Elkie is a good one to go with. It's what we have on both our sticks.

Elkie - Elkhart
what model?
The blitzfire by TFT is the best one that I have seen and used.
X-Stream

I had to go look haha
Well Mitch, take a look at this, no nozzle yet and no idea what brand or how good it works, but Alexis has out several with no bad reports and it's around 10 grand. Tell Darrell I said hi...

Mitch:

I have used them and put them on. I personally like the elkhart with the joy stick. the toggles are cheaper but they will preform the same job. Mounting , You really need to know your terrain, I have had a few people bring them back because I put it where they wanted it and they drove through a ditch or hit a deer and smashed it in. My advice is put it on the top right behind the lightbar off to the drivers side. I would definatly go with the elkhart they seem to not have as many problems with them. The hook up on them is very easy aswell. There is only mounting and piping for you to worry about the electronics are in one big master wire. BUT, be sure you have a backup valve to shut it off and a drain valve on the line.
THE AKRON FIRE FOX, MODEL #3463 WITH THE 3293 NOZZLE. HAS PERFORMED AWSOME FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS AND GETS USED ON A REGULAR BASIS. WE AVERAGE 100+ WOODS FIRES A YEAR
I don't know if your question has been answered yet, but my department is pretty fond of the TFT Typhoon monitors with a Master Stream 1500 attached. Here's a link to a video about it.

Check this out.

Hope this helps!
Wish we had one on our Tender, might be nice for grass fires. That being said as in Investigator I hate the things :) Don't know how many fires I've been asked to help investigate only to find the point of origin blown away from the remote monitor.
