On my XJ I removed the lower rear panels in the cargo area. I've got my tire plug kit, rain gear, climbing rope, 2 or 3 quarts of oil, rags and a bunch of other stuff into the cavity thats behing the plastic. I keep spare parts like the sepentine belt zip tied under the hood by the fire wall. Non- flamable fluid like radiator stop leak is all up under the hood as well. Spare drive shaft is tethered to the side of the seat frame and hi-lift fits under the passenger seat if you pop out the rear lower cuision to get it in and out. My last rig had the spare drive shafts mounted underneath along side the frame rail. Goodwill and thrift stores have all sorts and sizes of bags , purses, makeup bags and such that can be bought for little $. I keep spare bolts and various tools and things in the bags I bought. So what if I pull out my pink makeup bag with hearts and flowers on it to retrieve an allen wrench. I know where it is and can get a complete set quickly. FWIW Lucas oil comes in very thick plastic bottles that don't rupture as fast as other brands if you keep oil inside the cab. It was lot of work to creativly store all the crap I carry but was well worth the time to store the stuff so I have extra room for when I need it and I can find what I need without tearing thru all of my stuff.
