Equipment you carry in your Jeep?

Hello -- I'm totally new to the Jeep and off-road scene and just picked one up last night. I'm curious what you guys take with you in the back of your Jeep when either going to the middle of nowhere on of off-road.

I live in Colorado and already am used to taking some things with me when I go into the mountains:

Extra clothes, fold up snow shovel, fire starters, flash light, water, air pump

I plan on carrying these same things but I'm thinking there is more you would want for an off-road journey --

Thanks

It always varies depending on the length of stay/No. of vehicles/terrain, but

Here's part ofit tools/without power tools



Recovery gear/without winchs



Don't forget your 48" HiLift jack/acc-

That'll get you out the door, just don't go to far from town ALONE !

JIMBOX, After you load all of your STUFF into your Jeep, you must look funny riding on the roof! I know I have kidded you before but you are one prepared Boy Scout, that's for sure. Good man!

NOPE, sorry--google "Jeep off-road equipt-required"-

Lists are too long, too many items-other guys usually add to these posts-

Basic, besides what I've pic'd--bailing wire/tire plugs/Duct tape/Cell phone/CB radio/and for far away spots GPS and/or SPOT satellite comm.(Very far away)-

Good luck

JIMBO

Probably going to get a personal locator beacon also, I was already going to get one since I usually hike and backpack in the middle of nowhere, those things work anywhere and everywhere and don't rely on satellites

I would recommend tow straps without the hooks on the end....those are an accident waiting to happen.

Remember I said, it depends on how long your trip is one day/two days/wek/two week and I have bags and "Task Force" containers, depending on how long we're gonna be out--

Long time--



Overheard-all the time-



Short time



I also have a TomTom/Toughbook laptop and a trailer--There's not many places I can't go--for anytime !

Dang tootin! I have seen novice off-roaders pull these hooked straps out and folks almost beat them to death over it. Jeeps need at least a 2 " 20,000 looped quality strap and if there is a pick-up truck involved in any way, they need a 3" 30,000 strap. H-1 Hummers and Unimogs need a 4" 40,000 strap. I have a 20' chain with hooks also, but I go with the strap first.

I witnessed a Dodge 3/4 ton pick-up try to snatch out a mud-stuck YJ on Matagorda beach in Texas one time and folks were crowed all around. I backed off about 75 feet, as warning them did not a bit of good and the strap snapped and caved in the tail-gate on the truck. It sounded like a rifle shot and almost as fast.

We finally got the idiot out, yes idiot, and he promptly tried it again and got stuck a second time. The same day a guy drove a 2 week old Ford mini-truck too far out after I warned the group (I was leading it) and he got stuck in the silt. There was no way to extract him, as we had nothing to anchor to, and 6 hours later, the Gulf of Mexico took his truck.

Extractions. I've had my share of people doing the stupidest things.

Not to high-jack the thread, but my years with my club: TX4X4 Cyber Club, I could write a book on how not to extract a vehicle. I think I've seen every example of "Ol' Blue will git er out!"

btb is right about hooks-used the wrong way, but there are a lotta instances when the hook/chains can be real handy--did you ever TRUSS an axle ??-easy with hook chain-

I have a D35 rear and LIKE it. But at the bottom of my pile is a rebuilt rear axle. I figure it's the weak link, but it's an easy under an hour trail fix.

We had both

One of the great things about CO is you can pretty much just shoot anywhere on federal land, 100 yds away from a road

I've gotta pretty wide range of atleast 25,000 sqmiles(15 minutes), open BLM range, just have to watchout for Mustangs !





They're to hard to barbeque !

Now I don't hunt anymore, so I only take my 1911 off-road, no rifles !

Not to re-highjack the thread... LOL But you can't go ten feet in Texas without crossing private property.

Pull-Pals. Great beach accessory, but who can afford these fricken things? It amazes me how many people I've seen on the trail who do not even own a strap...But they gots them big Ol tares!
