Once you’ve got your food and drink needs taken care of, think about your Jeep. Check that your tire gauge is in the Jeep before you go. It’s important to have a full-size spare. Getting back from the middle of nowhere on a space saver just isn’t going to cut it. We always carry a Hi-Lift jack in addition to the factory jack. We also take along a real lug nut tool, such as a breaker bar with a dedicated socket of the correct size, or a one-piece lug wrench. If we don’t have compressed air, we make sure to travel with someone who does, and we always carry a patch kit such as the one shown here from Power Tank in case we damage a tire and have already used the spare.
