Re: Ultimate Emergency Tool Box

Fencing / Bailing wire and a pair of fencing pliers. I've used this before on applications where the zip ties just will not cut it: exhaust or other heated materials.

Re: Ultimate Emergency Tool Box

First you need a good box. I've used a Rubbermaid ActionPacker for ten years now and it just fits in the FJ. It takes up about half the space in the back, sits on the passenger side to help with the weight transfer and is about one foot high. Even my compressor/inflator and jump start fits in there, as well as a lot of other stuff. I'll post a photo.. Ron

Re: Ultimate Emergency Tool Box

POWER TOOLS...did everyone forget there is a elctrical plug in the rear. 100' of good old fashion outdoor/industrial extension cords and tada circular saws, drills, heck you can even recharge the batteries is you have cordless tools.

400w

400W ain't much.. Best to use that one for small stuff like cell phones and smaller rechargeable batteries. I still want a stand-alone 1000W+ that connects directly to the battery for big stuff. I got a great one at Sams's for $29. If I burn the wires off it, it doesn't take the FJ wiring with it. If I don't need it, it stays in the ActionPacker with my MaxFlow and jump starter. Ron

yup

I agree with the suggestion for a toss-in bag for wheeling, but hauling all the stuff mentioned in the thread around daily is a little much (with the exception of self-protection and a cell phone). Good suggestions, though..

Re: Ultimate Emergency Tool Box

That's one of the advantages of having a good light weight box. On a daily basis, you just carry what you need and use it as a trunk organizer. It comes in real handy for the unexpected hauling/storage cases. When you're roadtriping or off-road, you pack it accordingly. Sort-of purpose oriented.. Ron

I agree that my inverter is on the soft side. I use it to keep the charge up on my Jump Starter Kit on the way to work when it is cold. So far so good as it was needed three times this winter and never hit the house beyond its initial charge.

Other than that it fit in that cubby hole and my spot light is AC.

I do smile when I go to the truck stops with the giant inverters.

Re: 400w

Inverters are deceptive to a lot of people. 1000 watts (1KW) is nothing in the 110-125 volt world (8-9 amps, zip cord stuff), but in the 12 volt world it's around 80 amps! That'll fry most every wire in the FJ except the starter and charging circuits.. Ron
