Re: What happened with the fire??

Re: Fire extinguisher Bracket.

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.

Re: Fire extinguisher Bracket.

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...
