'17 3.6 Limited
So I made this for our Subaru. But it still should apply to pretty much any vehicle.
It's meant for people new to the hobby. Yet experienced ones should hear me out too.
Friends. You're a lot saver traveling in a group. If any one vehicle is disabled you still have ways of recovering it or yourself. A way of communicating with them is a big help here. I like using small handheld radios.
A spare wheel and tire. It's the most common thing that can leave you stranded. Make sure you have a way of removing and installing the spare. I use a factory jack with some wood blocks as a spacer.
A recovery strap. Great for pulling each other out. The kinetic straps stretch and are a lot safer in the equipment. No shock load
Tools. I keep a couple wrenches and sockets. A screw driver and a multi tool on hand. You can fit a lot in a small space. I also like to bring a sawzall and chainsaw with me to clear fallen trees on the trail.
Your brain. It's the most powerful muscle you have. Use it. Don't be stupid. You can get into a lot of trouble very quickly.
Anyone else know of anything else obvious I'm missing?
