Trail equipment for a barely modded Jeep
 
Going to do a little wheeling this weekend. Here's the deal: Besides a lift and 35s, we got a bone stock YJ. No lockers, no winch, nothing. But, we are going for it anyway. I'm going to gather up some essentials for the trip. Here's what I have so far:

Tow strap
High-lift jack
small shovel

We'll be trailering there and back, so all we'll need to do is get it back to the trailer. Besides a winch and lockers, what are the trail essentials that I need to get?

An air compressor and fire extinguisher would also be good to have.

A first aid kit for sure x2 on the fire extinguisher too

The beer is a given. And I'm sure there will be other jeeps around. I'll definitely get a fire extinguisher, some tools, WD40, baling wire, and some JB weld. Surely we could limp back to the trailer with that stuff

My last trip needed a high-lift, first aid kit and some with more knowledge than me. Thankfully there are plenty of friendly Jeepers.

only requirement not mentioned is: a good set of tires.

We got some barely worn 35 inch Cooper stt's aired down to 15psi. We are headed out in the morning. We had a pretty sweet moment in the shop last night. We worked on some trailer wiring and now have a trailer that has ALL the lights working CORRECTLY. It's a dang miracle for us. So we have the Jeep loaded up and will be heading out tomorrow. I'll hopefully have some good pics for y'all tomorrow night. I went ahead and loaded it on the trailer without ramps just to get warmed up.

A miracle just to get the trailer lights to work. Sounds like a funniest home video shot coming up on this trip

Good recovery points on front and rear.
