    how is this while off roading?

    i would imagine the weight at the top of the seat would shimmy and shake you dang near to death.

    Used it plenty Offroad on other vehicles in the past. On my 3rd gen, it actually makes the seat headrest MORE steady and eliminates the rattle that many folks experience. It’s rock solid and there’s no shifting, shaking, looseness, rattle, or vibration to be had. Weight total I imagine is somewhere around 5lbs including the hardware and mounts. I honestly don’t even feel it behind me. If it were a larger extinguisher, your concerns would probably exist. It wouldn’t be my first mounting choice if I were going to hoon my truck through the desert at 60mph, but it’s perfect for typical slow AZ offroading and crawling. And also see results in post on how it held up in a severe accident I was in.

    Trauma kit pouch got in. Now I just need to properly build it. A great feature is that it’s completely rip-away with the Velcro back on it, meaning I can just grab the handle and go. Will also attach to any standard molle bag, and it’s a great supplement to my personal first aid kit in my hiking pack. Looks small, but it’s more than adequate for everything going in it. Still working on that list and will post it once my kit is complete.

    Feeling good - picked up a fire extinguisher today at Lowes and put it in the truck.

    What sealed the deal - on the way to Lowes for yard stuff, full size truck in front of me blew a radiator hose and "appeared" to be on fire.

    How's the kit build coming along? This is a direction I'd like to go in as it would be a valuable asset to have for both work and play.

    Hey sorry just saw this now. I think I’m mostly complete. My truck trauma kit along with my hiking pack has enough items that I’m comfortable with. I may add a small homemade backboard and implement it into a folding table top when not needed for emergencies. Otherwise I’ve also added hyfin chest seals since I’m around firearms regularly, as well as more quickclot gauze. My kit also includes:

    Sawyer sting and bite kit
    Regular gauze
    Surgical shears
    Surgical tape
    Multiple bandages
    Moleskin
    Israeli bandages
    Swathes and bandanas
    Ceralyte electrolyte pouches
    Tourniquet
    SAM splint
    Mini sharpie
    Nasal pharyngeal airway
    Disposable Surgical gloves
    Goggles with black out inserts for eye injuries
    CPR mask
    Weatherproof notepad
    Epi-pen
    Gu packets and honey sticks for diabetics
    Topical iodine
    Alcohol pads
    Small trash bag for haz waste

    I’m sure I’m missing something but that’s basically it. I also now have a HAM radio and about to get a Garmin inreach, so that I can hopefully leave the lifesaving to the people who get paid for it haha.
