Safety Check List

I compiled this checklist from several sources. I'm going to put it on my website. Does anyone have any suggestions, comments, or ?


This is a list of items that you should consider having when you travel on 4-wheel drive trails, in the mountains, or other remote areas where help could be delayed or not received. Even if you only plan a short trip, it could turn into a long trip due to mechanical or navigational issues.

Information listed was obtained from California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Esprit De Four 4 Wheel Drive Club, Backcountry Adventures (ISBN: 1-930193-08-4), Guide to California Backroads & 4 Wheel Drive Trails (ISBN: 0-9664976-5-1), last and least: my personal experience.

WEB LINKS:
United Four Wheel Drive Clubs
California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs
Blur Ribbon Coalition
Tread Lightly



***DISCLAIMER: (Please read all of this!!)***
Using this list and having all of these items does not guarantee you or your vehicle’s safety. You are responsible for that. You have to decide how much or how little gear and tools you can and/or want to carry. Please use this list as only a guide and do not limit yourself to just the items on this list. Be aware of your vehicle limitations and you’re driving skill/experience. If you have doubts about an obstacle or situation, DO NOT attempt it! Try it next time when you upgrade your vehicle and have more experience.


THE BEST ADVICE:
Travel with another people who have similarly, or better equipped 4-wheel drive vehicles. Consider joining a 4-wheel drive club. Some are vehicle specific (i.e. Jeep club), some are activity specific (rock crawling, desert), but most are non-specific general clubs and based on geographic location.

Tell someone where you are going and ETA to return/destination. Obtain emergency phone numbers of emergency services in the area you are traveling in, i.e. park rangers, BLM, Sheriff’s Office. 9-1-1 may connect you to emergency services that are not local.

*Bold italic items are required to attend California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs and other 4 wheel drive club runs.

VEHICLE SAFETY/CHECK LIST:
*Seatbelts for all occupants (Just as vital on slow speed trail as on high-speed highway)
*Rollcage, rollbar, or factory hardtop

*Current registration and insurance for any on highway driving or flat towing
Fuel, oil, coolant, ATF all other fluid levels
Visual inspection under hood and under carriage for loose bolts, worn belts, frayed or exposed wires, etc.
Windshield wiper & horn test
Tire pressure (proper & no leaks)
Lube chassis (driveshafts, steering, etc.)
*Attachment points front & rear for vehicle recovery
Check all vehicle lights, OEM, aftermarket, dash
Wash vehicle prior to run. To prevent spread of non-native plants, bacteria, etc.

For guys running Dana 44 stuff in the front, you may want to add:

Spindle
Inner and outer wheel bearings and races
Spindle nuts
Drive flange stock slug thing if you don't have a spare hub

I see you have JB weld in there, might recommend JB Quick. That stuff works in 5 minutes!

Ratchet straps and come-a-longs are good too.

Gas tank and radiator repair stuff is pretty cheap and easily available at most auto parts places.

Also, for the guys who wheel on long, remote, difficult trails and frequently weld stuff, carry lots of extra welding wire and some scraps of steel plate, 1/4" in various sizes. Think about plating a cracked frame.

I don't see a chain saw in there anywhere. Early spring and summer wheeling often leads to downed trees. Chain saws are also awesome for providing lots of nice firewood for the campfire. A splitting maul is nice too. Don't forget the fire permit.

Anyone who is an amateur radio operator and wheels all over the place should have the latest ARRL repeater directory. Hard to get help if you don't know where the repeaters are!

One 'must-have' are u-bolt type spring clamps. Nothing ruins your wheeling experience like a broken main leaf spring. Heavy duty spring clamps and plates keep the broken leaf together, then a winch or ratchet strap can keep the axle located.

There are many broken things in this picture, but take notice of the spring clamp just behind the duct tape.

Later,
....Mike

P.S. Carrying a main leaf spring is not a bad idea!

Not sure if its there but a fluid clean up kit. Maybe a drain pan or something like that.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.."

you forgot to put "digital camamra" on the list. alternate would be a camcorder if not both. documentation of mistakes and fixes helps those who come later.

Good call. Oil absorbent pads are cheap and very compact.

This is an excellent set of suggestions. Just one question - while cheap tools aren't the best I assume they will do in a pinch. I've got a comprehensive list that reflects things to buy as requested on the main list with prices from Harbor Freight tools that I can post here if you guys think it is relevant.

(P.S. while I might show as a newbie - I'm not *that* new to this - just to Toyota's... Used to be an Isuzu wheeler)

Yeah we did it ourselves too - but what a PITA it was. My ex has it now - thus the reason I have the 93 4Runner.

this sounds REALLY ridiculous and stupid- but i thought of this the other day when i was stuck in houston traffic for a few hours on a highway with my gf and she was seriously about to piss all over herself.
how about a "female urinal"?
hell, even a "male urinal", sure would beat trying to piss in a coke can while stuck in traffic, um, not that i've ever tried or anything...

You can look for online pilot supply shops like Sport's Pilot Shop. They have female urinals, all different kinds.

Most male pilots use a thermos bottle for its low profile appearance. So, never drink coffee out of a pilots thermos. I like liquid laundry soap bottles with the spout hollowed out. Nothing like the wide mouth to make things easier when flying through turbulence.

Now for normal roadwork, Big Gulp cups work well.

Those are good lists. Why do you list octane boost? Also, CO2 would be safer than propane for tire installs.
