    Why would you have dry ice. How about just plain old every day ice?

    First, if you're bringing all this other stuff, you better have some way to tie it to your Jeep.
    Also, the 1st time I ran the Rubicon (my Jeep was basically stock then) I used a bunch of rope to hold my rack on when I lost the bolts somewhere around Spider.

    Thought I'd revive this thread for any new ideas and for the new members, also I have a question for the general knowledge/experience base here.
    I've seen people with an axe on their roof racks (bumper, inset, whatever), but I can't really see the need for one. Wouldn't it be better to carry a pick-axe, digging bar or something, and leave the cutting to a hatchet or crosscut saw?

    Or is the axe just for cutting firewood and not really related to offroading?


    I blame all gramatical errors on Apple and the iPhone.

    I have used my axe to cut dead trees out of the road, make firewood, and I have cut dead trees in to sections and then used para cord to create bundles I can stick under tires when I was super stuck in snow. I have also used it as a hammer and to cut away ice when in crazy snow.

    Except for splitting wood though wouldn't a saw be a better use of space/weight for clearing trails and cutting firewood?

    Cutting away ice, that's extreme From what?

    I'm just thinking that carrying an axe might not be needed, and I could get by fine with a small hatchet and a cross-cut saw.

    I almost always carry an axe, but really don't use it.

    I only carry it because one time I really did need it (or a saw would have worked too), I didn't have it.

    It's also with me when I just want to cut firewood.

    On the original topic, Event Requirements, I think the list is fine. It's a minimum to have, not the best to have.

    The one thing I see people here going without the most, is recovery points. Many Jeeps, especially XJs, don't come with them. I have helped pull more than one member out by attaching to the axle, because they didn't have proper recovery points.

    My XJ didn't have them. It was the first thing I did to it back when it was stock.

    An axe is a lot more effective than a shovel sometimes in regions with snow as wet as what you guys have around here. If you get stuck in the afternoon, when the temp drops 5 degrees or so, you get set in like concrete. Jumping up and down on a steel spade will wear you out a lot quicker than a guy chopping it up and then moving the chunks with a scoop shovel.

    I don't know how some of you guys ever get anything done with the little fold up military/avalanche shovels I frequently see people carrying. There's no leverage with one of those. You're almost better off using your foot and saving your lower back from having to hunch over.

    I agree with everything on the list. Couple things I'd like to add are common sense, and preparedness. Plan ahead of where your going. Thinking of situations that may happen on the trail and being prepared for them is always a plus. Also common sense. If you are going to run say Bud-wiser and axe might be absolutely necessary. However if your running say Rubicon an axe may be appropriate. I find that common sense and preparedness are two extremely useful tools to have.

    Along the same lines as an axe, I like having Machete with me. You never know when a federale could come in handy.

    factory hooks fine. Hitch ball, no-no, but receiver hitch OK.
