Came together nicely👍

I also like having a decent bottle jack. Wish I had one with a little bit bigger base to be honest.

I have a Tuffy cargo enclosure; what drove me nuts was the cutout for the factory sub; I don't have one; it felt insecure. My solution was to create a bottle jack base out of plate steel that doubles as a hole filler.

Might sound like an odd question but after seeing it a couple times I really had to question it.
Why have a tool roll if all your going to do is store the tool roll in a box? Aka, a tool box.
I thought it was hilarious to see a guy in Sand Hollow lug out a nice Milwaukee box, just to pull out a tool roll.

Maybe I’m just cheap but I run two boxes from HF. One for parts and fluid. Other for tools. How does he keep his tools separated you might ask? Gallon ziplocks and mini gear ties.

Back to the original question. Some good advice on needed tools. I’ll vouch for the large sockets and an extended 1/2” drive. No kit comes with the perfect combination but a few extra pieces with a good standard kit will do 95% of you needs. Couple rambling items: Chisel set, crow bar, 2lb sledge, spare fuses, spare hardware.

Love the extra storage these little boxes offered.

I like bags better than boxes. When it comes to volume, you can manipulate bags better than boxes to utilize every inch of space. Packing a Jeep is like a Tetris game.
Word.
With bags, they take up a ton less room. they also tent to grip together and not move around much. In September my girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Colorado for 2 weeks. I told her today, no giant suitcases. Soft bags and rolling duffle bags.

Boxes just take up a fixed amount of space. They do not create any space!
