Just my 2 cents......get a AAA card....a cell phone....unless you really go far then get a Satellite Phone. Leave the tools home.

My friend mounted an ammo can on his YJ's front bumper.

As a field service technician, I can tell you, that even with an 8 compartment Summit Service body on a C5500, maxed out to 20k#, there will always be a time when you are staring at something that needs a fixin' and you say to no one in particular..."I need a tool."

Even the military, in their efforts to consolidate and simplify, the tool pack for the vehicles is 80#.

I have the instatrunk in mine and it is full with a tool bag, tool box, receiver shackle, tow strap, and anything else I may need should something happen. Just last week my shift linkage bushing came out and I put it back in and zip tied, while sitting in the parking lot at work. Every wrench I have ever had to use has then been put in the Jeep tool box.

If there are others that have done the same thing maybe they could post their tips and tricks. This sounds like a neat idea.

I've heard some say that it depends on the size of your engine.
I had this open space there on my 2.4

Yes chains, they can take care of problems that a ratchet strap cannot. We had a broken track bar bracket on the trail last weekend up in Big Bear and it took holding it in place with a chain so he could drive to get it welded. A strap would not have, at least I don't believe it would have, held together during the drive to get it repaired.

If you think AAA will come and get you when you're wheelin' you're 100% right: If you're on roads (as verses trails) and aren't in the middle of nowhere where there's no cell phone reception. Good luck with that.
