What is everyone using for fire extinguisher mounts and how do you like them? I have seen a few online but am torn as to which one I would go with. Are the aluminum quick release worth the extra money?

They are worth the money IF you ever need to use it. However, I think the smaller extinguishers are a little too small, so I use the next size bigger. If I was going to use the smaller extinguisher I would probably mount 2 of them for extra protection.

I will have to look at my bottle size later but here is a picture. This is the next size up from the small one that most vendors sell.

Here's a couple of pictures of mine. I made them, but I copied them from pictures off the Internet. I believe someone sells them for about 40 or $50.b

yup that's the other one I was looking at I like its a bag , the other has 3 straps so its a toss up , lol just depends on material quality lol
agreed...Smittybilt has a good rep so I am guessing it is built with good materials. I like that you can take the entire thing off with no tools. Makes it easy when pressure washing etc.....

Dammit, you noticed that bag on the Maverick? It was stitched in white and I vinyl painted black. I guess that wasn't enough!
