One of the first things I wanted to do with the FJ was create a very strong emergency kit (tool box). Now not everything I wanted fit in the tool box (will explian later). This is not about part back up axles and such..

Out of the tool box..
Nice Air Compressor (Mountable) but stores in a bag...
High Cranking Amp Jump Starter

In the Tool Box
Duct Tape
Flares
Tow Strap
Tire Repair Kit
Fix-A-Flat
A few Knifes and Blades
12 Volt Spot Lamp
Flash Light
Tire Deflator
Gloves
Jumper Cables
Few Rags and Such


So what is missing?

Thanks
Scott

Other suggestions...

-Rope
-Tarp for shade, temporary shelter, or ground cover
-A bow-saw is handy for quickly cutting moderate-sized tree limbs (beats an axe for many situations in my opinion) - they are also lightweight and many collapse or fold down to small size.
-Hand-held GPS unit and magnetic compass
-Nylon tie straps

I also carry a space blanket, whistle, emergency strobe light, candles, mirror. And I always have something that goes "bang".

Lots of great ideas in this thread. Thanks.

For those folks who are familiar with the AR15.com forum, they have thread after thread for when the "SHTF" (@$%$ Hit The Fan) scenarios. And what you have in your SHTF box along with your AR.

This thread reminded me of those threads. My ultimate emergency box would contain more than just vehicle supplies.

I this list of stuff you carry around everyday?

This seems like tool box or bag you would have in the garage and throw in back when your gonna go wheeling. From what people are saying its like people run around with all this stuff as if they are on the verge of going on an expedition at any second.

Good list for something that you have in the garage and use when you go wheeling. But if anything happens in the city call the insurance tow truck to come pick you.

You're talking as if an FJ would break down in the city. ........:rofl:

Yes I carry a lot of stuff, but I hate not being prepared. I know you wanted to keep this on tool box items, but it is very important to be able to repair a CV on the trail. Expect them to fail, it is the weakest link in the drive train.

CV Axle assembly
Left and right diff seals
Couple extra c-clips for the CV


And for goodness sake, take those sway bars off!
