    Good morning everyone! I want to add a fire extinguisher to my build for obvious reasons. Here id the mount I am looking at on Amazon. Looks pretty cool, and I like the quick release design.
    https://www.amazon.com/Drake-Off-Roa...e+extinguisher

    Where would you mount one of these? Would you mount it where you can reach it strapped into your seat? OR would you mount it somewhere in the back maybe behind the seat to where if you crash, and are knocked out and someone can access it quickly mounted in the back. What are your thoughts and opinions on locating one.

    Nice piece.

    Placement can be a toss up just for the reasons you've stated. The chances of both ko'd and fire are probably the lowest but I'd mount it so anyone has access. You should be able to get out quickly enough if there is a fire (adrenaline is good in these situations) and then go about getting to the extinguisher. Just my opinion, though.

    I've always placed them close to any fuel filling area or near the engine bay - usually where it happens.

    I put mine under the passengers legs, in front of the seat. Easy for either to grab in case of an emergency

    Good info guys. I think I will put one between my legs, and just in front of my seat.

    I've been running 2 - one within reach of the cab, one easily reached from outside. I try to put the outside one in a location where it wouldn't get destroyed if I roll the car. The drake mount is a good unit, I have a few.

    I mounted mine on the floor, ahead of driver's seat, under drivers knees.

    Great info guys. I will be mounting the extinguisher just in front of the seat on the floor. Seems like the most logical place to me.
