Whether you are carrying cargo or not, you should be carrying some sort of fire extinguisher product like Assault’s Quick Release Kit. However an interesting product we discovered lately, highly used in the RV industry, can detect and extinguish a fire automatically and quicker than you can.
Called, ProTeng, the tube can be wrapped and routed above your engine, turbo and exhaust, below the bed and zip tied in place. A smaller tube can be used near the battery, fuel tank or larger electrical components.
In the event of fire and heat above 300-degrees, the tube melts and in a small explosion, releases a FM 200 gas to instantly extinguish the nearby flames. Prices are $99 for the smaller size and $499 for the six footer. Contact (561) PRO-TENG or www.proteng.com
