Re: Why to carry a fire ext in your rig!!!!!!

Good thing you caught it in time.
This may also be a good time to remind everyone of the importance of taking the fire extinguisher out of the jeep several times a year and making sure that the powder hasn't solidified in it. This occurs because the constant vibration of the jeep tends to pack the powder into a lump in the bottom making it useless. I take mine out 3-4 times a year and kinda whack on it with a rubber mallet and then shake the crap outta it. Nothing worse than a fire and an extinguisher that blows nothing but air. As cheap as extinguishers are, I'd consider replacing it if there is any question at all about it's functionality.
