The first part is a list for me to do before I hit the trail followed by a section I use to check the Jeep before I head on the trip so I'm sure things aren't overlooked. (Some of the items (CB, Winch, etc) are items I don't have yet but will have eventually and want to be sure to check once I do)

OK you got me. I forget to mention a few of the items I don't bring. Here's what I do not bring from the list:

-Generator (On the list for when I construct my planned CJ/YJ Project & take it to the the trail on a tow rig & trailer)
-Air Compressor (Same reason as generator [above])
-Air tools (no compressor, no tools [once I have OBA I will bring these])
-Air Hoses (See above)
-Repair Manual (I don't own this in a paper copy so I don't bring it)
-Wiring Diagram (See above)
-Spare rear axleshafts (I didn't own these till last week but they will be brought from now on and take up minimal space)
-Flares (Don't own)
-Hi-Lift (Don't own yet [another Jeeper on the ride does] but when buy it will be mounted on rollbar)
-Shovel (Too lazy to pack the coal shovel that would fit perfectly in the tub)
-Ax (Don't own)
-Gas Can (Don't own)
-Winch Accessories (No winch, no accessories)
-Most of the medical list (Don't own but i NEED TO BUY. EVERYONE should! They would all fit in a small backpack.)
-Camping Gear (Don't camp much when I off-road)

Otherwise, I carry the remainder of my list with me. For anyone wondering if they can fit it, here's a picture of everything on my previous list, not mentioned the above, packed in my jeep on my last trail ride. Hopefully you can see that it's below the tub line (best picture I have).

Here's a few more pictures I was able to find of what I bring.

After the ride, a close-up of the rear:


Up-packed (most of the gear) and yes, it fit (look above):


The rest of the gear (tarp, strap, tow bar) (that jack doesn't come, it's for garage use only):

Yes, sort of, depending on the wheel offset and tire width. You may need an aftermarket bracket to replace the stock one to push the tire out further, or do as others have done and let some air out of the tire (which might defeat the purpose of having a spare).

Is it a good idea?

No. It can damage your tail gate. It will either crack the hinges, or it will slowly peel your tail gate back. If you do it, get the tire as snug against the tail gate and body as possible by extending the rubber pads with washers, and make plans to buy a tire carrier.


There, I cleaned up my post to make it a useful contribution.

stuff to add to the info resources.

I'd like to know the advantage of a straight long arm lift kit to that of a radius arm lift kit.

Does one allow more articulation than another? Hope I'm not being redundant

Is there a write up about maintenance on an RH32 automatic tranny? If so, maybe it should be added?
