What do you keep in your centre console / glovebox / storage?
 
Thought this might prove interesting - apologies if it exists somewhere already. I'm bored at work and developed a sudden interest in your storage.

What do you keep in your Jeep's various storage areas?
  • Glovebox -
    • Manual
    • Some lollies (for long trips)
    • Tissues
    • Sunnies
  • Centre console -
    • Locking lug nut adapter
    • Pocket knife
    • Ipod & cables
    • Various keys
  • Rear storage compartment -
    • Cable ties
    • Tarp
    • Torx set
    • First aid kit
    • Hammer (not sure why, a leftover from a recent camping trip I think)
    • Snatch strap
    • Shackles
  • Seat pockets
    • Some topographic maps of areas we wheel in regularly
    • Hiking maps
Under the driver's seat I usually have my thongs, passenger seat has a few cleaning items. Unless the top is down and the doors off - then pretty much everything gets removed from everywhere.

Our friends over the pond may wonder why you keep your "thongs" under the seat.

Glovebox
Manual
Tissues
receipts

Center Console
Winch Remote control
Small change
Tissues
Torch
Spare tire repair kit (sits right at bottom)

Rear storage area
Toolkit
Torx bits
Chapman screwdriver sets
Toolroll with spanners

Still trying to fill the other spots up as I've only been driving it for 3 weeks

Thongs :rofl:

Let's see, I don't keep much since it's a soft top and never locked.

Glovebox- napkins, owners manual, registration, 2 CD's (currently Led Zepplin and Molly Hatchet)

Center console- hex key set, insurance card, torx bits/wratchet, screw driver, chalk, zip ties, fuses, hair scrunchies (lol) tail lights, sunglasses, lighter..I think that's it

Rear cargo bay- 2 tow straps, 3 of those steel clips you hook on car frames for pulling them, jumpers, 2 quarts of oil, a driveshaft joint, 2 axle u-joints, sledge hammer, small hammer, metric/american wrench sets, metric/american socket set, a big knife, windshield fluid, 2 funnels, a cheap fluid pump, blocks of wood, a breaker bar, a jack, pliers, channel locks, rags, gloves...that's it I think.

Backseat- extra coat, blanket, an air horn, a sign that says how gay I am that someone put on my Jeep, a little fire extinguisher, and sometimes a hand gun.

Damn I have more than I thought

Ditto, being from the last state IL not to offer Any type of CCW ( hopefully to change soon), it is actually legal to pack a semi-auto hand gun with a loaded clip as long as the clip is not in the gun, in the center console, AND as long as the console is latched (it does not have to be locked). There was a case a couple years ago where the supreme court reversed a conviction, and said the center console constitutes a latched case.

WARNING, Chicago and a handful of burbs have their own ridiculous transport laws, so know your laws beforehand.

GB- manual, junk
CC-45 ACP 1911, 2 10 round clips with hollow points, nose spray, pens
Door pockets - assisted open Benchmade knife

Little pocket under radio, Kimber two shot gel type pepper blaster, effective to 13 feet in wind!

Hey it's a dangerous world out here!
