It looks good.

I would keep a close eye on the water.
The jugs are thin and can puncture easily.
Heat in a vehicle, like summertime, can leach
the plastic, even food grade plastic.
One week shelf life in warm temperatures and rotate.

Water is better stored in 2 liter soda/pop bottles. The bottles are designed to take pressure not like regular plastic water bottles or milk jugs. The soda bottles are actual stackable as well.

I prefer the stack-able round 3ltr bottles from Ozarka.
They are made of the same stuff as a 2ltr coke bottle and rugged.

Good stuff. I'll try to get around to posting my Jeep's EDC soon.

Since you asked for thoughts and suggestions, I'll just list three things included in my kit that I didn't see in yours and let you decide if they're worth having or not. Those three things are:

Military surplus folding shovel. Folds down pretty small and can come in real handy if your car ever gets stuck.

Rain poncho. You never know when you might get stuck in the rain and wet clothes can make life real miserable. Packs down to the size of a softball.

Wool blanket. In case you do get wet or real cold, wool can save the day.

The best thing about these three items is that they can all be found at any military surplus store for dirt cheap. For me, they add extra insurance in case of unforeseen events. Now I noticed you didn't mention a firearm in your kit but maybe you have one on your person? In addition to my daily CCW (a Dan Wesson 1911) I also have a take-down .22 Marlin with some ammo in a rear cargo compartment in the back of the Jeep. I would say a firearm is a must for any prepper's vehicle whether it be your daily carry or a dedicated truck/car gun.

I actually leave my gun at home, I havent felt like a gun is a must in my car kit.
