    make sure they are your "cheap tools" that way if someone breaks into the tool box you don't lose anything of "real" value. Maybe some tow straps, jack stands, emergency road kit, flash light, fishing supplies if you fish, beer, ice.

    Jumper cables, tire plug kit, plug in air pump, WD-40, duct tape, tire pressure gauge, maybe quart of oil and anti-freeze. I know there is probably more that I didn't list and not all are necessary to have with you but its better to be prepared.

    Block of wood to stabilize your jack on dirt, Axe, tarp, coil of rope, coveralls.

    Ammunition for a roof-mounted, belt-fed 50 caliber machine gun with paddle triggers mounted on the steering column. :rofl:

    This is why I have an SUV, a bed tool box is just never enough. :lol:As a Boy Scout you're supposed to have a ten essentials kit i.e. first aid kit, matches, rope, rain gear, emergency stuff, and what not. I just bring my truck its the one essential kit. :tongue:

    bad the roof mounted .50 cal is so much easier to use with a CROWS system integrated into the in dash navigation.

    on a serious note, everyone has already hit on the important stuff. one thing ill add is a couple bottles of drinking water. you never know when you might want to have it to drink, wash etc.
