Wondering what others keep on their rigs daily. I have the basics: flashlights, fire extinguisher, cables, tow strap, jack etc. I have the Bartact seat covers with the molle webbing so I can load up some pouches. Any gear you would suggest? Thank you

@Darren79 you've about summed it up with your list. Although I would have included the first responders medical bag with an assortment of medical supplies and bandages. Even a few oddball items which one may not have thought about using. We're planning on color coding each smaller bag and using ghostly decals as to pin point locations for these bags. You on the right track for creating an overlander for sure.

You've got a good start here.

In addition to what you mention, I carry an air compressor, tire gauge, deflation tools, tire repair kit, survival/rescue knife and of course a 1st aid kit (custom/self packed).

Good list, I'll add toilet paper, hand sanitizer (or wipes) and spare mags

In addition to the above listed, toss in a water bottle with a purification filter, a couple of flares, a can of bug spray, and an MRE or two.

There's more mission-specific kit too ----- includes water purification device (Sawyer), lots more tp & portaloo, stove, etc.
Everything is staged in the garage next to the teardrop --- which is in itself a self-contained bunker...

I'm a CERT instructor in my home county.
https://www.fema.gov/community-emergency-response-teams
My wife and I volunteer with our local SAR team, especially the K9 unit. Love the dogs.

If you're into this sort of thing, take the CERT training. It's free. You don't have to get all that involved afterward, just as involved as you want. If all you want to do is take the training to be better prepared in your home, that's fine. You get access to anything FEMA offers afterward. Even the LEO/FD courses. All free.

K9 demo; Rose's pup was close to graduation in this video during our Rescue Specialist training

"Ammo Magazines" & not the kind you read.. phhfftt.. you forgot the kitchen sink.. Oh and the wipes.. more like fabric softeners can be used as bug repellent when used on the skin then shoved into a pocket or around your shirt collar etc.

Plus:

Tweezers (often come with decent medkits, but a spare won't hurt) and magnifying glass, to remove needles and stingers (you don't want to do it with your fingers lest you squeeze the remaining venom from the sac into yourself).

A fine comb (to separate an unlucky explorer from jumping cacti that attacked them).

That's a pretty good start and close to what I have. I also have a decent first aid kit, tp, zip lock bags, gloves, couple of pairs of socks (they have many uses), roll of electrical tape, box cutter, work gloves, few assorted hand tools, small compressor, tire plug kit, cash and most importantly I always have my cell phone.

I am comfortable with that in all of our vehicles for daily travel and honestly does not take up that much room.

If hitting the road or the trails I would be much more prepared, but around town I just don't see a need for much more.

With the prospect of a new "overland" board being created at the forums. I'll submit that this thread either be moved or recreated within that forum. Also, I'll work on a more detailed and in order list based on members suggestion when the overland forum goes live.
