I don't carry and extinguisher becuase i think if my car catches on fire once its probably going to do it again so i would let it burn and collect the insurance.

I have one in the truck as well. While I've done a lot of work fixing things including the wiring, it is a 12 year old truck that has been used an abused by it's former owner. I have a first aid kit and an emergency road side kit in it as well.

I still need a fire extinguisher for my other ride.

I carry a decent size extinguisher in mine. I have insurance on it if it does spark, but i'd still rather have one then not have one. It might not be just a vehicle fire, could be grass or anything. I got more stuff in my truck than McGyver.

Something everyone should have. And word of advice for everyone from past unfortunate experience...

MAKE SURE THE PIN IS IN AND SECURE.

Trust me on this one. You do NOT want to find out the hard way it is not.

No. I don't either. Last time I used it, I still haven't replaced it. Its like mechanics that have the worst cars. Before I moved, my old department issued me a full BLS jump bag and AED so I always had that. Now that you mention it, I haven't put anything else in the truck to replace it now that my current department doesn't do that.

I have one but you need to be careful on real hot days with the windows rolled up. It is possible to get up to a couple hundred degrees and it could explode.
