Re: fire extinguisher mount
I get the "ABC" ones from Wal-Mart for <$20 each. They have one made by kiddie that is for automotive....means nothing besides they give you a bracket. But that bracket is handy. I have installed one between the door opening and seat bracket for easy access. I had one in my YJ installed where your's was(on the roll bar). One day, I thought I was going to burn my Jeep up trying to get to the single fire extingusher. I had my hard top on and my seat was in the way. Luckily it was just a small short and by the time I went to the other side and got to it form the passenger side(had to find my keys, unlock the door, crawl in and reach over), it had already burned the wire into. I learned my lesson. First thing I did to my CJ was put in fire extingushers....where you can reach them easily from the door opening. But if that is the only place you will put them, one had to get to is better than none.
Thanks for the tip on the "shake-up", never thought of that. It will be added to my routine maintence checklist. Would doing it with regularly scheduled oil changes be sufficient? My oil gets changed like clockwork every 3 months, usually about 500 miles.
