First Mod - Fire Extinguisher Mount

Hey guys. I just wanted to show you the first mod I did to my new Cherokee today. Its not much but Im pretty proud of it It is just a basic fire extinguisher mounted in the right rear interior panel.


a little 2 pounder with the stock bracket



First started off by taking the rear panel off. I couldnt take it completely off because of the seat belt.


When I got the panel semi out of the way, I found some rust starting, so I hit it with some tremclad rust inhibiting primer.



I taped the bracket where I wanted it it to be and marked the holes. For mounting, I used 4: 1/4 inch bolts, 4: 1/4 inch nylock nuts with 4 washers.


I peeled back the insulation and drilled the holes out with a 17/64 drill bit and mounted the bracket.


And here she is all mounted up. I plan on mounting brackets for a MagLite to the right of it later on.

Looks really good man! Nice choice on the size. I really need to put one in the same spot.

And because I like pictures. Remember safety first...
