Jeep Boom

After owning my share of hot rods and custom cars, I can tell you that one very important piece of equipment that is always required is a simple fire extinguisher. Custom built cars are far more likely to go up in flames then a factory built production piece. Shoddy wiring, failed grounds, fuel leaks as well as a host of other problems can lead to catastrophe. If you’re prepared however mishaps can be avoided. The guys in this custom built off-roader are a perfect example. They’re obviously participating in some sort of hill climb and are doing fairly well until their engine takes a dump. Soon afterward a small fire brakes out, then a loud pop and then KABOOM! That sucker goes up in smoke and almost takes the co-driver with it. If they would’ve had a bolt-in extinguisher however, this whole mess could have been avoided. Oh well… maybe next time.

    Thankfully someone had the forethought to put that burm back there. Lots of bystanders and vehicles behing it! My Jeep has two fire extinguishers, one on each side.

    Not sure exactly what country they are in but having been in the UAE for the last three weeks, driving on the highway and side streets, these people do not think of safety the same way we do.
