    What stuff do you carry in your boot?

    My list –

    Jack

    5ltr Fuel

    5ltr water

    Oil

    Powersteering fluid

    Brake fluid

    Spare tyre

    Tools (screwdrivers, socket set,spanners,vise grips, hose clamps,etc)

    Rags

    Different length fuel hoses

     

    Who carries radiator hoses, fan belts, wheel chocks, etc ?

    Is there anything else crucial that I should be carrying in my boot ?

     

    Cheers,

    Depends on what you are doing.

    I carry a mobile phone and AA card.

    Obviously the regular crap that comes in the boot from the factory + high vis jacket, tow rope and jumper leads and some spare fuses in the glove compartment. A paper clip is also handy to check fault codes.

    A pinhole leak in a hose can be temporarily fixed with some electrical tape and a hose clamp.  If I’m going long distance than some basic tools.

    How unreliable is your car VH?

    I don’t carry anything extra aside from a few fuses. I have RACV total care, anything more and I call.

    I made up (yes i am borderline ocd) a tool roll with pretty much every spanner needed to anyhing but an engine swap.  If i go on a cruise i chuck in jumper leads.  But every drive is phone and wallet

    I’m surprised that not much more then your RAA/RACV card and mobile phone is on the only thing carried, hmm…

    I would rather be safe then sorry and carry more then needed then not needed.

    Cheers,

    Not much haha

     

    Basic phillips & flat blade screwdriver,shifter,rag maybe few small tools that fit in centre console & mobile phone + towtruck business card in case bastard breaks down…

     

    No spare wheels etc as 15×10 3″ backspace & tubs means most wheels dont fit.

    Yea I modded (cut down) my spare wheel well so that I had more room for the varex muffler.  So I have a space saver off a later Commie.  I keep the tool roll inside the wheel centre so its all nice and neat.
