If you are like many individuals in Denver, CO you probably have a nice collection of items in your trunk. Only problem is, most of these items you don’t really need. Some papers from the office, a few kids toys, and the set of golf clubs from when you drove down to Arizona for golf. Well, not only is all of this dropping down your fuel economy, but there are better uses for the trunk space. So, clear out your trunk and make way for a few of these tools.
Nothing is worse than letting your car run to heat up, only to have the battery die out on you. Now you have a dead battery in the middle of a snow storm. Instead of abandoning the car or searching out someone to help you out, AFI Insurance recommends having a self-jumper battery. This is a portable charge with a pair of jumper cable pliers coming out of it. This gives you a jump readily available, you just need to charge it up ever 30 days or so.
Sure, your vehicle came with a jack, but it usually isn’t all that great, especially if you have a larger vehicle like an SUV or truck. Instead, invest in an improved jack. There are nice lever action jacks that go up easily, can hold more weight and can lift different areas of the vehicle.
Bag of Salt/Kitty Litter
The bag of road salt can come in handy if you’re ever stuck or if you are parked on an incline and just can’t gain traction to get out. Additionally, even if you don’t have a cat, kitty litter adds traction to a slick surface without melting it. Both are extremely helpful while driving in Denver.
