    You pegged it with the Hi-Lift.. Poor
    mans winch... Where I grew up, with a chain
    saw and a hi-lift there are few things that
    can't be overcome with a couple hours time.

    This will sound stupid but carry what every you don't want to break. If you dont want to break an axle shaft than carry an extra one, you will then break something that you left in your garage. This is how it works in my world. [​IMG]

    Wife carries the camera in her purse and I hate Cheeze puffs. I carry Tostidos and salsa :) Depdog can vouch for that from the Tellico trip hahaha. Going camping this weekend...you want me to add that to the list?
    And your right...if you carry a spare you never break....so far I have never broke my truck but that D44 stub has been passed around a good bit but never installed. Seems everybody who has ever needed it also needed the inner that I don't have.
    My bud still takes the cake. He had a ARB come apart in his 76 K5 and one of the ring bolts got pushed through the diff cover on his 12bolt. He had a spare cover with him!
    Want a picture?

    As many girls as possible. Just kidding. Think about it though - how many girls would actually fit inside a K5 Blazer - a lot!! Anyway, I keep a 20 foot chain, a tow strap with a 6,000 lb. limit, jumper cables, tools, my California amp, and my two 15" subwoofers, as well as my spare tire in the back. Can't go wrong with a chain and a set of tools!

    Chevy's RULE!
