:D Back in Nevada and time-I cleaned all my tools and recovery gear-

You may not like my collection, but I've been using it for a long time, here's some pics

















The pic from California last week when I washed her for the second time in 2011



Just about ready for some trips SOON/w the trailer and I'm pretty well set for unforseen danger-

:DWell some of the small tools, that aren't in the pic, I've had for over 35 years, all the chrome wrench's sockets/ratchets (Metric), in the last 6 years-

The chain saw (STIHL) 5 years, just got the big case in Ca., 3months ago-

Heh, the HiLift Jack, I've had for over 16 years and just got the "Jackguard" case fron Quadratec-

The recovery gear goes back 20 years--takes time and you'll find out, the one time you need something--you ain't gotit--trying to keep that from happening-

Jeeeeeeesssssss......

GREAT Collection. Most Rescue Trucks would love that gear.

The weight must cost you 5 - 6 mpg :eek:

"Remember, in the end the Jeeper with the most toys WINs" :rofl:

Are you sure you have enough stuff in you rig? Look at all that cargo room you've left unused. I think you need more so that you have to Tetris it in there. :rofl:

How someone could find fault with that collection, I can't imagine. Gave me some ideas, just seeing it. JB Weld...? Never would've thought of that, even though it's automotive gold. You are the "McGuyver" of Jeeps, Jimbo.

:D heh Heh, well I can't get near his accomplishments, but I've done many similar things and if you look to the upper right of pic#2, the little black box has a gas welding setup, that I've used quite a few times with the small propane bottle to the left-


Wonder if he can weld with a half dollar and a set of jumper cables? :D

It's amazing what you can do with zipties-I've got a set of 26" 1/4" zipties with the trailer and they will hold/secure/truss, almost anything up to 150lbs-

In pic #4 at the bottom is a 12vdc 2000lb electric jack that is pushbutton controlled and I've lifted the whole front of my jeep several times--

Right behindit are the tire chocks--use ALL THE TIME and to their right is a bag with (RED) Pneumatic Bead Expender--for setting busted beads-Learned that in 1974 with Goodyear expanders (free) in S&R-

I can't rival McGiver, but I like to be thought of with mannerisms like that-!

Good thing I got a lotta self-esteem.

But not so much that it's gonna prevent me from stealing as many of your ideas as I can. :D I'm fairly well outfitted for personal survival...you've just opened my eyes to JEEP survival. I'm kinda lacking, there. Thanks for the photos.
