Light Weight Camping Gear - Lighten Up

Packing your Jeep for a weekend adventure is a lot like the childhood story book "A Fish Out Of Water". No matter how much space you have, you are certain to fill it. The problem is, with a short wheelbase CJ, YJ or TJ, there isn't a whole lot of room to start with. Add a family to the Jeep and space becomes even more limited. Even if you are going alone, do you really need that 20x20 two-room dome tent for just yourself? And where are you going to find a spot on the side of the trail big enough to pitch it? We rounded up some ideas to pack more efficiently so you can leave the roof rack at home and keep your wind resistance and center of gravity as low as possible.
