    The Run Supply List - What To Bring When You're Out On The Trail

    Anytime you head out on a run whether it's just for the day, over night or a week long trip like the JKX it's always important that you bring supplies. Many Jeepers new to off-road runs probably always ask the same question, "What do I need to bring with me". My goal with this thread is to help inform everyone (especially those new to off-road) what it is that you should have with you anytime you're out on the trail.

    For all the experienced Jeepers reading this, please feel free to post up your thoughts on what you think should be on each list. When you post up, I will add your suggestions to the lists here that way everything will be listed in one place for all to see.

    I would probably put winch in the advanced one but what I'm really getting at especially for the basic list are things that people should have no matter what.


    Advanced would be things like spare axels, trail welder stuff like that. The basic would be something like sunblock, food and water, basic tools spare clothes or anything else like that. I'm really going for the "must haves" and not the "it would be nice to haves"
