Nice install pics...start by removing the rear sway bar. 

And remember, each sticker adds 1 hp.  :)

If gas is to go on the outside you have two choices - on the rear bumper or on the roof. Personally I don't like gasoline on the rear bumper where it's a target so that left my roof. I built a custom aluminum rack that fits up to three jerry cans so I can mix fuel and water cans. I use a super siphon to refill the rule tank in the evening leaving the full fuel can on the roof. I mix steel fuel cans with plastic water cans to reduce the rubbing on each other.

Very clean set-up Paul.  I might go that way as well.

I'm fond of the bare bones OG approach to roof top gas storage ;)
