I just got my first car and it's a little two wheel drive toyota pickup. I am gonna build a box in the back that will just be a giant waterproof drawer to hold my essentials because there's not much wiggle room in the cab. I have an area about 21 inches wide by 36 inches deep by about five inches tall that I can use for survival gear and stuff. I was wanting kind of a get home kit and an overnight gear kit hybrid. If that makes sense. I was wondering what u guys thought about it and what I should include in the box? Thanks for reading my post!

I carry one item in my car at all times.
A very small package consisting of a cotton ball impregnated with petroleum jelly wrappers in aluminum foil, steel wool, and a 9 volt battery. Each item is individually wrapped in foil and wrapped together. Very small and easy to grab and go. Gauranteed fire with approximately a 10 minute burn time.

Add to the list... Jumper cables, dust tape, 2400 calorie emergency food ration bar (sealed 5 year shelf life), Bic lighter, 50 to 100ft paracord (550 type, 7 strand) and the MOST important thing to keep in your car, Bug-Out-Bag... a HEADLAMP !!! A headlamp has saved my bacon more times than I can count.
OH...P.S..... I recommend at least one of those reflective small emergency blankets. Maybe even 2 or 3... because they don't take up a lot of room and can be used for multiple uses.

Some cheap bulky things can be stored unlocked, even in an open box in back. Like a couple of cheap tarps, qt of oil, water, bungee cords, rope, work gloves, jumper cables. Those items are hardly worth stealing and save room in your "lock box". A come-along and a couple of tow ropes can be handy.

Geez... Are you an Ice Road trucker?? That list is for serious Winter weather road survival!!
That brings up a good point... Exactly what would be a particular person's driving environment ????
