That brings up a good point... Exactly what would be a particular person's driving environment ????
I do believe Locutus lives in Wyoming, so his list sounds like pretty standard fare for his area.
“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly

A set of metric combination wrenches.

A roll of duct tape and a couple wire coat hangers.

This will sound crazy, but during my salad

years I had Corollas. They ran like tops, but you

have got to get creative with tools and maintenance.

Early on, stubby 3/8th ratchets weren't available like

today. I literally hack-sawed half the handle off a ratchet.

It got the hard jobs done three times as fast, because it fit

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!
Which year, and engine?

Some of the older ones can be worked on extensively with just a couple of wrenches, and a screwdriver. The newer they are the less user friendly the maintenance gets. But the probability of needing to work on them goes down as they get more electronic.

This is the flashlight im thinking about getting for in the car. What do you guys think? Good idea? Ill have smaller flashlights in my bug out pack this will be used in or around the vehicle. Or to break a window to save somebody or beat some skulls in or give to my passenger if i dont hav another weapon for them also you can take this anywhere weapons are not allowed and you can always keep it in your car without suspicion to big to carry if i need to abandon my vehicle or i might just keep it in case things are really going down hill and i need a club.


6 heavy d cell batteries in a metal tube wrap the batteries in tape for an even more sturdy club. Good idea?

Theres also this bat looking one but its an obvious weapon and the light bulb would probably shatter if you hit anything with it.

Excellent car light. But get the Police model that's rechargeable from the cigarette lighter.
To the world, you may be only one person. but to one person you may be the world.

I'm still kitting out my new Jeep. So far I've installed a CB radio and Hi-Lift jack. The jack can also function as a winch and "Jaws of Life" spreader tool with the right accessories (That's the red object you see between my spare and back seats). I intend to get a first aid kit, fire starter, jumper cables small tool kit, and front bumper w/winch. Space is very limited in the Wrangler so I can't get too crazy. I have a small utility trailer that can haul a lot more if need be.

I always carry a few essential in a duffle in the back of my SUV.

- first aid kit
- tool kit
- jumper cables
- flashlight
- folding shovel
- mechanics gloves
- bottled water
- food bars
- knife
- fire starters
- poncho
- space blanket
- extra sweatshirt, gloves, hat

I think that's it.
