The fire extingisher for the M151A2 depended upon what was available
through the supply channels. In my experience with a Cavalry Troop in
Germany and with the National Guard in the States, I have seen a variety
of extingishers used. Most of them looked very much like the
extingisher you would find at your friendly neighborhood auto parts
store. I don't recall having the extingisher mounted for fear of theft,
rather it was carried in the tool compartment or in a field box in the
back of the jeep. Myself I carried a footlocker that was stocked with
spares, radio spares, tools, toilet paper, pens, paper, and anything
else that I had found a need for in the field. It was easy to put in
the jeep and easy to remove once back in the motor pool. Another
modification was a 50 cal ammo box with speakers and an am/fm cassette
player that found its home between the front seats, but then that one is
not in the Field Manual.
