If you were traveling down a dark road and...
 
your Jeep became stuck or disabled, what 5-10 things would you like to have in a recovery bag?

If the beer runs out and you are stranded on a dark road...you are obviously way too far from civilization to be going it alone.

2. 700 Winmag
3. Beef jerky
4. Half trunk worth of ammo
5. CB
6. Poweline phone connector(forgo correct term)

8. 3 gals of water
9. Junk
10. Stuff already in Jeep.

shaunmac 10-26-2010 09:56 PM

Mine was serious. But I always have enough to survive a couple weeks in my Jeep.... I would love to get stranded and become my own survival show.

Haha. Nice one!

BrianCarter 10-27-2010 12:09 AM

Great idea on the MRE...might have to use that one

popstop785 10-27-2010 12:54 AM

What I have:
1 Gallon of water.
Traver toothbrush and paste
roll of TP
Roll of paper towels.
Box of granola bars or similar.
JUmper cables.
Camera.
AC outlet adapter for electronics.
A bi monthly updated Tom Tom (Cell phones with GPS tend to suck when you have no signal)
Ratchet and spare tools.
Zip ties.
Gallon plastic zip lock bags.
My PS90 with a full clip and 200 spare rounds (pending on the state I'm in)
Heavy duty tow rope
Towel
Hand held radio set up to 5 miles
Compass
My Eagle Scout skills.
My Gerber 5 inch military blade with line cutter.
pocket knife
box of Diamond Strike anywhere matches
Zippo
My Boy Scout manual from when I was younger (good survival notes in it)
Small fleece blanket
my standard car Jack
I keep my full spare tire always filled with enough air before any trips.
5 bright red flares.
1 small little hand mirror
on little magnifier glass.
Jeep Manual
light rain poncho
first aid kit.
Hiking shoes
Dirt bike gloves
Little tire plug repair kit
Spray on sunscreen
deodorant
Notebook, pen and pencil
My scriptures (I'm LDS so I take them with me everywhere...)
Oh and I try to never let my Jeep go below a 1/2 or 1/4 tank of gas at all times.
Some spare cash and change within the Jeep hidden in crazy spots.
1 head lamp LED flashlight
1 Mag light and 1 10 bulb LED flashlight
A red laser light on my Jeep key chain

And that is all I can think of on the top of my head at the moment. That little storage space in the back of my JKU is PERFECT for most of this stuff. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout by the time I was 14 years old... It's made the biggest impact on my life. And I know I am missing some things for survival... but I feel I have enough top handle myself for a little while. I do not keep drugs or alkie. I stopped drinking 22 months ago... yeah, go me! :)

To me my Jeep is Freedom and a survival vehicle.... maybe I am just odd and a little over prepared or slightly unprepared.

thaduke2003 10-27-2010 08:12 AM

All joking aside, I ALWAYS have the following in my 2-door:
Hi-lift jack (mounted so that I can rather easily remove it)
2 D-rings front/rear
Snatch and tree-saver straps (kept inside, and clean to reduce damage)
Small, portable compressor
MOST importantly, a full-size spare
A pretty solid Jeep-oriented toolkit, with breaker bar, hammer, tons of sockets (impact and regular), a good set of gloves, an LED head-light (for my head :)), and any tool I've yet used on the JK (save my cordless impact gun, which I take on any road trip), and more :)
My 8,000 pound winch
Steel bumpers and rocker protection, all designed to be used as a Hi-lift jacking point
A cooler with various tasty beverages on any road trip (read: Gatorade and Guinness :))
Every pocket/storage spot, and often a backpack, filled with snacks, like beef jerky/pemmican, granola bars, etc.
Spares for some of the trail-fixables- U-joint for my Woods driveshaft, the stupid plastic t-case bushings that ALWAYS break, etc.
And most important- my iPod, with days worth of good jams :) Mark W.
