What is in your ZJ that is/could be a weapon?

Heres the idea from the "you know you drive a ZJ when..." thread

I'll start:

For a long time I carried a 3ft pipe in the back of my ZJ. Had two uses: Prop for the rear hatch, and to put on the end of a ratchet for extra leverage.

Eventually I decided that a stick for a hatch prop and a BFH would look a lot less suspicious when I got pulled over all the time.

Funny you say that, a little story. A couple years ago myself and a a couple of friends were staying at a campground in Vermont. 3 guys and one girl (who's "one of the guys"). This really sketchy old guy who introduced himself as Shawn kept following us around the campground and blatantly hitting on her. He also kept trying to get us to take him out wheeling with us. I remember my buddy going into his jeep and getting a flashlight and whispering to me "if he lays a finger on her he's getting 4 D-Cells upside the f'in face."

So yes, they can be used as a weapon.

To finish the story: We made it back home from the camping trip. A week later, it was in the news that there was a fugitive named Shawn who had stabbed somebody in NH, stolen a U-Haul truck and fled to VT, crashed the truck at the border, and got away on foot. He was caught a week after this incident, in an abandoned house in the next town over from where we were camping. When they showed his pic on TV I about made a skidmark in my pants. Should've hit him with that flashlight!

Conventional: S&W M&P .40, Stag Arms AR-15 (Now outlawed, apparently), combat knife, throwing knife and folding knife, no blades below 2.5".
Unconventional: 4-way tire iron, extendable snow shovel, Maglite flashlight (more like a friggin' baseball bat), giant stick to hold the hatch up, school back pack (can double as body armor against firearms), etc.

None of this does anything, of course, without an operator. Your best bet if you are in a situation where you are even THINKING of using a weapon, though, is to just get out of there. Your ZJ should make that work for you

4D maglight, couple of folding pocket knifes, tire iron, my sons aluminum t-ball bat, broken harbor freight machete that's basically a 9" tanto blade now. That's what stays in there pretty much 24/7 but right now I've got a couple axes and a chainsaw since I'm meeting with some local guys and heading to clean up one of the riding spots in the morning

3 d-cell maglite, buck 110, M16 bayonet (did a vietnam setup for halloween... part of the costume is still in the jeep... as an extension to this i also have a dummy grenade... it's got a little weight to it and made of metal), jumper cables, nearly everything in my tool bag, PB blaster (spray in the eyes... its no pepper spray but i'd guess it would also be quite unpleasant to get in your eyes), the jeep itself

1/2" drive breaker bar
1 3/4" wrench
3/8" galvanized tow chain and hooks
Tire iron
Needle nose pliers (make a surprising stabbing weapon)
Anything heavy from the craftsman mechanic's toolkit.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

Well I can't load up pictures but I can give lip service.. Over head .. a flat rack Housing a 22-250 4x14x50mm in a TC Encore.. and a console back between the seat mount 45 degree .. It's either for the 2nd gun or the one from up top dropped down .. I also put plastic ties on the sun visors and then put the barrels into the circle..Cheap and Gun ride right next to the window. Easy Access.
