Saftey Items List

I have another idea ....I know...Iknow...but hear me out ...it's just an idea.

I'm going to inventory the "Emergency" items that I carry with me in my truck on an Excel spreadsheet or a Word document. This way I have a quick an easy "List" that I can reference, email or attach to whomever I wheel with ...that way the other driver knows what we're missing and can hopefully compensate.

I think it would be helpful if we had a spreadsheet with everyone's stuff on it for a quick reference...

I know this may be pointless to some of you ...but think about opening a spreadsheet and seeing everyone's stuff .....it would make planning trail runs a whole lot easier and safer.

While I'm waiting for my truck ....p.s.....got a voicemail this morning that we are still on target for Friday ....What do you have on your list or in your truck that you feel is invaluable ...?

And then some research on where to get all this. For trail tools Harbor freight I think is fine. Though I agree with Rich - Need better air tools than just harbor freight.

Also Costco has an AWESOME little kit of Wrenches, Screw Drivers and Wratchets, under the name Crescent. ($60) In a hard grey case that fits behind your seat perfectly!

In addition for all the other tools you buy loose, get a soft side tool bag. A Hard toolbox is a pain unless you can really strap it down. Though I hear Ammo cans work well in the back of trucks.

Happy Shopping! I'll go to harbor freight with you sometime if ya want... Or just tool shopping in general. :-D

Aside from all the recomended tools....

* Don't forget extra fluids. Steering, Transmission, Oil, Brake, Diff, then Grease for shackles, axle etc.
* A Tarp for when you break and all those fluids are draining!
* Shop towels
* Zip ties, Duct Tape and Fence Cable for when you break a leaf spring and shizzy
* At least 2 D rings for your tow strap and 2 pair of gloves to work with that strap. Also get a tow point welded onto your frame.
* I also have an Axe, folding saw and Tire Iron as well as the Shovel.
* Space Blanket or Sleeping Bag. Extra Food, Water, Lighter, first aid kit. You get the drill. It's crazy how fast your truck fills up. The back of my runner is FULL. (But I also carry my 35" spare back there)

You forgot the kitchen sink... my god, if you brought all this crap on every trail, you would need a trailer or a shitload of space. Why not just tow a 2nd truck behind (just in case)?

Yeah I know. Obscene. Let me tell you what I have USED so far. I think that then puts the level of importance up higher.

  • Whinch and Winch Recovery Kit
  • Winch Recover Kit = Snatch Block, Gloves, and D Rings
  • Heavy Duty 75 Foot Strap (Mine is ARB)
  • My Crescent Tool set - Mostly the 10, 12 and 14 mm wrenches and sockets
  • Duct Tape, ZipTies and Wratchet Straps
  • On Board Air
  • Tire Iron
  • Shop Rags, and Tarp
  • 5 Gallon Water Jug
  • Assorted Fluids

That's what I have used. I have yet to use *my* high lift but we did use Josh's 2x last weekend. I have not used my air tools on the trail yet, nor my shovel, axe, saw, electrical tools or my jackstands. (I carry small ones)

My

Most important pice of equipment in my opinion is a couple of good wratchet straps and some chain or bailing wire. If you had seen CCharks truck last year in Moab where the Shackle mount pulled away from the frame and what we had to do to bolster it till it got back to town to be welded. Even a quick trail weld would have done shit for it, as there was so much strain on the point.

This time of year it is good to bring a set of insulated coveralls too. It's no fun to dig a truck out of the snow by hand while wearing only shorts.

I believe the bottom line is to bring the bare necessities for quick trail repairs, warmth, and cleanup. Simple tools to make quick trail repairs like wrenches, screwdrivers, hammer, etc. Things such as jackets, blankets, overalls to keep you warm in case you need to wait out the cold. Cleanup materials such as rags, spill kit, etc to help protect the invironment (tread lightly).

agreed..... carry what you will need to get on and off the trail. if you are on something that will snap axle shafts then bring axle shafts.... but there isn't a point in bringing enough parts to rebuild your vehicle on the side of the trail.
