Let’s face it, nobody wants to break down on a ride. You plan with your buddies all week, talk a bunch of sh*t about how bad their RZRs and YXZs are, then BAM! 2 hours into your ride your X3 blows out a ball joint and you’re thinking to yourself, I gotta fix this ASAP! Not to worry, you took Brett from UTVRepair.com’s advice and brought enough tools to get yourself out of this situation and back to the trailer.
If you want to put your own tool kit together, we used this tool bag and found it fit really well under the seat of our Can Am X3
If you want one that’s pre-loaded with everything you need, a lot of people like Boxo Tools.
These are really cheap and can be a game changer for ease of changing belts. You can find them cheap on Amazon here!

Jack – Whether you’re using a nice AGM or Pro Eagle jack, or keeping it budget friendly with a scissor jack, these are relatively compact and can make your life a lot easier in the case of a flat or a breakdown
First Aid Kit – keeping a well stocked first aid kit can mean the difference between life and death on the trail…Rollovers happen and oftentimes people stick their hands and feet out which is where most of the serious injuries occur.
A well stocked cooler – Whether you got lunch ready or your favorite drinks, having a cooler on the trail is definitely essential. The AO coolers are pretty durable.
Best Impact Guns – Power tools aren’t a necessity, but they to make things a whole lot quicker and easier on the trail, if you have the extra room; think about bringing it along.
A spare tire – We’re not sure if any manufacturer includes a spare tire in any side by side, but they should.
Here are some cool ways people store their tools for inspiration!
