    Lol it was the first thing I thought of when I read that part of the post. I'm sure several people have that same tool kit

    Buying cinder blocks, rope, tape, shovel at home Depot will stir up some whispers too

    Come to think of it, I should take this more seriously. I keep nothing useful besides the stuff Toyota provided, minus the stuff I've broken/lost.

    Another member on this site said they had a battery powered flashlight charging and it caught on fire but he was lucky enough to catch it as it happened. Ever since, I've never left anything charging while unattended. Good to be aware of this.

    Great information guys. Sorry I'm a slacker. Been working like crazy. Once I get a breather I'll post pics of what I keep in my truck.

    Question: what do yall store all the gear in. I'm a big fan of Blue Ridge Overland Gear. Have a few bags from them. Great quality stuff. Made in the US

    So I'm looking at adding a folding shovel to the kit because I'm about to order two sets of 2 knockoff MaxxTraxx boards. Figured a folding shovel would be a good addition as well. Which shovel do y'all recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    In my bed mounted toolbox: Dewalt portable power with air compressor, 2-ton floor jack, wheel chocks, WD40, tire plug kit, rachet straps, tow straps, 4-way tire iron, work gloves, machete, hatchet, folding shovel, Husky tool bag with the basic wrenches, screwdrivers, pliers, and various balls for my hitch and a folding step stool so my 91 year old grandmother can get in my truck (I regularly drive her to church).
    In the compartment under my back seat, I have a pair of work gloves, a roll of duct tape, a package of sanitary wipes, a rain jacket, and a lock box for my gun.
    Stashed behind my driver seat, I have my get-home fanny pack. In that I have a basic first aid kit, a small flashlight, a rechargeable headlamp, 25 rounds of .38 ammo, a pocket knife, a multi-tool (even though I always carry a multi-tool), some paracord, some Bic lighters and matches, and a camouflauge poncho secured to the strap with two mini bungi cords.

    Am I missing anything?

    When I was shopping for a folding shovel, I went to my local surplus store thinking I wanted an e-tool (the military issue tri-fold style). Upon my arrival, I found a shovel that only folded in one spot, rather than two spots like the GI issued shovels. I thought that was the better option, on less point of failure. If you're rucking in the military, yes the more compact tri-fold is the way to go. But if its going to ride in my bed mounted tool box, the single fold just seemed like the better option. And I feel like its a better option if I needed it for a self defense instrument.

    It may take a little more grit but my Marine Corps issued e-tool works just fine. If it can dig a four foot deep fire hole in Somalia and Camp Pendleton I know it will continue to serve me just fine. Though I will agree that weight or size isn't the issue. It's more of a sentimental tool for me.

    Anyone remember these? I have one packed away in a tote somewhere with old camping/hunting stuff. Not sure where my father got it, but he had it before I was born and I put a lot of miles on it when I was a kid. Was still talking it camping up until a few years ago. I'm guessing mine is 60-70 yrs old min and aside from paint worn off the the tip of the spade, it's still rock solid. It may end up in the truck once I finish my storage arrangement.

    I've seen these before and agree that they are nice little tools. Not sure how the 23 under back seat is arranged but I'm sure it would fit under there in mine. I don't use any storage bins or the specific weathertech bin. Everything just gets tossed under there and it seems it be working out just fine for me. Organized? Not so much. Holds more? Likely.

    What does y'all storage solutions look like for all your stuff? I have a few Blue Ridge Overland gear bags and a ESP storage under the rear seat. (don't have anything stored in the ESP yet as I need to get some foam and cut out a skeleton for what I intend to store.)

    I have the Decked drawer system, so basically everything, lol.

    Just too much to list, and more than I could remember, anyway.

    Most common things I have needed this past summer: Wet wipes, towel, flashlight, tape measure, latex gloves, folding camp chair, extra water, zip ties, knife, hatchet, and duct tape.

    And I always have a sidearm with me. I actually forgot earlier this week and sure enough, some jackwagon took offense at something about my pickup and started flipping me off and tailgating me going down the highway at 65 mph. Police response time out in the country is not exactly stellar out here, and cell phone coverage is spotty. Not a good feeling knowing some nutjob is losing his mind and focused on you and you have no way to defend yourself. Thankfully he passed me eventually and went on his way, satisfied that he had done his due diligence for society.
