Over the years, Garvin Racks has released one slick cargo management solution after another. Many of them are specifically designed around Rotopax fluid containers. From roof rack affixed 3 and 4-gallon Rotopax fuel tanks to Trail Rack RotoPax Can Holder mounts and factory tailgate spare tire container brackets for JL Jeep Wranglers, the mounting solutions Garvin Industries comes up with are equally brilliant.
This same level of creativity and practicality is apparent in one of the latest products to boast the Garvin Racks catalog: The 2018+ JL Wrangler hardtop Rotopax Interior Mount.
Everyone knows that proper packaging is crucial for any overlanding adventure. Gavin designed its H20 mount set up so that it would not interfere with the JLU cargo bay. Space and capacity is already very limited on any Jeep Wrangler. Taking advantage of a tidy cargo mounting solutions is critical. This stealthy H20 addition is an ideal upgrade for those looking to keep additional water supplies hidden and out of the elements.
Bracketry is manufactured from ¼” thick American-made steel, and powder coated in a durable black finish. Pricing sits right about $86 pre-tax, and as with many of the other accessories offered on the company’s website, does not require the 4-6 week lead time like roof racks, and will ship within a week.
Things to Consider Before Buying Garvin Industries’ JL Wrangler Rotopax Interior Mount
Just remember that both the Rotopax water can and the LOX Pack Mount are required in order for this setup to function, therefore a separate purchase must be placed for these items outside of the Garvin website. It is also worth noting that this H20 hydration setup won’t work on the Jeep Gladiator or on soft-top JL Wranglers.
It should be noted that Garvin’s JLU 4d Utility Rack is compatible and can be used in conjunction with the Rotopax Can Mounts. This cargo tray-style system allows for a better way to tie-down gear. It is bolted on with no drilling required. Stepping up the storage game has never been easier.
American Made and Here to Stay
Perhaps one of the greatest things about the products produced by Garvin Industries, are the people behind it all. To this day, Garvin remains completely family-owned and operated and manufactures out of their El Cajon, California company headquarters. Every rack and accessory made bears a badge stating it has been 100% made in America. 45+ years later, every ounce of steel this company uses is still American-made.
Not familiar with Garvin Industries? You might recognize some of the companies it has worked with in the past. The southern California-based brand is most well-known for its collaborative work with Warn Industries. Garvin was also responsible for designing, engineering, and manufacturing the roof racks for the civilian Hummer back in the day.
