Recovery gear storage

I'm starting to see that I have a fair amount of money in my recovery gear, straps, tree protector, snatch block, shackles, etc. I was wondering how everyone else keeps/stores their gear to prevent it from being stolen? I'm currently running a soft/no top configuration, and I use the back seat. I have the factory trunk, but that's not very secure. The Tuffy full under seat drawer would fit the bill, but $500 plus.....Anyway, I know there is no free lunch but thought I'd ask what everyone else is doing. Thank you in advance.

I keep everything in a large duffel bag/ backpacking backpack I take in and out at night with me. It's a pain but I would rather keep my stuff safe. Unless you get a tuffy or a locking trunk your stuff will never be safe in a jeep with a soft top.

Around town, only the minimal tools and recovery gear gets carried. Longer distance trips get a few more items, and a week or more off of paved roads gets the whole kit in an ActionPacker.

Agreed, only leave what you are willing to loose in the rig. Take your valuables with you.

Unless I am going on a trail, everything stays locked in the garage. The recovery gear is stored in a back pack.

i also keep all my recovery gear in a bag that stays in the garage. space is limited in the jeep so i don't lug it around with me.

i have a tuffey under seat but its useless because its so short few things fit in it. plus when you need to get something out of it everything needs to come out. stuck in a mud hole its a big pain. just use a bag.

The Bestop trunk is solid steel and is secure. The Tuffy trunk has a locking lid. If it's not sold, here is a full length underseat drawer Tuffy Full Length Underseat Drawer - 03-06 TJ - JeepForum.com

I use a duffle bag (mastercraft walker evans bag). It holds most of the smaller spare parts and all of my tools, bottle jack. The only things not in the bag are the larger spare parts that are strapped to the tub.

but in a rollover the duffle bag itself becomes a hazard, so I strap that down too.

inside of the duffle bag I have smaller tool bags to keep them organized.

I only put the duffle bag in the jeep when I take it out to go four wheeling, which is only a few times a year lately
