Junk in the trunk...

So after building a shelf in the cargo area, and looking at how much "junk" I carry with me, I thought this would be an interesting topic. What do you carry with you on your rig?

Me:
Spare tire
Axe
Russian Military Shovel
Paramedic bag (wound dressings, gloves, IV stuff, some meds, sutures)
Bug out pack (matches, space blanket, bandaids, water, foldable water bag...)
Winch bag (tree saver, gloves, snatch block, pad, extra shackles)
Emergency car kit (Orange triangle, small 12v compressor, flashlight, slime)
Camping toilet paper
Fire Extinguisher
Windbreaker
High Viability Jacket (yellow w/ reflective stripes)
Blanket
Binoculars
Sharpie and paper pad
Small tool box (common size sockets, pliers, cutters, assorted screw drivers)
Camping towel
100' 550 paracord
...I think that is it...?

Cooler comes and goes. The ARB fridge will be added to a future Expedition Trailer Build.

That panel you have your spare sitting on can hold quite a few things under it. I fit my winch kit, winch snatch block, mini Home Depot shovel, machete, tow rope plus some other stuff.
First aid I keep behind the fold down seat for quick access. It's a good area for quick access items.

Even though you can use a credit card almost anywhere these days (parking meters, taxi cabs, tow trucks, gas pumps, etc etc etc) I still keep a roll of quarters and a dozen 20's wrapped in a ziplock baggie in my tool duffle. The sketchier the situation the handier a wad of good ol' greenbacks can be.

Lets see-
East. German Folding Shovel
Camp Axe
2x .30 Cal Cans ( for Tools )
.50 Cal Can ( Air Compressor, rags and Jack handle)
Patch Kit
Fire Extinguisher
Road Flares,
Spare Pen,
Flashlight
Medium Weight Jacket
12 Ton Jack
General Purpose First Aid Kit
Surgical Instrument Set, Minor Surgery
Small Trauma Kit
Jumper Cables
2x Ratcheting straps, (OH so useful)
Some Paracord
Sometimes Recovery Straps
5L Jerry can with donkey spout.
CB and Handheld Units.
Some Cash Tire Wrench

Will have Spare mounted once I Add rear body mounts and new springs (Sagging)
Will also add hardwired strobe system before the winter hits.

Its nice to have AAA, but self reliance goes a long way. Having the proper tools on hand also allows other to be helped, so I lug it all around.

baby stroller and a first aid kit. in the storage compartment- torx set, 2 sizes of sockets, pry bar, various screwdrivers, tow strap zipties and pliers/multi-tool. 255/70 fits underneath, thankfully- got tired of the 255/75 taking up the trunk.

I removed the factory rear cargo bottom, raised it 2" and build a taller storage compartment under my cargo area. In it i have my hitch, axe, machete, 20k lbs towing strap, chain, come-along, pulley, pipe for extention of breaker bar, small tool bag with basic tools needed, candles, first aid kit, large and small zip ties, wd40, quart of oil, safety glasses, space blanket, small solar panel, i could go on.

The size of the area is fine, it was always the height that sucked. Raising it 2" has made that into actual usable space.

Well I'm glad you have a very enviable magazine collection out back.
All I have is a few Issues of Jeep And Peterson's Offroad Mags and a Hilton Book, so when we break something somehow, (Which is weekly..) I hope you like wheelin' reads.

A Hilton book? Have you every taken a look at Haynes manuals? By far the most helpful and descriptive manuals I've ever read. From rivets to pushrods. I've always had one under my seat
