As every true Jeeper knows there are certain Jeep essentials that should be in your Jeep at all times. Let’s talk about a few of them briefly.
Every vehicle, Jeep or not, should have a safety kit in the vehicle at all times. Generally they will have things in them such as jumper cables, reflectors to put out on the road so that you will be visible and nobody will hit you, a sign to put in your window to call the police, a small flashlight as well as other items. There are many different types of these kits available and each one will have pretty much the same things with only a few variations.
First Aid Kit
A Jeeper is happiest off the beaten path. Many times when they are in their off road paradise they are too far away to get medical attention if the need arises. It is always smart to include a small first aid kit in your Jeep essentials. If you have allergies to insect bites or are diabetic then having a first aid kit with the proper contents could be the difference between living and dying on the trail.
You may have a winch on your Jeep and you may not but rope is always a good thing to have. You never know when you may get stuck or you may come across someone else who is stuck and if you have rope then you always have a way out.
Most safety kits will have jumper cables in them but what happens when you are out on the trail and there is nobody around to jump you off? If you keep a good battery charger that is fully charged in your Jeep at all times then you won’t have to worry about being stuck and waiting for help to come along.
Jack and Spare Tire
Every vehicle needs to have a jack and a spare tire but especially a Jeep. Our tires go where most tires don’t and they tend to get more wear and tear in the process. If you do not want to be stuck out on the trail with a flat then you will make sure that you have these Jeep essentials with you.
When you go off road you might want to have a spare can of gas on the off chance that you run out and are nowhere near a gas station.
All of the items we just talked about (with the exception of gas) can be found at your local big box store or parts house. None of them are outrageously expensive and all of them could keep a bad day from being much worse.
To purchase aftermarket Jeep accessories online, we highly recommend 4WD as your Jeep parts store. They not only offer great customer services but also the most competitive pricing in the business.
