....3 years ago! ). I carry enough water for the day and in case I really need more I have to option to clean some water I find along the way.
