Lets see.... Tow Rope, (jack stand and all that stuff), a basic little tool kit, duct tape, electrical tape, matches, large towel, maglight, 3 smaller hand towels, scissors, exacto knife, little first aid kit, and a hat. All of that fits inside the two rear storage bins(since i dont have 4 doors/jump seats i have the storage bin things)
