Ok so I didnt take a lot of picutres... it takes all of maybe 5 minutes to do.
Steps:
1. Purchase a fire extiguisher that comes with a plastic mounting bracket (got mine from Home Depot)
2. Look at the mount, there should be atleast 2 holes for screws to go through. Go find 2 small bolts and nuts that will fit through it (dont have to be very long)
3. Go to your driver seat and use the height adjust lever to jack the seat all the way up. Look at the side of the bracket that the seats mounts on. There should be one hole about center of the bracket. Hold the Extinguisher mount up and line up one hole on the mount with the hole on the backet.
4. Mark on the seat bracket where you need to drill the other hole for the mount.
5. Using a simple batter drill, drill your hole. Make sure its big enough for the bolts you bought to fit through.
6. Now bolts on the mount

In this picture, the bolt nearest goes into the exisiting hole on the seat bracket and i had to drill a small hole for the bolt at the top


7. Now just put the fire extinguisher on and your good to go. You might have to pull the lever up once or twice if you sit with the seat all the way down to adjust the seat height so it sits better.




Word to the wise. Put an extra velcro strap on the extinguisher to make sure if some brakes it wont come tumbling out on a trail

nice mod - just curious what is the temp range for the fire extinguisher? Meaning. I don't want to come out from work in July and see an exploded extinguisher in my jeep since it was like 100 degree's outside

Since fire extinguishers are highly pressurized they have a pressure relief valve on them. So all that an exploding one would do is make a mighty mess, but it shouldn't actually break anything. I've never had one go off in a vehicle, so you should be plenty safe. This useage is so common that they are designed for it and are safe well past tempratures that you would be comfortabe at in your jeep.

That question made me curious since I live in Arizona and have carried a fire extinguisher in my rigs for years without incident.

Only information I found said 122 degrees, which, during an Arizona summer, if the rig was closed up, that temperature would be easily exceeded. Going to have to investigate further,

Nice install, I'm looking to do the same thing, thanks for the idea!!:D
