My list of off road supplies needed for every and any off road trip

By Robert B.

While these off road supplies are only requests, the only thing required on any off road trip is a sound mechanical vehicle and ATLEAST one other friend WITH a vehicle.

If either of you get stuck, then you you would be able to pull each other out.

But I do HIGHLY recommend the following list of off road supplies to be taken on any off road and/or camping trip.

If you are looking to purchase off road supplies and gear, be sure to check out my Jeep Gear section.

Yes, this may seem like a lot of supplies, but when divided among atleast two vehicles it is not a lot off road supplies.

Do not be overwhelmed by this list of off road supplies. For smaller trips, not every single one of these supplies will be needed. This list of off road supplies is at the extreme end of the spectrum, for a long off road trip. But it does give you a rough idea of what you may need for a shorter trip.

I added these off road supplies to my list because it was these supplies that kept on reappearing on various websites I found. If this list of off road supplies helps you with a trip, or you feel it is inadequate, let me know by contacting me.
