Probably would be a good idea with the way the exhaust gets cherry hot..and the occasional I forgot my e-brake on..

About 30% of my friends do. I think it's a very good idea. It's your only defense for any type of fires.

some states require one on board if riding in National or state forests ... also some require a water carring devise aka a bucket [I carry a oilskin foldable one doubles as a watering bucket for my dog] .. also a shovel and ax .... check your states requirements or suffer the consequences of a rookie ranger who has no humor lol

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Great idea, another thing to add. Watched a brand new sled burn down a few yrs. back when a fuel line came off. Less then 75 miles on it. All we could do was throw snow or wish we had hot dogs.

Thumbs up Repeat:Fire Extinguishers

I know this has been brought up before,I was reading a old post flying121 had.AGAIN how many members have fire Extinguishers on there buggys,its not only for your your buggy It could be needed for your passenger in case he cant get out.since I have been on these forums I have seen several utv fires.I also believe a first aid kit is needed,which I also carry,two summers ago had a rear bladder blow,could not even see prowler from the smoke.very lucky no fire.didn't have fire protection either.THE OLDER WE GET THE SMARTER WE NEED TO THINK.

I think the brp commander should come standard with one because they are bad for catching on fire. They are so bad they have been recalled for it. I personal don't have one but I will get one this year for the summer. The wild cat is pretty easy to clean out around the exhaust. I don't do much swamp running anymore.
