Fire extinguisher Bracket.
 
Is there a part no for a fire extinguisher bracket to locate a fire extinguisher in the WK,and a reccommended location in the WK? I know this is more an offroad orientated question but all my previous vehicles have had Extinguishers fitted.

Make sure your getting the right type of extinguisher when you get these, you want a dry chem. can for vehicle fires

I put an extinguisher is the right reaar webbing indent holder. I used a bungie cord to give it added security. This is not the best place to put it but until I figure a better non destructive mounting bracket location it will do.

this may sound stupid but, what do you need a extinguisher in your vehicle for?!

You need the extinguisher in your vehicle for the poor driver who's vehicle caught fire on the side of the highway. Hopefully you will never need it to put out a fire in your own rig. As an ex boy scout many years ago I sill remember the motto, "Be Prepared". :)

You can easily use a couple of quickfist clamps to mount one. I have a maglite mounted on the panel that sits right below the left rear window, very clean looking and secure. I plan on adding a fire extinguisher to the right side at some point using some quickfists as well.

Truck came with extinguisher installed by dealer, underneath passenger seat. They mounted a bracket that uses the seat bolts there ...

You said "truck" came from dealer. Do you mean a Grand Cherokee or some other truck. If its a jeep G.C. does it get in the way of the passenger's feet ? Thanks in advance.

"Truck" as in JGC Overland WK 2009. Its kinda tucked in beneath the seat but if you move the passenger seat back then the extinguisher becomes 'exposed' bracket brace does sometimes catch on wife's heels :/ . My qife is shorter than me so moves seat forwards:)

Having said that its not a large extinguisher Worth the inconvenience knowing extra safety measures. I think by law here in the UAE all new cars must be fitted with them as standard.

Can take some pics for you tomorrow if required.

Wow, I wonder how hard it is to get parts, service, etc. in the UAE. What do you do for a living there. Some time ago I had an invitation to work for an oil company in Saudi Arabia. After looking in to the living restrictions I opted to not go.
