Great point about the HI-Lift jack. I used to cary one, but over the years found it to be heavy and I can only remeber one time when it was the only tool that would do the job. I have one for home use, but I don't carry them anymore. But, I'd like to learn about alternative uses, maybe Ill add it back in.
How about that pic of the forward camera view showing us how much of the view the winch takes up?

Here is some of my recovery gear (Factor55) winch (Smittybilt XRC) first aid molle kit and a hi lift jack Base Support flipped upside down and used in conjunction with OEM jack for 37s on 3 inch coliover lift.

Curious. I use most of the things in my gear. I carry several d rings, 2 snatch blocks, 3 or 4 tree straps, two tow straps, shovel, hatchet, knife, compas, t.p., 9 mm, cold weather gear, binoculars, gmrs radio, 12k winch, first aid kit, off road tire chains, flashlights. I will be adding on board air compressor and a foldable saw.

What am I missing?

I do know how to use everything that I carry.
Seem pretty prepared, I did not see you list a tire repair kit?

I too make sure the 9mm “socket” is a part of my kit. I also carry the large 2 foot long zip ties, electrical tape, electrical connectors (butt, spade, ring), fuses, I also have a satellite communicator, I have a ZOLEO, simple to use. Hay Bale String - I actually used this a lot in my Jeep. I would just wind the pieces up and tuck them in somewhere. Really came in handy for tying things, be it from the tent, to the Jeep, on a trailer. Hanging stuff. Of course I have horses so to me it’s a simple thing to grab and takes up no space and weight.
