Re: What you should always keep in your rig

A contractor bag is just a big heavy duty trash bag. They are usually 3 or 4 mils thick, and hold about 7 bushels, so you can stuff them full of things and they don't break. They were called contractor bags, because contractors cleaning up random stuff at a jobsite need something durable to load up their trash. They have many uses.

I suspect that might be a smaller extinguisher, maybe 5BC in that space, but certainly another good alternative. I like the ease of access in this location, and it's on the driver's side. Also, in this position, you can still tilt the seats forward without moving the extinguisher.



Cheers,

I'd I've to know the make and model of that extinguisher. Also, is it dry Chem?

Rather than listing my kit, it's easier to say that you have all provided great ideas. Our lists aren't the same, but they rhyme. The thing that I probably overdo it on is first aid, having a pretty significant outfitter style kit. Having said that, I did take Wilderness First Aid from NOLS. Training is very important. I think it's the Boy Scout in me.

One thing I will suggest... if you have every nook filled in that spare tire area, make sure you have something to put everything in when you have to use the spare tire. I keep a couple of 4 mil contractor bags in the back, useful for many things, but one of them is a place to stow all the gear quickly when you're taking out the spare. You can set it down without everything getting wet, and when you're done, just throw it back in the car, and repack it when you get home.

This becomes more important when you have all kinds of stuff back there:



Be prepared,
Ron
Can you list what you have in there? Personally, I like having a rig full of emergency items. Makes me feel safe on the road and prepared for whatever is thrown my way. Even if it isn't me that is in trouble.

The one in there now is a couple years old, I had it in my GMC Envoy before I bought the Jeep. It's a First Alert Garage & Home model FE10G, 10-B:C rating. It's a basic 5lb dry chemical unit. I'd like to see if a larger (10lb) one fits, but haven't had a chance yet. A 10lb general purpose one would be 3-A:40-B:C and is a much more capable unit. If your fire department does a fire extinguisher demo, go take the training, and you'll want a bigger extinguisher!

Good idea. Also, the reason I like the shape that yours is, is because the dimensions are better for the under the seat storage.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

A good first aid kit and an emergency (e.g. earthquake) supply kit containing things such as a radio, compass, waterproof matches, soap, toilet paper, and so forth.

A good multi-function packet knife is always handy, even for opening bottles and other routine needs.

Baby wipes often come in handy, and I use them for work to clean tools and hands.

If you want a good flashlight, you can't beat the Surefire units.

An old bath towel is always handy for padding items being carried, and a bright color one can be used as a flag in an emergency.

I normally carry some hand tools for work with duplicates of most, and other tools I may need for work, including a length of fiberglass rope, safety vests, some padlocks, and some chain.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Someone mentioned the D-Ring adapter earlier, and it's the best way to attach a recovery strap safely to the rear of the vehicle. Here's an example on the back on my '14 GC:


This one is made by Rampage, 10,000lb capacity. I picked this up from Quadratech for $29.99


Good stocking stuffer (You need a Kevlar Xmas stocking... it's heavy)

Awesome. Definitely getting myself one of these.

Thanks for the tip!

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Like Jimmy Buffett said I am looking for a smart woman in a real short skirt. You should always keep a hot woman in your rig.

I prefer my women in their 40s redheads, and they don't need to be blind for heavens sake :-)
