The other day, I had a screw in my tire. I was on the way to work, and of course no one was open to plug it so I had to drive home on the donut and DIY. It was, of course, a cold sleety day and I got really fed up with the Subaru-supplied tool kit. That lug wrench is a joke.
So, I thought about what the rally guys do, and I'm pretty sure I want to put together a better roadside kit. I looked up a few things on the glorious interweb, and I'm not ready to go as aggressive as a "real" rally kit. So far, my list is:
Folding Lug Wrench
Tire Plug Kit
Random replacement parts (bulbs, etc)
Sturdy rollup bag
I'm looking for suggestions on sources for this stuff. I'm curious about better jacks, I don't want the weight of a bottle jack, and I'm not crazy about the Subaru scissor jack (too slow, dammit). Has anyone seen the ratchet jacks anywhere? Also, how about a foldable fuel container? I'm trying to keep this compact enough to fit in the tire well, so I don't sacrifice trunk space.
