Be sure to get the ones that you can get refilled, I hate wasting money!
I use rechargeable Li-ion batteries in my LED flashlight as well
Funny though... I just realized I have NEVER used any of my flares, I probably should exchange them out, but they still look good
Ah... I'll keep um as spares!

I popped-out the cup holder in the jack-cover; a Kidde 5BC fits perfectly. Just need some foam at the bottom to cushion. 2011 Ranger Sport Supercab.

I've been seriously considering putting one in my 94 Supercab. I just don't know what size to get and what class extinguisher to get. If anyone has any input or suggestions, pm me. Thanks

I put this in about two years ago. A couple of friends laughed at me when I shared my idea with them, but they liked it when I got it installed in the truck. I was inspired by the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale.

Got one in all three vehicles. Between the front seats of the CR-V, behind the seat in '98, and mounted in the middle of the back wall in the new Ranger.

I carry jumper cables, recovery straps, tow chains, flares, a first aid kit and a full set of class A fire gear for the purpose of helping others. Dont have a fire extinguisher though.

where the heck is all that smoke coming from
I had an incident with a cheapo lighter when I used to smoke. I was driving my then-leased 04' Ranger 4*4, and it was a sunny (but not overly hot day). I had a lighter on the passenger seat and the sun beating down on the top of the lighter caused it to spark. I was driving bumper-to-bumper in rush hour traffic and even had to pull to the side of the road. I literally had a 3 inch flame of a lighter fire on my seat. I pulled to the side of the road, grabbed the lighter carefully from the bottom, and threw it out of the vehicle, but the damage was already done. I had a three inch by three inch hole that burned through the seat to the foam padding. Luckily, I had the auto protection with the lease that allowed for up to $1500 in damages, and the seat repair was valued at $75.

i'm curious to see how many of you carry a fire extinguisher in your truck? Or jumper cables,flares,cones,and tow cables?
I have a toolbox in my Ranger but a tool set in the wife's Edge (which contains jumper cables and an emergency lantern).
