General Discussion > Got Gear?

What do you carry?


Hammer (Avi):
I just saw a thread on some Harbor Freight tools on sale and thought to myself, it has been a long time since I've seen a good trail gear thread.  So here is what I carry everywhere, all the time. 
Hi Lift Jack
2x Recovery Strap
Fluid Transfer pump
Breaker Bar
Wratchet Set
Deep Socket Set
Socket Set
More Extensions
Why more sockets? ugh... this may be getting out of hand
Wrench Set
Ratcheting Wrenches
Locking Pliers
Channel Locks
Jumper cables, the longest that were affordable
A giant chain
I also carry a variety of ropes, adhesives, bailing wire, flares, fuses, spare bulbs, wd40, duct tape, knifes, shovels, axes, a 4lb hammer, and radios.  I think that's it, but I'm probably forgetting stuff. 

I hope this doesn't read like a Harbor Freight commercial.  Anyways, I realized just how much stuff I have so I'll be spending some time organizing and simplifying my kit.  Maybe start carrying fluids or spare parts instead. 

Bringing various nuts, bolts, pins and washers is a good idea as well.

Hammer (Avi):
I wish I had a good list of spare nuts and bolts to keep handy.  Also, just noticed I don't have a metric Allen 3/8 socket set.  Good thing I've never had to top of diff fluid.
