    They do work great for fluids. I'm not sure what was in them. The stencil says inert projectile.

    Glove box tools (winch controller goes in center console)

    Attachment 221349

    Recovery bag gear.

    Attachment 221350

    ARB main drawer.

    Attachment 221351

    2x Mastercraft bags with small spare parts.

    Milwaukee 18v tools.

    ARB Drawer has two side compartments meant to open up from rear but it doesn't work well in practice. Instead I drop the back seats to access from the front. Mastercraft canvas bags fit vertically in the space.

    Attachment 221355

    In each side tunnel fits a gallon of coolant and a Mastercraft bag with 6 quarts standing vertically nicely.

    Attachment 221356

    And all together.

    Where'd you get the underdeck light? Thats a neat idea!
    I like to see what your insides look like, you know as in xrays, cat-scans, MRIs and such.

    Want: PR44 and lots of EVO stuff

    Peel and stick LED strip lights from autozone. Plugs in the 12v adapter with an integrated switch. You can add strips for $10 or so. About 2' long.

    I'm assuming you're using the 12v adapter in the rear of the jeep? I don't have that option, I'd have to run it up front somewhere.

    While mine is not nearly extensive the one thing I did learn on the rubicon was to pack so your tools are readily accessible in the event of a break. Mine were so buried under camping stuff that it would have taken me just as long to unpack and repack as it did to make the repair. Thanks again everyone. One spare part I will carry now is a rear drive shaft with yokes and bolts..haha

    Edit: I noticed a tread depth gauge. Really? Want to make sure you are in DOT spec while on the trail?..haha

    My goal is to figure out what I need to add to my ever growing collection of hand tools.

    Funny thing is this pic doesn't show my nut and bolt collection or the miscellaneous spare parts I carry.

    So let's see what you got! Suggestions for essential tools welcome!!!
    This is a impressive set up but I'm curious to what guys with 2 door JKs do. There's no way a 2 door guy can carry all this and keep the back seat for passengers. I basically carry the essentials like a recovery kit, tow straps, shovel, and some tools. That's about all that will fit. I hope some 2 door people chime in.

    That's a great question!!
    I've seen a lot of 2 door people carry the basic necessities like spare tire tools, a jack. Basic hand tools to disconnect the front sway bar along with sockets and wrenches that fit most suspension and drive line bolts.

    Your best bet is strength in numbers. The more people that you wheel with the better chance someone will have what you need. Trail breaks and repairs are inevitable so it's always best to be as self sufficient as possible.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
