    I really like the Element but I can't find any info about getting them wet. I don't have a top on my Blazer so, for me, it would need to be able to handle some rain / mud.

    I took out the 2 screw preventing the back seat from flipping forward now my sit flips forward. Since I have to push it all the way back anyway, its not a concern no longer having those 2 extra screws in the seat. So the extinguisher drops right behind the drivers seat and without flipping any levers I can flip the back seat forward and it exposes the fire extinguisher.

    I have temporarily homemade a center console to fit between my buckets and have mine mounted behind it. Held in place with a heavy bungee cord and is instantly accessible. It's a biggun too.......10 lbs. IIRC!

    I'm calling bullshit. Only because I didn't see it put out a fire. Show me that and I'll buy it.

    Isn't that the same thing they use for chimney fires?

    I would think it only works well in a closed space or at least if it's not windy.

    I mounted mine outside, which is just where I'd want to be if there's a fire. :Big Laugh:
