Well I went out and bought what i think is all the recovery gear i need for the truck today. I got:

Hi-Jack extreme
wide base for hijack
tow strap
2 tow hooks for front, am going to bolt them on soon
d hook receiver
HD tire repair kit
9' of 3/8 70 grade chain with clevus hook on one end, and chain hook on the other
have a good spade shovel

I guess i probably need a ccompressor as well, of course bringing tools blankets fire starters, and spare parts as required heh.

What else does everyone else have in their basic kits?

Thanks.

you sound like you're set, but if you're looking to get more, think about a come-along. a hi-jack will work, but they will only drag your truck the legnth of the jack. maybe get some ether and learn how to re-seat a tire bead?

search the board, and you'll find more. this has been covered a few times, i think there's a sticky somewhere

You've got what I currently carry, except for a tree saver strap, but since you don't have a winch or hand winch its irrelevant. You might want to consider a hand winch, come-a-long, or something similiar, not only usefull for self recovery but good for pulling axles back into position after a broken spring center pin or control arm failure.

My camping gear contains a hatchet, but good call on a full sized axe. I was actually thinking of getting a mid sized chainsaw. Can clear almost anything with a 2' bar and some time if you need to LOL

Looks pretty good.

You never seem to have everything, but I started carrying an extra tug strap, and I always carried 3-7 clevis'. One time I killed a strap and a tree saver, and we were lacking in the clevis department because most people only had one or two.

I carried a foldable bow saw, and my wheeling buddy had the chainsaw.
