For a while now, we have been thinking about putting together a functional and practical kit and we'd like your feedback.
If you could put 10-15 items in a bag what would they be?
it doesn't have to only be recovery gear. It can be survival gear, small parts, anything.

A blanket or tarp is nice. I carry a mechete too (it has a saw tooth back). A couple ratchet straps and zip ties. And most of the other stuff mentioned. Plus a tool bag.

I carry an emergency backpack with first aid kit, water, energy bars, thermal blanket, maps, GPS, spare dry socks, rain gear, etc. I have a separate tool bag with parts spares, u-joints for drive shafts & axle shafts, a spare outer stub shaft (I have Spyntec hubs), front wheel bearing set & seal, spare hub set, u-joint u-bolts, wire & repair kit, spare serpentine belt, tensioner & roller, stop leak, JB Weld, RTV, 5 spare lug nuts, spare schrader valves, valve stem caps, fuse set, cotter pin assortment,spare brake lines & sealing washers and a spare set of the most common suspension bolts & nuts. Under the rear seat I carry a set of inner front axle shafts. In a plastic cooler I carry fluids, motor & gear oil, trans fluid, brake fluid, funnel & hose, a small fluid pump for quart bottles & a Mityvac. I have a Rotopax water carrer, about 2 gallons, that stuffs on the side of the rear compartment.

I have a Warn winch bag with d-rings, tree saver, snatch block, gloves, winch line counterweight. Controller is kept in the cab. Carry a final tool bag with jumper cables, ARB tire plug kit, collapsible lug wrench & sockets a tow strap. All this stuff packs down easily under a Safari Strap net cover in back, along with a full tool box. Has saved mine & a number of others butts numerous times.

2 things I always carry with me offroad are a chainsaw and an axe as backup. Alot of the trails we run are snowmobile trails in the winter and we encounter fallen trees quite often. Also great for making a nice fire when we stop for lunch as well.

PS they don't fit in a bag. Sorry. The axe goes under the floor and the chainsaw is mounted to the rollbar with a ATV/UTV chainsaw clamp
