funny you post this because I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking about picking this up from quadratec but I dont know exactly what size extinguisher this will hold and if the straps would be long enough to go around the padding of my roll bar. Thinking about just picking up a 5lb. from Lowes and strapping it via black zipties sinec I cant find anything better online.

Not wanting to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a fire extinguisher, I bought a two pack of the standard 2.6 Lb Kidde ABC extinguishers from Costco for like $20. I mounted one on each side of the Jeep, right on the roll bar behind the front seats. The little chrome ones are cool and a good size for cars, but there's plenty of room for the standard size units in a Jeep...

what did you use to mount them? velcro of some sort? or zipties?

I just used some long black zip ties to mount the plastic brackets that come with the extinguishers. One at the top of the bracket that goes over the seat belt mounting bolt and another at the bottom of the bracket to hold keep it straight.

In addition to the plastic bracket's strap, I also ran a black nylon strap around the middle of the extinguisher to keep it steady over the bumpy stuff. They've been hanging there for quite a while now and seem to be pretty solid - no rattles and they haven't come down yet

I bought an ABC one from target for like $8. Great size, fits on the rollbar behind the soundbar perfectly.

As for mounting, I used pipe clamps. Worked perfect and I have them just layin around

just got back from lowes... picked up a 2.5 lb and some heavy duty zip ties. Mounted on the pillar behind drivers seat with two of the ties and works/looks great. Total cost - $13.00

I tied the zip ties through the plastic mount. Pretty fast to get the one snap from around the extinguisher. I allready tested, haha.
