Camping Gear

This is mainly directed towards the bare bones tent campers. With the limited space in the jeep what's on your list of gear packed? Minus tools

My tenting gear is a bit on the large size. You may want to look at backpacking gear if you want minimal.

Well my gear includes a storage bin for food and cooking. Two standard sized tool bags with a saw, an axe, toilet paper, dry bags, etc. Two chairs. My tent. Tools spare parts and fluids. Tow strap bolt cutters.

Im just interested in what makes your gear unique

You might want to think about bringing some extra rope. Ya know, just in case.

Hammock
Hammock tarp once I find one reasonably priced
2 man backpacking tent
Extra tarp
Paracord, paracord everywhere
Ground pad
20F bag
Fleece liner
Backpacking stove
Mess kit
Pop up chair if i have room

That's all I can think of. When the back seat is out I had a lot of extra room with that stuff packed, tools, and a cooler. Had enough room for at least another person and their stuff.

Most of my gear is lower-weight (but not ultralight) backpacking gear. Space has never been an issue, and I usually carry enough extras to share if needed. Not visible in the picture (soft top is in the way) is the shelf I built to keep the gear in its proper place. 4 Action Packers fit underneath, two Contico totes + cooler fit on top, and chairs get set on top of that. Gear underneath is a friction-fit by design, gear on top gets 2 ratchet straps to keep it immobile.

Minimal load-out:
-2-man tent + Hammock if traveling with wife, hammock + cot if traveling solo (good to have sleeping options!).
-chairs
-sleeping bag + foam pad
-Tarps (Kelty Noah's Tarp 16 + a couple cheap-o tarps)
-Ropes of various sorts
-Coleman 533 Dual Fuel stove + cookware
-Ax, bow saw, hand saw, machete
-Anti-mosquito sticks
-Cooler+food
-Parts/tools/fluids
