2023 Snow Bike Jug Solutions

Timbersled’s 2883575 Snow Bike Jug will not be available this season. Here are your options:

Mountain Addiction Utility Jug

The Mountain Addiction 3.3 gallon utility jug is a good heavy duty jug with a self venting style spout. This is the tried and true jug used since the early days of Timbersled Snow Bike kits. There are several mounting options for the jug. First is the Mountain Addiction Snow Bike Rail & Strap kit. These rails are not like the old dove tail rails where you had to slid the jug on from the side and then pin it in place. The jug will fit straight down on these rails to engage in the channels on the bottom of the jug. The rails are curved up on the ends to cradle the jug and keep the jug from moving. Then the strap that goes from side panel to side panel securely holds the jug down on the rails. When using these rails on ARO or RIOT, we recommend also buying the ARO/RIOT Strap Hardware.

The second option for the Mountain Addiction Jug is this nice aluminum rack made by Vortech Manufacturing in Kalispell, MT. We take their short/narrow Timbersled rack, add two extra cross members to keep the MA jug up off the tunnel and off the rack mounting hardware. Then we add a M2 ladder strap and ratchet buckle strap. Very clean and secure setup.

We also have a Vortech long/narrow Timbersled rack that will accommodate the MA jug and Timbersled Tunnel Bag.

LC Utility Jug – Updated for 2023

The LC 2.5-gallon utility jug has been updated to include the better spout and they have added Black version. This is a nice little jug, but it is not as heavy duty as the Mountain Addiction. It also has a screw on vent cap which is a second point that could leak, or you could lose the cap entirely. This is a compact jug measuring 12″ long x 9″ wide x 9″ tall.

We are offering a GageBroz exclusive mounting option that includes fiber reinforced self-adhesive mat to protect your tunnel, a plastic block that screws to your tunnel to keep the jug from moving around and then a strap to hold the jug securely.

      Yes, works on both ARO 3 and RIOT 3. Photos with our mounting kit are shown on a 2024 RIOT 3 Pro in the forward most mounting position. You may not be able to run it in this forward position depending on your bike & whether you are running TSS. You have 4 options on the Gen 2 ARO and RIOT 3 based on the location of the existing torx button head bolts that you will use to secure the strap. We are currently waiting on a few parts to complete our mounting kit.
