    Have done a few things in the past week, since I got my new Tundra. Added OCD organizer for center console storage and OCD tray. From Salex. IMG_1150.jpg IMG_1151.jpg



    I rigged up an under driver seat fire extinguisher, using Kidde mount, C-channel steel and tabs behind--Plastidipped and placed rubber washers underneath tabs to avoid marring paint. Used ideas from Vizsla's custom mount (I missed his recent offer) and the Bracketeer.

    Most importantly, added the hitch so I can pull the boat--not for a while. Just flipped 300 miles on the odometer.

    Waiting on my bed rubber mat. Then it's time to break it in and watch my son do REAL mods on our 2016 Tacoma TRD OR.

    Can I ask ... why didn't you just buy The Bracketeer and save yourself the trouble?

    Good question! I had to work on call all weekend and I guess I'm too ADD to watch US Open. Thought it would be easier to fit a handmade mount.

    The Bracketeer would have bolted straight onto those seat mount bolts at the front of the seat ... would have given you more flexibility to mount the extinguisher exactly where you wanted it.

    But good for you for making one yourself ... heck ... that's how the business started for me.

    I made one for my Camaro ... shared the design on a forum and people wanted to buy it. That's what inspired me to design the universal bracket.

    In fact ... one of the earliest evolution's of the design was to fit a Tundra. I had a member of this forum buy a very early version of the bracket and it didn't fit ... so with his help I hand made the custom parts to work.

    I then integrated that design into production and because of that it now fits all Toyota's. That change also made it compatible with Mazda, Subaru, Hyundai, Genesis and Scion.

    Ya that’s why I never liked those mounts. Also can’t aim the vent anywhere anymore.
