1/8" 6013 will weld anything ever needed on the jeep for a temporary trail fix,i would go with a 3/32 for trail uses,even 3/32 is over kill on anything for a jeep.
6010 runs much different than any rod but a very versatile rod,,we knickname it "Rust Rod"..because it'll burn through rust,paint,grease..you name it..it'll burn out junk and then burn into the metal...we use it on jobs repairing old structural steel in stell mills..paper plants..etc where the buildings were built in the early 1900's and the buildings are litteraly rusting away and need replacement/repairs and use the 6010 so burn the junk out and then grind where possible and go over with a 7018..
7018 runs much different also,at times harder for a beginner to run because it will stick alot easier,but it runs much smoother and a MUCH stronger weld than any 60 series rods once you get the hang of holding a good arc and know the heat to run it good.
Any rod you decide to go with,i would carry 3/32 and maybe a some 1/16 rod for the thinner stuff too,1/8" would be way over kill plus hard to NOT burn through frame repairs and most bracketry on a jeep with 1/8"...3/32 is MORE than enough,plus i would think 3/32 wouldn't overheat the battery setup near as much as the 1/8"
