    it's an original idea that's for sure. But I would think it would be a pain in the a$$ to get them out on the trail where your truck might be in a less than ideal position.

    So.. what do you do if you're high centered on something and need the jack?

    Its a cool idea, original.. but I'd go with function over form if you were actually needing the tools.

    I suppose if they needed to use the shovel to dig themselves out of one of those huge mudholes at a mall...





    ...then it might work.

    On a real trail though? No.
