Since I first heard of this NoPar recall, and because our new truck is a 'close relative' of the Durango family (Dakota R/T), I have started packing a fire extinguisher under the drivers bucket seat. .....hay, YA NEVER KNOW!!!!

great. I have smelled something similar to anti freeze when I use my air. It's not all the time, but it is there.

Hey, whats ONE more recall for a major issue. I have already had my lower ball joints replaced on Jeeps dime.. and at 5000 miles too!

Here is Fred taking advantage of the flaw. He just cooked his burger..

You've reminded me that I intended to put fire extinguishers in front seat and on side of canopy/topper by the hatch -- Had them there on my last truck, never needed them but they were there if I did -- I expected that it would be more likely that I'd need them on someone's else's problem, but YA NEVER KNOW!!!!

Driving old vehicles and with my luck, I have alway kept a fire extinguisher nearby. When needed, I could not find it and ran into a nearby apartment building to put out my car cost me $50 but I saved the car and a call to the FD.

Dakota

My truck on the other hand, sorry for the quality, photos came out dark but you can see this after photo with the extinguisher still mounted in the window. This is where the new one still is, the original one lost its charge due to the heat. The insurance adjuster thought it was funny that I carry one with me and it was in the photos sent with my initial claim (photos were not required, was just on the phone setting up an appraisal time and gave him the directory with the photos, he was also surprised with seeing the during photos, he rarely gets those, just wished they turned out better but did not want to use the flash while they were putting out the fire). VW Jetta was the cause of my fire damage. I am also been waiting for the day someone does the "break glass in case of emergency" for it.

A new fire extinguisher is also the first item purchased for the scamp rebuild.
