    Recovery bag items

    I need to cut down on clutter in my trunk but carry my recovery bags all the time bc you just never know. Haha. What are the main items needed to have in the recovery bag? I have axle chains a couple short lengths of chain a 3 tow straps jumper cables winch cable gloves rear hitch shackle snatch block. Anything I can leave out do to lost people carrying them? Or anything I should put into it? I have everything in 2 bags.

    .... but you need to be where there is cell phone reception! Doesn't help much if no signal

    Jumper cables only work if you have a battery to jump to.

    I carry one of those Li-On jump starters, DBPower 18,000 mWh. Amazon for $69.99.

    Batteries often go without warning....you shut down to go look at a vista and come back to a click....click.....click when turning the ignition. That's a big problem 25 miles in an 15 miles from cell service.

    That is the bonus to driving a stick. Get her rolling a little bit and pop the clutches.

    .... and a finely made Oregon built... Leatherman.
    Quick fixes are so named for how long they stay fixed.
    If you run out of gas, no matter which way you decide to push, the closest gas station will always be uphill and in the other direction. Corollary: The likelihood of running out increases when all of the nearby gas stations are closed.
    The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep.
    We cannot accurately judge the trajectory of a speeding critter (cat, dog, sasquatch).
