Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?

I REALLY need to get one, but am up in the air about refillable vs. non-refillable, and how large, etc. I've been looking at the small 2lb kiddie non rechargeable but have also been thinking about a 5lb rechargeable...

So what are you running and where are you mounting them?

Re: Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?

5 lb rechargeable Kidd BC extinguisher mounted right at the left side seat base on my driver's seat, and a 5 lb Kidd ABC extinguisher mounted to the passenger rear wheel well (accessible from the back hatch). The one by the seat is for engine fires, and the one in the back is for anything else I may stumble upon.

Re: Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?

really the 5lb will fit there? Do you have any shots of it? I wouldn't imagine there being a whole lot of room there.

Having two is a good idea though.

engine fires dont happen to jeeps. Its not like they ran all the intake, fuel liines and exhaust all on the same side in a small confined area. haha

Re: Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?





The pictures doesn't show it, but the mount holds the extinguisher in two places, one at the top and one in the middle. I just used some self tapping screws to mount it to the seat base. It's been there for almost four years, and has never come lose when wheeling. I've used it once (car fire on the interstate) and had it refilled.

The one thing to remember no matter where you mount your extinguisher is to take it out once every six months and smack the bottom with a rubber mallet until you can hear the powder moving around. Otherwise it cakes into a ball and the extinguisher is inoperable.

Re: Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?

I've got a small one (2lb I think) mounted in the cubby on the rt side of the cargo area. came with its own holster that I screwed into the plastic.

Re: Where are you guys mounting your fire extinguishers?

I pulled the plastic trim off of the side of the seat and wedged it there. It fits perfectly and is tight enough I don't need a mount.
