What makes yours a Survival or Wilderness Jeep?

What have you guys done to make your jeep for suited for the wilderness (camping or expeditions) or survival situations? Here are two of mine.

Bottle opener so you dont loose one while camping


Excessive amount of lights to make it look like day time.


There are a few more things, I just have to get pictures of them tonight.

I don't know if you have seen all jeeps, but not all are set up for expeditions or wilderness. This picture for example is not set up for it. anyways, not trying to start an argument. But wanted to see some good jeeps and get ideas from what other people have done.

I fixed the big weak link on a JK, ... the entire front axle. No bent tubes or c-knuckles, no broken shafts, and no blown ball joints to ruin my expeditions.

I have lights front and back. A power invertor to power things. A GPS inside and CB. Spare tire incase of a blowout, small tool bag for emergencies, firstaid kit for the other kind of emergencies, overhead console with compass, roofrack to store things uptop, and a jack. I also have an in car cooler for drinks and food. So far my jeep has served me well for camping.

What's wrong with the stock 44? I'm just curious, I don't know too much about the JK's drivetrain.

I wish I had pictures of mine loaded up, but I usually keep a front driveshaft, axle shafts, u-joints, tool box, 20lb & 5lb fire extinguishers, first aid kit, water purifier, backpacking stove, a machete/saw, and a shovel in the Jeep.

Pretty much the whole front axle on a JK was under engineered. The tubes bend; the c-knuckles bend; the caps on the u-joints have half circle clips that come off, and let the cap come off and bind up the u-joint so the axle breaks; and the ball joints are made of plastic and only last ~30,000 miles (if you're lucky).
