Yeah, Jeepn my trail box looks just about like yours. I know I carry too much stuff with me. However I know that if I need something my buddies have it and if they need something I have it so we are all covered.

Oh, and my 2 rolls of shop towels can double as TP if needed. They are truly the quicker picker upper.
