Im looking to purchase a Fire Extinguisher for my rig and was wondering what everyone is using. Thanks in advance, and if this has been discussed already my apologies.

I use a couple 2.5lb BC rated fire extinguishers (One in cabin of truck, one in bed), you can get them at any target, walmart, meijer, etc. You would be surprised how quickly you go through them when you actually have a fire scenario

Ive had a fire in my engine bay before and its not so fun to cleanup afterwards either...

I have a 2.5 lbs mounted to my rack system. I just drilled holes to install the mount.

I also carry a small 1lb in the cup holder of the drivers’ side. Like New Holland said, fires can get pretty hairy fast. 1BCF741C-C010-44AF-ADE7-C256627F28DC.jpeg

I have an ABC one at the base of my passenger seat. I’ve looked at those element ones as well but I’d personally rather have a full on extinguisher I think. I may or may not get a second one as a safety measure. Vehicle fires can go quick

I recommend something a little more secure such as a "drake Mount"


*Ive had my truck on fire before (small engine bay fire from a bad electrical sheeth laying on the exhaust). You really do want 2 fire extinguishers if you want to be serious about it. I carry one in the bed of the truck and one in the interior...fires are scary when they are actually happening!
