    I just drove my taco 10,000kms across Canada and the US.
    The only thing I had was my cell phone, flashlight, a sleeping bag and a blow up mattress in the box to sleep on. Not even a wrench with me.. I was 1000% confident when I left and just as confident when I returned home.

    However, your question might pertain to emergency kits, like flares, first aid kit, fire extinguisher etc.. In that case, there are many options.

    Try some JB weld, last weekend i had to fix my leaking oil pan. Took a ride to the nearest town, bought JB Weld, some oil, and come back and fixed the leak. Today I went and bought a new oil pan, but after I inspected the repair, NO LEAKS. I decided to leave it alone for 3000 miles and deal with the problem then.
    Take care

    Awesome post Silverback07!

    I carry many things that Silverback07 stated plus I also carry:


    1. super siphon
    2. petrol gloves
    3. 1 x Jack stand
    4. multi-meter
    5. solder
    6. assorted wires / zip ties
    7. Spare head lamp bulb
    If going on an extended trip into the extreme backcountry and alone, bring a rented Sat phone and if you can afford it buy a PLB.

    Silverback07, have you ever seen someone use the factory Tacoma jack on the trail? I've always wondered if it would work, (assuming there is a solid safe base for it).
