Trail parts

If you are carrying spare parts for the trail where do you put them?

Drive shafts
u-joints
Etc...

If your carrying a driveshaft you could ratchet strap it to the roll bar, ratchet straps come in handy anyways for trail repairs, and you don't want anything floating around in the back. As far as smaller items, tools, u-joints etc. I have mine in an army surplus rocket crate. It's the perfect size for behind the rear seat.

Many years ago I picked up a Stanley portable storage toolbox on sale at Home Depot that fits nicely between the tub wheel wells. I strapped it down instead of permanently mounting it.

I no longer use it to carry spare parts but it did serve it's purpose for a long time.

Fill out some Jeep details and tell us what kind of wheeling you do.

There's no need to take your entire garage, if you are on light trails and 31" tires.

I have a 2006 LJ Rubicon Unlimited with a 4" lift and 33's. Live in L.A. (Lower Alabama). Rides all very by time and location. Looking for ideas of what you all take and genius places you put them.

Usually carry
Water
U-Joints
Basic Hand Tools
Hi-Lift
Recovery Gear
Cooler
Tire Repair kit
First aid kit

Most if not all it just tossed in the back.

I actually made a checklist of stuff I take, and also of things to check on the Jeep before I head out to the trails.

I have what you have, but also have:

Spare axle shafts (front) since I changed to chromoly.
Paper towels, window cleaner, toilet paper (you never know)
Tire deflators
Air compressor
Knee high rubber boots
Tire chocks
Jeep jack or bottle jack
Cell phone
CB
Pill bottle full of quarters (I went to 3 car washes once and ALL were out of change)
Antifreeze, gear oil, 2 quarts motor oil, brake fluid
Old shower curtain and garbage bags for laying on in snow, mud, sand or whatever.
Old pair of sweat pants and a couple shirts if I get REALLY dirty/muddy
Extra fuses

I put what I can in a big ass plastic tote and strap it down (no backseat) (it will stay dry in case of mud/rain) and the tools in a big bag which goes in the trunk. Recovery gear goes in a separate bag, which goes in passenger floor or in back if I have a rider.
