    Just thought I'd start a poll that might help us all out a little (me a lot):

    What items do you include in your emergency kits in case of break-downs or getting stuck?

    Since I don't off-road much, I only have:

    tow strap
    tow rope
    lug wrench
    spare tire
    water
    some screwdrivers
    jumper cables
    pocket knife
    flares
    cell phone
    CB radio (sometimes)
    Hi-Lift jack (sometimes)
    hammer (sometimes)
    wrenches (sometimes)
    mallet (sometimes)
    hand winch (sometimes)

    Well I haven't had the pleasure yet of taking my rig offroad yet, but a hot blonde and a 12 pack or too in the cooler sounds pretty handy in case you break down. Might get dark before you can fix your rig, sleeping bag and tent could be good too. LOL, just a thought but you know it's getting late my mind is warped

    Like em big and topless
    Excuse me...Would you mind removing your import from under my chevy?

    Chain is good too. You can wrap it around the axle and frame to jack up the tire without the suspension travel. Extra nuts and bolts. extra belts and hoses. Beer is a must if you break down or get stuck. Hi-Lift jack, used it a few times. A bunch of 2x4 and 4x4 blocks. Extra tie rod, lowest, weakest part of my suspension/steering. blanket for laying under the truck. (or getting laid next to the truck). zip-ties and tie wire. Extra locking hub, much weaker than the front axles and u-joints. If you have an open front diff. you probably won't break an axle. A Hammer. Lawn chair!

    Never said I could spell!
