Are you going to walk back to the CG to get the Jerry can off the TT?
Yes there are a lot of options for Jeeps, but not so much my jeep (WJ).

That's true, and even the options for the Grand Cherokee depend on an aftermarket bumper or some other add-on. Sure, if you want to get OR bumpers front and rear, and give it a little lift, there are plenty of options, but for a factory Grand Cherokee, I see them being somewhat limited.

That being said, there is a really good point on here about keeping the fuel with the vehicle that uses it at all times, and that's definitely something to consider IMO.

Absolutely, i have seen a couple protected roof rack setups on WJ's. the idea of a gas tank of the roof is very odd to me. I will keep scouring the internet for ideas, thanks for all the help!

I installed this a-frame carrier on my 184BH and it can easily carry fuel cans etc. Could probably hang a jerry can on each side and then a generator or cargo box on top. Very sturdy- love it.

Looks to be a tough rack BUT 2 gas cans @about 40lbs each and a small genny and you will be adding 120 lbs directly to the tongue weight of your tow. Don't think you will want to put that much weight up front.

On my particular application there's very little tongue weight to begin with. Your mileage may vary. Maybe run with the cans in place and generator in the back of the trailer to balance- then move generator to the shelf when parked. Lots of options.
