Finding the best fire extinguishers for your off-road vehicle is key to making sure you and your co-pilot are safe when you are out exploring off the beaten path.

In the world of off-road adventure, it always pays to be prepared for any situation that might come your way — including the dreaded possibility of a vehicle fire. Vehicle fires can start for a multitude of different reasons, and they all end with extremely undesirable results. Not only can a vehicle fire injure you and others, destroy your property, and leave you stranded — but in the wrong off-road setting, they could also trigger a dangerous forest fire.

Below, we’ll look at some of the best fire extinguishers for off-roaders. A few bucks spent on a quality off road fire extinguisher is, after all, money well spent on protecting your investment and your safety.

Our top pick for the professional goes to this well-rated Jeep fire extinguisher from H3R. The H3R Performance HG250B Fire Extinguisher comes with twice the size and fire-stopping power of smaller units, so you’re less likely to be outgunned by a challenging or rapidly spreading fire. The chemical formulation leaves no mess or damage if discharge occurs within a vehicle. It also prevents thermal shock to vehicle electronics, and an all-metal valve is featured for minimal maintenance and a long service life.

The H3R Performance HG250B Fire Extinguisher is EPA approved, and ships with a mounting bracket that includes a keyed bracket that helps eliminate the possibility of rotation and accidental discharge. Owner reviews clock in at 5 stars, helping add further appeal. Just note that the black color may limit visibility and ease of retrieval of this high-end fire extinguisher in certain situations.
