How do you store your gear?

Hey guys, just curious on how you store/strap down your off road gear in your jeep. Straps, pulleys, shovels... Etc. Pictures are best.

Also, looking at tow straps and tree savers right now to go with the 12k Engo winch I ordered. Ill eventually get into synthetic line, but for now what's some good gloves and what length and thickness tow strap is best?

I keep my tow strap wrapped on my tow hooks and my hi lift on the hood. It works great!

That idea of tow straps on the bumper is awesome, I'm sure I won't be able to with mine.. Do you always keep it there?

I'll grab some pics this weekend when I'm ready for the forest fest. Harbor freight had a bunch of perfect bags for my stuff. I have a larger one for my recovery stuff, machete, shovel, straps, rings, snatch block, etc. A smaller bag for winch controls, gloves, misc hard parts like tie rod ends, etc. And another for plenty of hand tools. Hold em down in the back with a couple of ancra tie downs next to the ice chest. Has worked great for me and at the end of the trip, I pull the bags and set em aside in the garage for next time. No hassles or strewn out gear.

I have everything stored in 2 ammo cans. they store easy in the barn, and just throw them in the back when ready to hit the trails. I also, have one of those rugged ridge tool boxes that looks like a jerry can. I keep a set of tools for the trail in it and it mounts on my jerry can rack.

For daily driver stuff, I keep it bagged:





It's roomier than it appears....and currently holds my 30' recovery strap, hitch accessories, jumper cables, portable air compressor, tools, first aid kit, and a bunch of other random items. It's made from pretty tough material and is easy to move around / take out.

I think it is this one:

My fire extinguisher is securely strapped to the roll cage. I am not a fan of leaving things loose. We had a medic in my fire department killed in an ambulance rollover several years ago...when a loose O2 cylinder hit him in the head...so that's now how I look at anything loose in my jeep - how will this feel when it hits me in the head?

I guess you are talking about the jerry can tool box. It is not the best quality, but holds quite a bit, and doesn't fall apart on the trail, so I am happy with it. It is nice being able to strap it into the rack and forget it until you need it.

Uv will damage the material over time and when it fades it could be a sign that its no longer strong enough. I also paid a lot for my straps and would be concerned abiut theft.

Purchased: 30' recovery, tree saver, gloves, d rings, air down gauge, and I have a portable compressor already. Also found a durable canvas bag to store it in like you did

I use some military ammo bags I got at a surplus store to keep my straps together. For gloves, I use these and love them. Amazon.com: Mechanix Wear CG30-75-010 Commercial Grade Impact Protection Glove, Black, Large: Home Improvement They are thin enough to still use your fingers with some precision. I do worry about metal strands from the cable poking through, but it hasn't happened yet. I also have a thick leather pair of garden gloves, but rarely use them.
