Lighting Options

We went through and replaced all the stock lights with Raxiom LED from Extreme Terrain. Raxiom makes a solid light for the money and we have had no issues with them so far. Install is a pain, but worth the headache and you’ll have that with any light.

For night driving we wanted little more light and the Oracle Skid Plate light seemed like a solid option. It is discrete, lights up the road or trail ahead and when paired with good ditch lights offers solid coverage.

For ditch lights, we went with a pair of the Ironman 4×4’s basic universal 3″ LED light. It was actually a takeoff from our old JK and have been running strong for 4 years. They put out a very nice 2850 lumens each are not obviously obtrusive. Mounts are courtesy of Amazon.

Cooking Out of a Jeep Wrangler

If you are off the beaten path, cooking out of the car is essential. Why compromise on good food.

Primus Campfire Table

This easy to travel with table is sturdy enough to cook on and is easy to wash down and packs up small. Not the sturdiest table on the market, but always handy to have around. The Primus Campfire Table is perfect for cooking on, light meal prep, a game or two and eating.

What’s ALWAYS In Our Jeep Wrangler

Always in our Wrangler is a first aid kit, and there aren’t many better than the My Medic MYFAK Pro. The MYFAK Pro features over 140 life-saving first aid supplies and also has a durable Hypalon MOLLE panel for easy storage and adjustability. It runs $300 but is a nice sense of security.

Maybe a little bit of an overkill, but I always have a Hults Bruk Agdor 28 Montreal Felling Axe. This axe is intended for dealing with small to larger sized trees. Perfect for trail clean-up and firewood. I also have a small Aneby axe as well that measures 20″.

Not that we are we are hitting the off-road park where fire extinguishers are mandatory most of the time, it does make sense to carry a fire extinguisher. Weather your cooking on the tailgate or have camp fire go astray, you’ll be thankful. What is really nice, companies like H3R Performance are making some great mounts for them, where they are secure and accessible.
