so far our rhino tool kit includes a compressor (it has been used two times), wrenches, tire repair kit, extra fuel filter, zip ties, and electric volt meter. we put the stuff in a rubbermaid container that fits under the drivers seat.... we want to make sure we have the basics covered now that we are going on longer trail rides...What all do you have in your kit...

I have everything you listed plus a small bottle jack (i carry a spare on some rides), and jumper cables. I just recently ordered an extra fuel pump too. A while back my bro-in-laws fuel pump went out and there was no starting the rhino. Luckily it was at his house but it would have sucked if we were on a ride.

Oh yeah, almost forgot. I carry extra fuses, a couple flares for starting fires with wet wood and a bunch of those .99 cent emergency rain ponchos. I also recently put a big pair of vise grips in. Someone on here posted that their steering wheel broke and they used vise grips to steer back to camp.

I carry any tools I might need, with an electric impact very handy, zip ties, slime and pump, first aid kit, snatch block, tire plugs, extra parts, tie rod ends, spark plug, extra bolts of various sizes, extra studs and lug nuts. Got most of the ideas at the rally when thats the items that broke on most people rides. Of course they were all polaris so not saying much there.

benzito I'm surprised you are the only one so far that listed a spare spark plug. I learned that one the hard way; don't leave home without it now!

Mine is similar to others on here as well with that addition. Also have some shop rags as well. SOmetimes to wipe mud off of headlights, me whatever! I might add a small syphon of some sort though. On one trip I had my fuel pump either go out or alost prime from the fuel tank and I could not get started. I was low on gas going down an EXTREMELY steep grade and it stalled and would not fire. Had to be towed back to camp and it would not start without the fuel pump being re-assembled and then a drip bag of gas to get the engine to fire and then pull fuel through to regain it's prime. Oddly enough starter fluid wouldn't keep it going long enough to catch prime. It was a crappy situation, torential rains thrown into the mix.

TP is MANDITORY in each glove box and carry on bag.... but after Mondays run to Silverwood/Miller Canyon... I was so happy that we had such a complete kit~ that trip was starting to look like a bad gilligans island rerun...first the rhino rear tire tear at the edge of the rim...lucky we carry 2 spares.... took longer to carry the cut of wood to lift the axle (SINCE WE HAVE NOT YET PURCHASED A BOTTLE JACK~~ TO DO).... the quad tire tore the sidewall next to the rim on a rock about 15 miles from camp... no spare so we used the tire plugs and the strap and got it reseated and rode straight back to camp.... (INNER TUBES FOR THE QUAD AND RHINO... TO DO~ and a spark plug)
