Absolutely!! One in every vehicle I drive, incluiding my TJ. How to use it without instructions, well taking a first aid class usually helps, just 3 1/2 hours of your time.

Let me know if you need one, I teach that :insane:

:offtopic: Could be something to discuss at one of our meetings. Go through 30 minute "training" class on how to administer First aid and ALS. Maybe go over the most common or the the most likely injuries to occur on the trails. Heatstroke, SNAKEBITES, dehydration, fractures, etc..... First aid kits and speculation don't save lives, knowledge does. Also might be an idea to discuss in the next meeting to find out who has training and to what degree / experience. Someone mentioned they have a nurse, MrSig you have some basic training from the Gov. right?!, I was EMT and Paramedic certified up until a few years ago , etc.... Just in case something was to happen, no matter where you were in the formation, you could get attention or answers quickly before the issue became more serious. I'm in the process of beefing up my bag every week. :question: Nothing I can think of, other than being run over, that I wouldn't be able to stablize immediately on the trail until the Tramahawk arrived.

When I had my F-250 I used to carry my Combat Medic bag in the bag.... until someone 5-fingered it away... I miss it... Full Surgical, with IV and Ringer's. It even had the NBC autosyringe kit.

Now in my TJ I have a small kit in the glove box, and a larger custom one strapped under the back seat... I plan on getting my Combat Medic bag again... just don't feel like dropping $100 right now

I carry two. I keep a well stocked one in the dry box on the jeep and a small one in a day-pack in case I have to go on foot for help or something. I would like to build a bigger one for the dry box. We are bringing in a first aid trainer for our supervisors. It has been a long time since I have been through the course. I am guilty of neglect. I'd say I would not be comfortable helping someone with major problems without reading the instructions.
