    Be Prepared: The Ultimate Ute Tool Box

    A lot of people today keep absolutely nothing in the back of their Ute. After all, they either don’t have enough space to carry all the equipment they need, or they know that placing items in a Ute bed can quickly lead to damage caused by bouncing tools and sliding equipment. Unfortunately, having nothing to help you out of a tight space can be particularly dangerous when you use your Ute regularly for business purposes.

    If you’re constantly out on the road, either for the sake of your company, or your adventurous spirit, it’s important to make sure that you’re always prepared. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best items to keep in the ultimate Ute toolbox, in the back of your CVS service body.

    Solutions for Repair and Maintenance

    There’s nothing quite like breaking down at the side of the road somewhere in the middle of Australia to realize that you’re in desperate need of some preparation. Your CVS service body should provide you with plenty of extra space to store the things you need, so make sure that you keep these items locked away:

    • A Spare tire: Your spare tire should be carried with you at all times, along with a tire iron and jack. Make sure that your tire is in good condition, and that you know how to change a flat on your Ute if you’re caught in a sticky situation.
    • Tire sealer and inflator: Make sure that you have something available that can plug a leak temporarily when you don’t have a spare you can use. It’s possible to pop more than one tire at once, after all.
    • Jumper cables: Remember that dead batteries happen to the best of us. Take the time to familiarize yourself with your engine and what you’ll need to do to restart your vehicle in the case of an emergency.

    Survival and Safety

    If you’re in a business that constantly has you visiting new places, or you’re the kind of person who likes to spend their free time exploring the outback, then you need to make sure that you’re prepared for the worst. With a little look, you’ll already have an emergency go back set up, but you should make sure that it’s packed with all the items that you need to get out of a dangerous situation. For instance, your CVS service body kit should include:

    • A multi-tool
    • First-aid kit
    • Flashlight
    • Matches or fire starter
    • Flashlight
    • Water bottles
    • Weather radio

    Comfort Accessories

    Since a custom CVS service body will provide you with plenty of extra space in the back of your Ute, it makes sense that you might include additional items in your preparation pack that will help to keep you and your family comfortable in case of an emergency. For instance, you might consider holding:

    • A blanket
    • Change of clothes
    • Device charger
    • Emergency money
    • Umbrella
    • Tissues

    Ultimately, the best thing you can do for your own safety, and the safety of your Ute, is think carefully about how you use your vehicle, and what you do when you’re out on the road. Evaluating your specific needs carefully will help you to choose accessories that are useful for your specific circumstances.

    While the ultimate Ute toolbox will differ from one driver to the next, the items above should ensure that you have everything you need to get out of a tight spot if you find yourself struggling on the side of the road.
