What do you take with you

This is my first jeep. I have a 2001 wrangler se pretty much stock except with BFG 31" all terrain tires. I am wondering what i should stock in the jeep to trail ride. I know a spare tire and jack is obvious. I have a warn 8000 lb winch and straps. But what should I carry if i am going to find logging trails to go down. Thank you for your input

Recovery gear. Get what you think you will need and then double the list. Tire patch kit and some kind of on board air or c02 tank to reinflate. For some reason I always get a flat on the logging trails. Have fun and take another wrangler to help you get unstuck.

Lots of straps and chain . A shovel, axe or a pulaski is what I like. Fire extinguisher. Doritos, pepsi and 2 packs of smokes just in case I end up walking out...

Don't forget plenty of water and a form of communication.

Put together a simple tool kit with some basic tools and some other goodies such as zip ties, wire, etc., and whatever else you can think of that would make a world of difference if you had it handy or not. The object is at least to safely make it back from the trail to civilization so you can then get towed if needed.

I've personally had to do a couple of trail fixes - crimp a broken brake line with a pliers so I'd have at least three wheels with brakes instead of none, pound a steel rim with a hammer because the lip bent and was leaking air, I also extinguished a fire that started underneath my friend's truck while he was stuck.

A common thing to do is grab an ammo can or 2 and throw all your wheelin junk in those, it keeps my trunk all nice and neat.
