What are some good small/cheap jeeps accessories.

These accessories are just off the wall items that you wouldn't think to keep around.

Grab handles, I like the big mag light flash lights and under seat holder, duct tape, paper towels/towel for spills, and a set of gloves for any under the hood work/tire changes.

I've got an old YJ, I've found a can of WD40 helps, everytime I find out what else maybe squeeking, I give it a spray. I also have a can of fix a flat, some power bars, and a bottle of water in case I get stuck somewhere.

I also have dogs, so I have an extra roll of dog waste bags and an extra leash.

Spinner hub caps!... Not rims, hubcaps... Yea that would be wicked. I mean, you don't wannabe the only guy without them.

Seriously though. A good snatchrope with NO metal hooks, machete, small shovel, stuff to help you get out of a jam. I carry enough food and water to be comfortable for 3 days and a GO bag that I can live pretty indefinitely out of if I have to. Use your imagination and tailor it to your situation. Where do you live, urban rural, snowy winters, etc...???

I live in a fairly rural area plenty of trails. Just trying to get an idea of what I should leave in my Jeep in emergency or just handy in various situations.

Uh.... actually I don't know if the guy was bs'n or not but that is excellent advice! As a prepper I study this stuff, the sunflower seedis nearly the perfect emergency ration. It contains sugar and fat, and is a natural appetite suppesent. Use caution with the salted ones though, they can dehydrate you or make you thirsty and thus you need more water. I personally carry evoo and cashews.

Road flares and a high-vis traffic safety vest. Gloves of course, an American-made set of capable tools, and I can't believe nobody said a BFH! A stash of various sizes of zip-lock bags are always useful. At least one gallon of potable water (crystal geyser is my fav because the bottle is square-ish). Two to three silver eagles and at least $100 cash in small denominations. Clif bars or a couple MRE's. Really depends on what you want to prepare yourself for. If you drive to work in this vehicle, and wear formal footwear, I'd also suggest throwing a pair of comfortable hiking boots in there...in case you have to walk home.

If that was the case, I'd be adding my M1A, two shotguns and a .22. Hehe.

Also just remembered a headlamp is more useful than a maglite if your work requires two hands. And toilet paper if you're out in poison ivy country.

I keep an axe in mine. I hit WMA/FS/NPS lands often (trout fishing is fun!. More than once I've driven in to find my exit out blocked by down tree. And, a few times i chopped trees blocking roads just to be nice.

Also carry a shovel - not had to use it...yet... but read a story once about a guy who used a frying pan to dig under a big big poplar tree to get enough clearance to winch his truck under to get out.

I also keep first aid kit, air compressor, tire repair kit, tools (including gerber/knife), toilet seat covers (hey! some people are nasty in those camp ground restrooms!), extra fluids (oil, trans,etc), hand sanitizer (again, some people are nasty), crystalized ginger (helps with tummy issues .. ie car sick ) . I also keep my maps (WMA specific, atlas and gazeteer).

I also added a cheap clip on mirror to my passenger visor in my 08.. what can I say, the ladies like to look at themselves!

basically I keep any type of fluid or tool that could get me out of the wilderness in the even of a breakdown.

I'll pack water/food the days I head out, I don't keep that full time in my jeep.

Axe: Harbor Freight!
Shovel: Military surplus or Harbor Freight depending on size you want. I'd just get a small fold up one.
BFH... Harbor Freight! We carry a deadblow and a regular ole hammer.
Med kit: Gun show, There's a lady there that has everything.

I'd worry less about the axe though. We have never used ours .

Oh ya make sure you buy them with the fiberglass handle. The wood ones suck after a while I had to Line-X mine.
