Re: Packing List

I dont carry as much as i should. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Actually, i would love to be able to carry what Burned has, especially that trailer/tow vehicle! Actually, thats a good idea having those spare tow hooks with you. I installed em on mine, (as did steve on his), and now we've both used em- what a life saver they were!

All i have is the basics:
some fluids, a ratchet/wrench set, straps, tie downs, some spare clothing, flashlights, duct tape (fixes everything! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]), and of course my spare tire and hi-lift. Im sure im forgetting some stuff, but that is unfortunately the majority of it
