The Best-Bug Out Vehicle Accessories
Once you have a Bug-Out Vehicle, there may be certain modifications that we suggest to properly execute the functions needed in the backcountry. This will include excellent Off-Road Tires, which you can find on our Shop for Tires page here.
After all, we’re preparing to use this truck when the SHTF, so wherever that might be, any of these camping accessories are going to come in handy.
Lightbars and Work Lights
Getting clear functional LED flood lighting on the side and back of the truck is going to help a lot. There might be circumstances when, instead of bugging out, you may like to lend a helping hand to a neighbor or your community, whether it’s after a terrible storm or the much-needed reconstruction and assistance after a disaster. Because many of these accidents will trigger blackouts, having overnight work lighting on the side and back of the cab can transform the truck into a workstation. When you are outdoors and are setting up camp or at your bug out location, these lights give you the chance to have all-around visibility to ensure the area is clear, and to allow you to see your surrounding area to set up camp at night. A couple of good options for work lights on your truck are Rigid Industries or ODX Lighting.
Naturally, anything you can do to gain additional storage will help. Any decent bug-out vehicle is expected to have roof racks. They are the best place to store extra water, jerry cans, solar panel systems, food containers or firewood. Whatever you pack, decide if you need it during your journey or if it is to be used when you arrive.
When you go off-grid, you will need some supplies. If staying at home is not an option you’ll want to take plenty of supplies with you when you leave the city and most of it will be food, water, and fuel. When it comes to water and fuel, the jerry cans are some simple additions you can make to your off-road truck. Our Calgary Accessories Shop is where you can buy the best new camping jerry cans. They should be specifically labeled ‘water’ or ‘fuel’ so as not to confuse their contents.
So this isn’t completely required, but if you’re like me and you love getting things well organized, tactical front seat covers from Smittybilt are the ideal thing to use in your bug-out machine. Even if you’re not carrying personal security items, these in-car organizers are for your outdoor tools, survival gear, first aid equipment, knives, communication accessories and snack bars for the family and yourself while you’re on the road.
For me, I’m am regularly outdoors in the Rockies as I enjoy camping, hiking, and outdoor exploration, and when I first chose a vehicle for that purpose, I didn’t even think of a bug-out vehicle. So, as you can see, the two go hand-in-hand, and whether you’re a hunting enthusiast, a fishing enthusiast, or just love the outdoors like me, one of these vehicles will give you everything you need to do that, as well as acting as a bug-out vehicle if you need to.
