Gas cans on the roof rack would be extremely dangerous. Some overlanders did it with Diesel oil in the old days because they didn't have a better alternative, but with gasoline it's insanity. It's...

Looks like you're using it. Personally, I wouldn't envy a Camel Trophy rig. They were 8000 pounds and had 111hp and 195ftlbs torque. I think we could generally speculate a Discovery 2 has half the...
