Due to a lack of a better spot I'll put this here.
Every driver needs to have some kind of Kit for those Road-Side Troubles. So I have gone through the forums and Kits offer'd by different companys And I have Put a list together of items that I feel every member here should have in their daily driver :)

Philips and Standard Screwdrivers
Posted ImageThese don't need to be anything fancy. Just good enough to get any quick fix job done. If you feel so inclined, upgrade to a Multi-Bit Screwdriver.

Duct Tape
Posted ImageEvery handyman's best friend. You'll use it if you go out camping so ya might as well have it on ya 24/7.

Electrical Tape
Posted Image You won't use this as often as the Duct tape but you'll need it for covering things.

Gloves
Posted Image Some simple work gloves just in-case you need to protect your hands.

Flashlight
Posted Image This is a smart item to have no matter what.

extra Bottle Jack (optional)
Posted Image I know that every vehicle came out of the factory with a jack but if your out in the sticks and you need to use a jack sometimes two is better to have.

Zip Ties
Posted Image Now I've seen these used to hold half a car together. and given their size their easy to carry around.

Rags
Posted Image These work great for having something to wipe your hands one. You could get HD hand wipes, but those dry out over time. Cloth can also be used to take something off with out leaving tool marks.

Pen and Paper
Posted Image These two items were in almost every Emergency kit I saw.

x2 Crescent Wrench(s)

Posted Image I carry two of these in my Ammo Can for those bolts that need to be held on both sides.

1984 F-350 XL -- 460in³ -- C6 -- 2WD

Piece of Rope
Posted Image Nothing long, just enough for tieing stuff together.

Map of your area
Posted Image The GPS is great till the battery runs out.

First Aid Kit
Posted Image again, just something to take care of the simple cut, gashes, and punctures.

Tow Strap

Posted Image Hopefully this is only gunna be used to pull your buddy out

Pocket Knife

Posted Image For when you have to cut the rope down to size

Vice Grips

Posted Image Part of the basic 101 kit.

Flares
or reflectors
Posted Image Flares are great for signaling. I put of reflecors because if your on the side of the road, and the area is full of dry grass, adding fire is not so great...

Fire Extinguisher(optional)
Posted Image Now this doesn't fit in my Ammo can with everything else so I have to strap this don next to the can.

Jumper cables

Posted Image Part of the 101 basics.

Fuses
Posted Image Just for when you pull too many amps.

Pliers
Posted Image Part of the man kit.

40MM ammo Can
Posted Image 5.5"x17"x10" is perfect for these items.

And this covers the stuff the I keep with me/recommend to have. Now I know your not going to need to use all these items but you'll be glad you have it when somebody else needs a hand.

Forthe guys that go out wheeling this is just some of what you want to have :)
