Fire Extinguishers in cabin

Front Fire Extinguisher:

Tried a few locations that would not intrude on driver and passengers (or folded rear seats), yet remained accessable by the driver. The glove box will fit a Kidde 10BC. The driver side door space won't fit a Kidde 10BC completely, but I think modifying would make this locations ideal. I would really like to know if one of the halogen types will fit in the drivers door without modification. The halogens cost over $100, but fire =

Rear Fire Extinguisher:

The right rear deck or right rear door would be ideal for an ABC type, but the extinguisher would intrude on cargo space, and likely be burried under cheetos and whiskey, or ditched due to space requirements. If you don't have the subwoofer, a Kidde 10BC will fit in the right rear storage hideyhole, and/or a FirstAlert 1A10BC will fit on the right rear wheel deck (with magical staps).

On the left rear wheel deck, a Kidde 3A40BC (or larger) will fit fantastically with some sort of custom mount. Guess what I've been working on...

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

If my FJ ever catches fire I'm gonna let it burn. Then I get a new one. Who wants a half-burnt FJ Cruiser anyways?

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

I found this one which may be worth considering

http://www.thefirestore.com/store/product.cfm?pID=3440

I've ordered a number of products from those guys and have found them to be very prompt and reliable.

The one pounder (A,B extinguisher and safe for computers) is 24" x 6.5" -- don't have the vehicle to see where it'll fit. It may be too large for general convenience. The fact it's environmentally safe and ok for computer electronics is a plus in modern vehicles. At US$20 (plush shipping) they're cheap compared to halon but may be too large to be practical. I'm still looking...

I'm a fan of having an extinguisher handy... while not necessarily for vehicle fires only; they can be useful for campsite mishaps or the like. An ounce of prevention that I'm glad to carry

I forgot to include this link from the manufacturer's website (pyrocom) in my earlier post: http://www.pyrocom-spray.com/

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

The Forth picture (Option) looks like the best fit, but it doesn't help us with the Subwoofer option out.

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

I like 4th or 5th as well, for easy access. Glove box would be good, but I use that for so much other storage stuff, the rear seems the best option to me.

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

Has anyone tried to put a fire extinguisher in the suicide door lower holder? I think this is where the concept was showing them stored. I'm looking for a place and think it might work. If you've had any luck, let us know mfg. and dimensions.Thanks

It's not what you do, But how you look doing it!!

Re: Fire Extinguishers in cabin

Here are my two in my '91 4Runner.
They will both be going in the FJ.
I see no reason why the mount for the stianless steel one will not mount in the back, and also the mount for the red one up front on my Husky liner should screw into the Toyota All Weather mats just fine & dandy.
