Depends on what kind of wheeling you plan on doing. If you plan on hitting the OBX they have a checklist of required items. Some of the basics would be a good tow strap, no metal, you can get a cheap one at Wal-Mart for $26.00. A Hi-lift jack with a base, GPS or a GPS App on your smart phone assuming you get a signal, if not have a CB for emergency communication. Always travel with at least one other vehicle, preferably two or three. A good first-aid kit, a sweatshirt and change of socks (or two), sunscreen, bug spray, snacks (power bars), water, mechanic gloves, basic tool kit, a lighter, a knife. A good spotter, good tires, AT's for trail riding, MT's for rocks and mud.

2002 TJ, 3" RCD coil springs, 1" body lift, 32" BFG AT KO's, 15X10 Cragar Soft 8's, Rocky Mount Discos, Skyjacker Nitro 8000's, new Rugged Ridge soft top (VERY LOUD!!!!). PowerAid throttle body spacer, AIRAID CAI, DYNOMAX Super Turbo CATBACK.
