    I am posting this hear because it applies to anyone with a car on this forum.

    What do you keep in your trunk? Many of us don't trailer our cars to events and take our SRTs on the road. What do you keep in your trunk incase you happen to become stranded or need to do a quick repair? Or have you not even considered it?

    Myself:
    *I have a wrecking bar
    *mag light
    *2 bottles of 50/50 antifreeze
    *1 replacement belt
    *a replacement oil drain plug (yes it has happened before where I needed one, once but that was once too many times)
    *1 gallon of distilled water
    *5 quarts of oil
    *2 blankets
    *.38 snub nosed s&w with 50 rounds

    I do keep some bunjee cords since stuff slides around in the back of the jeep, 46 bulb LED light, air compressor (since we dont have a spare tire-came with runflats-horrible tire) plug kit for tires, cologne for my mojo, and my stock headlight bulbs in case my hids take a crap on me.

    Spare oil, tranny fluid, windshield washer fluid, a funnel, shop towels, lots of water bottles and the stuff that came with the car (emergency flat fix kit), one of those roadside emergency kits, some blankets, etc. A phone charger to keep the phone ready, Marc, my doctor, my service manager and Big O on speed dial, etc.

    I also keep children's CDs in the disc changer to keep the kid calm, as well as plenty of children's books in the back for her to look at. Also keep a stash of quick acting glucose gel in case I have an insulin reaction and some children's benedryl in case she has an allergic reaction to something. So far, just eggs, peanuts and cats. I also make sure to always always check my insulin pump reservoir before going anywhere and to always wear some sort of medic alert just in case and have my blood test kit stocked and handy.

    I got a lot more to think about than just the car.

    Bodies... lots of bodies... actually mostly just my golf clubs because I'm too lazy to take them in and out unless Ralph's working on my ride.

    As little as possible, I once ruined a fender from the inside while going bananas on a twisty road and forgot the torisionbar lying in the trunk, empty accept for things bolted down...
    But I´ll definitly consider the "Trunk monkey"!:bigwink:

    Man I would have figured you would have had some form of mean BOB (Bug Out Bag) but I guess when you are your own weapon you don't need it.

    I also forgot my 10" sub and amp but yeah that wont help me unless I am trying to bribe people in mexico...
