I keep a few boxes of condoms. When your Jeep looks this good, babes come a knockin and the jeep gets a rockin.

I also have my passenger seat set up with a dump button. No, I don't mean #2, I mean the door flings open and the seat dumps the passenger out.

But in all seriousness, there are some great ideas in here. Just thought id add a few.

A blanket or throw for my passengers, I tend to run the car cooler than people like. A few ziplock bags, batteries-d's and aa's, a small rug on top of the cargo cover for snowy trips, a dog leash and collar, a few zip ties, a sunshade, extra pair of sunglasses, shoes/sandals, a hat, surf wax, crazy glue for small cuts, thats about it. This stuff isn't really for life saving needs, but more or less in the car so that I don't have to head to the garage or the house while doing something near the car. I do have a better Go bag, well more of a plastic container for road trips but it doesn't need to be in the car all the time.

I noticed in one of the pics that u had your flashlight in the tire area, I tend to use mine a lot so it's in the net behind the passenger seat.

There was a guy on here that did a small post about mounting the flashlight between the door and the drivers seat by the seat controls. Looked clean and easy to access. Man, wish I could find that thread.

I was actually thinking about doing something like this before. I would've cut a 2-3" piece of PVC pipe, paint it black, then attach it to the lower trim on the side of the seat. Then I would have glued a piece of wetsuit material inside so that the flashlight sits snug inside the PVC pipe. This was about a year ago, about a day before I put the flashlight in the net behind the seat and it never came to about.

Beat me to condoms lol actually there was episode of Top Gear they were given cobdoms and viagra. The blue pill was to increase heart rate at their location. The condoms were to seal fuel filler tube to ford a river.

That is hilarious. I have already played out a few scenarios in my head spoofing that episode. Here's a quickie-

Scene 1--
Adam- Guys how are we going to ford this river?
Tanner- Rut, we need to cover up the fuel filler hole, hurry up and pop a Viagra, put on the condom and fill the hole. Then hold on till we get to the other side.
Rutledge- Uh, that's not what I signed up for.
Adam- Tanner, great plan. Rut, your replaceable. So your doing it.
Rutledge- Dammit, ok, but u guys are buying beers later.
Adam- let's rock.

Scene 2--
Groups is now in the other side and they do the Toyota jump.
Adam- We made it. Didn't realize the river was that shallow. Also, we should have followed the script, it says to place the condom around the hole, not stuff it.
Rutledge- #%?!

That's the cleanest and shortest version of the spoof I would do.

Back OT though, no one has mentioned a toothbrush/paste or deodorant. Those are three more things that are always in the ride.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Driver's door pocket:
Surefire G2X Pro
Spare G19 mag w/ Gold Dots

Glove compartment:
Glock 33 round 9mm mag w/ FMJ (for now)

Cargo area:
5.11 COVRT 18
Whoopie
550 cord
Several stripped MREs
Mechanix gloves
Chem light
Small section of VS17 panel
Water purification tablets
Empty canteen
2 bottles of water
Spare G19 mag
Flint and striker
First aid kit
Some other stuff I can't remember...

Spare tire well:
PMAG and G19 mag in an HSGI Taco, mounted on a belt paddle

Some good ideas here. Obviously I need to add a lot more vehicle related items. A knife or two, multitool, and hatchet are on the list. I have most of these but not dedicated ones to keep in the Jeep. That recovery hook is on the list too. A good flashlight is huge, but a headlamp will make life so much easier. I need a dedicated one of those too. I also need to get a Dark Angel IFAK with a tourniquet or two. I can live with having to wait for a tow or something. I potentially can't live with not having a gun and IFAK (or at least a TQ), though my upcoming PCS to Hawaii is going to leave me missing the former.

OP, I carry my Glock everywhere I can because there is nothing I fear more than me being helpless while someone harms my fiance - same with the IFAK. In my eyes, her protection is my first and foremost duty and I never want to be in a situation where I didn't have an adequate tool for that job. In the long run, they're cheap insurance at the least, and every now and then they are the one thing that saves a person's life. Something to think about.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

For SRT owners with Spider Monkey rims: a spare terrycloth microfiber rag to clean them. Those suckers get dirty quick.

Oh yeah, like the guys ^ up there said, condoms. The ladies just can't seem to keep away. and the back seats fold down completely flat.

IT would have been nice for a more heavy duty flash light that came with the truck in the trunk.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

You know, with the cold weather settling in across the northeast U.S. it made me think about something. I forgot about it until my mom mentioned it over Christmas. She and dad always had this one thing in the car in the winter, as we lived off the beaten path. Of course cell phones were a thing on Star Trek so there was no calling for help unless you walked to a pay phone. Things are slightly different today but we still take trips snowboarding and camping (and some areas do not have cell service) so I immediately put a couple of these in my spare tire well. Now, those of you that heave read this far are like "WTH is he talking about?!?!" Well, I'm talking about Tea Light candles! They are cheap, small, non-drip and last up to 7 hours. One or two of them burning on your dash or center console can actually raise the temperature in your car 10-15*f. They can also be used to melt snow or ice for drinking water. While I would not leave on burning while I slept, the amount of leakage in a car is sufficient to displace the CO and CO2 produced by 2 candles.
