    Re: Hi & Help w/ yj wiring

    Just kinda curious. When you go what do you bring? better yet, what would your 'survival tool kit' consist of?

    First aid kit of course. Jug of water, some oil, 3/8 socket set, Torx bits for 3/8 ratchet, open end/box end wrenches, a couple of screwdrivers, some small vise grips, duct tape, electrical tape.....to be honest, I can't remember it all. I've got a little plastic tote box full of my wheeling tools.

    First aid kit here also + fire extinguisher + CB. Oil, various tools (in a set), a couple of wrenches, a knife, a flashlight, gloves, shovel, tape, I'm sure there's a screwdriver in there somewhere.
    I have many addictions.. I mean hobbies!

    I carry a fire extinguisher, CB radio, socket set, knife, duct tape, crazy glue (works great on blown coolant hoses), couple of screwdrivers of each type, roll of wiring, electrical tape, 30 foot tow strap, shovel and a hi-lift. Oh ya, I also sometimes carry my girlfriend so she can push when I get stuck...she says she's my wench in place of a winch.

    If you have no room in your rig, carry a cell phone and the AAA number! hehe

    I too carry a lot of tools, more than I think I will ever need!
    Also, I carry spare rear axle, u-joints, oil, atf, spray lube, belts, 110 inverter, drop light, blanket, grease gun, and so much more!
    It used to be a jeep Thing,
    But all that stuff broke

    Need to get some proper tools in the Jeep, right now, I've my flashlight, jumper cables, couple screwdrivers, partial socket set, some spare wire of various gauges and lengths, duct tape, other odds and ends under the seat... Keep the axe, hatchet, woodpick, shovel, and snow-scraper bungeed in the cargo area...

    Oh yeah, and spare bungees that I got for Christmas, because my mom was getting sick of hearing things slide all over the place when I made a turn... Useful for many applications, really...

    the feeling's forever...
