Yeah haha.
That heater does an impressive job.
The potatoes I had were the Garlic mashed potatoes, don't think those were the same ones you had. I'd still eat it with enough hot sauce... Seems like hot sauce is the cure for everything.

Trying to remember what else I had. Oh the Chili Mac was pretty good.

The Veg Penne was decent, think it was the Penne dish that was veg. Beef patty kinda sucked, reminded me of McDonalds.

dadrunamok In DD mode, I have a set of "dog bone" wrenches in the back that are always in the Jeep. I always have a Leatherman tool on my keyring. Beyond that, I have a snatch strap, a tree strap, a tow chain and a set of jumper cables. D-rings for the winch are on the bumper.

If I'm wheeling, I throw my toolbox in the back. It contains sockets and box-end wrenches as well as screwdrivers, torx drivers, allen wrenches, pliers, etc.
I had to buy a couple of missing sockets and wrenches (the 18mm and 21 mm were not included with my sets for some reason, but are necessary for JK suspension bolts). I also throw in first aid kits for myself and my tires.

Granted, there's a bunch of them that are still trash, but overall, not terrible.

Realistically this is all you need for a, "mostly daily driver." But I would still carry the most basic stuff like flashlights, blades, small shovels, etc.

+1. What kind of repairs do you expect to do on the side of the trail or road? I used to carry all kinds of tools with me but after awhile I realized I never used them. If it is a mostly a daily driver I would not worry too much about it. All I carry anymore is a multitool and a flashlight. A long time ago I helped a friend replace a head gasket on a shovel head on the side of the road. I am way too old for that stuff anymore.

Basic Toolkit - Suggestions?

What do you recommend for a basic tool kit to keep in the back of the JKUR? Mostly a daily driver but occasional off road. I assume jumper cables, tow strap, hi lift jack.

But what else?

Thanks.
