Great thread and reminds me of how lazy I have been at putting together my onboard gear storage system. My trouble is I have changed vehicles so often I got tired of redoing it every time. That and I am a tech that has to carry a bunch of tools and never seem to have enough room anyway. But I am going to do it now. I am inspired. Will rig out Cass's new ride too.

I was not a boyscout (unfortunately) but being from Alaska my stepdad used to drive semi's in the arctic and he always carried everything... kindoff got in my blood.

Besides the CB, Hi-Lift, air, gas cans and fluids I carry what I think of as the basic shown here..



I need to add spare parts such as CV, belts, ...not completely sure yet on the parts list for an FJ Cruiser... Ideas?

Ok I read this thread and thought I should start putting some gear together.

First aid kit
blanket
extra jacket
knife
hatchet
collapsable shovel (army shovel)
toilet paper
rope
tie downs
bungie cords
wrenches
screwdrivers
fishing pole

Well, that's about all I can remember right now.. not much but its a start, and it all goes in my boy scout box

Holy old thread batman!

Since starting this thread I also carry

-tree trimmers (the ones that cut limbs like a bolt cutter) so much easier than the hatchet on those really thick trees wher you can't get a decent swing.
-flagging tape, easy way to mark your way back (keep it in the back pack)

I am not sure why people get touchy about it either. Unless it is like a for sale add or something useless from 5 years ago, adding to and continuing threads or even answering questions helps people in searches later on since more info will be in one thread.
In this instance, there would be no point making a new thread for this, and all it shows is that you are reading posts and searching unlike 85% of the users on here.

Heck even the rules agree with you;
"It is ALWAYS better to add on to an existing thread (if the information is pertinent) than to start another with the same information.
This makes it easier for the next person with fewer threads to pour over to gather their information."

Hey buddy, I was just fooling around. I actually started this thread and I was just surprised to see it pop back up.

I can't speak for everyone but I dont really care how old a thread is, and stuff like this one are nice to keep going. I like to have a good time, so I made a silly remark. Trust me when I say this is a very friendly forum we have here.

Now if you want to see mean join Pirate, those guys are ruthless!!

Yeah when I got my taco I stopped carrying a lot of my gear, not a lot of places to keep it. Then I got my tool box and now I carry gear again.

In a somewhat related/unrelated note...

I just bought a 1999 4Runner and have been doing the usaual checking it out...

I opened up the compartment in the cargo bay and found nothing in there...
You know the compartment on the right hand side when you open up the hatch in the back.

What is supposed to be in there and what is it called so that I can reorder it online?
If anyone happens to have a picture that would be awesom.

I have searched a ton and this is the closest I have found to answer my question. Also, no firends own 4Runners, only Jeeps so they have no clue either.

Thanks All
Michael

You guys carry this stuff on a daily basis? Why? Where are you going that you are going to need an axe and food rations? Heck I usually do not carry a spare! LOL!
