While there have been a lot of bad-ass trucks, new products, and general show car glitter to ogle, the cleverest new product we’ve seen comes from Little Boys Off Road Toys. It’s called the Gear Safe, and it has all the hallmarks of a great piece of expedition gear.
Designed to utilize the space inside the exterior mounted spare tire/wheel on a Wrangler, it keeps recovery gear close at hand, protected from the elements, and secure from theft. While this example shown on the company’s “LJ-8″ (more on that later) has a tire carrier, it can also be mounted just like a factory spare to the tailgate. Available soon through ExpeditionOffRoad.com at a impressively low price point, this needs to go on the Christmas list, boys and girls.
