LOL, very true. But to be honest, it is kinda cool to see what people keep in their rigs (either all the time or sometimes) depending on their level of offroading and demographics. But then again, I got a lot of good ideas that I will certainly be implementing.

Jumper leads
Recovery hitch
Tow strap
Snatch strap
Equaliser strap
Gloves
First aid kit
Puncture repair kit
Miscellaneous tools
Water
Toilet paper
Duct tape
Cable ties
WD-40
Window breaker/seatbelt cutter attached to my cargo barrier
Hi-Vis police vest and hat

This stuff is mostly for the benefit of others who need help on my day to day travels, as there can be several hundred kilometres between towns out here and I'm legally obliged to stop and render assistance, and for me when I leave the bitumen. I live by the principle of "if it moves and it shouldn't, duct tape (or cable ties); If it doesn't move and it should, WD-40".

Need to add:

Maglite
Multi tool
EPIRB
12v air compressor
Fire extinguisher
Snacks (although I'm usually pretty well stocked on food when I leave home)

And probably other stuff that I can't remember.

Man, that is perfect. Great use of space and nice and clean. What was used to mount it? I am assuming the black holder came with it, but what did you use to attach it to under the seat?

Great mod on that!

The black holder has 2 holes in the back for wall mounting with screws. I utilized those holes. I put some blue painters tape on the carpet of the panel and found a good position for the extinguisher. Then I used a sharpie to draw an outline of the mount. I removed the panel (kind of a pain in the ass), placed the mount in the outline and then marked the holes. I drilled 2 small holes and then removed the tape. Using 2 small bolts and nuts (with washers under), I attached the mount to the panel and reinstalled it in the floor. Then plopped the extinguisher back in.

Lots of varying factors here...What I keep in mine feels like a pretty bare minimum to me and takes up far less room than you would think. No reason not to have these items available at will, whether it's to get me out of a bind or someone else.

On that note, I shall be adding a tire plug kit and recently picked up a 2.5 gallon gas can that will also be kept in the Jeep.

Please expound on exactly where one may find an inexpensive satellite phone? Been thinking about getting one, but don't want to pay $700 for it.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

A battery pack is a better option then jumper cables, and for powering electronics.

If you have a Hemi make sure you carry 5W-20 oil. This is not common, and if the wrong stuff is added it can cause MDS issues.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Just figured I would shed some light on a few of my "oh shit" purchases:

2lb fire extinguisher
16" folding shovel
emergency medical kit
Maglite
Jumper cables
12" bowie knife
full size spare
fire starter
compass
flares
gloves.
Spare cell battery

Trying to find a bottle jack that will fit too. Then, I think I am good.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Good points noted from many people here, I appreciate it as well.

I need to stock up on some essentials before the next time I really go out adventuring. Not sure I'll need an AR15 or a .45 though.

I wonder if our Australian friends down under carry guns in their rides? Oh— wait...
