    2001 Suburban 2500. I mounted a large Rubbermaid container in the back to keep stuff in. Everything pictured fits in it except the blue water container. I know, its a lot to carry but i dont use the 3rd row seat so i have plenty of room. Up until about 3 and a half years ago i didn't carry much in my vehicles and then after being stranded in the middle of the desert i learned my lesson. The only other thing i did was mount a Serpa holster inside the center console for my G17.


    Contents of the backpack. I've made a bunch of changes since this picture: I no longer carry the cliff bars, i found they didnt keep well in the Arizona heat! I replaced them with Mainstay bars. I also sold my 2 Condor backpacks and replaced this one with a Maxpedition Vulture II. I have also added a change of clothes for my wife and i plus lots of baby items since having our first child.

    Have you got enough antennas on that Passat? :p

    Never can have too many antennas! :) I'm actually down one, I removed the original GPS from the dashboard (that had an external antenna) because the TM-D710 has it's own GPS and I use my iPhone for navigation. :)

    No, we never got the chance. I never was able to make it to any of the meets up your way.

    Now my EDC vehicle is a 1978 Honda CB750.

    Actually, I got most of that when I first started dating my now wife.. (So you can say she knew what she was getting into when she married me.) ;)

    The baby is now 10 months old and doing beautifully! :)

    I know that meter well, don't knock it. I've had it for years and use it often for the job when I'm out in the field. It's smaller and lighter than my Fluke and thus easier to pack in the tool bag. I glued a piece of flexible sheet magnet to the back so I can stick it to any handy metal surface. Got the first one on sale at Harbor Freight for $3, since got 2 more for free (with coupon and purchase of something else) for the vehicles. The one at work gets alkaline batteries (changed once a year, it takes a 9V) and the ones in the vehicles get lithiums (free meter, expensive battery).

    I think i paid $12 for it - at the only auto store open in a large country town a couple of hundred kms from home, and it was the only multimeter they had
    we had some battery issues with the wife's car, so i grabbed a cheap multimeter to see if i could trace the issue - turns out the battery was toast and she hadnt noticed any issues.
    still, it was cheap, it works, and is nice and compact - the lithium cell is a great idea (if i can find one)

    Nice Beast ! - now walk us through the modz !

    i see a set of Silver Supertones, and a primitive/subtle/gorilla lightbar with a little set of hellas, different rims and a set of rallyarmor/roxblokz/gorilla/homemade mudflaps

    I had to give up my 2008 Jeep Commander Limited Hemi 4x4 when I started driving 35 miles each way to work. I purchased a 2012 Focus Hatchback and have loved the gas station ever since. Average 38 on the HW and 32 in the city. I haven't modded it out yet but here are the pics of what I keep in the trunk.

    -Pelican EMS FAK
    -Old pair of shoes
    -Maxpedition Falcon II Get Home Bag
    -Fire extinguisher (Mounted behind the Falcon II)
