O/T What\'s in your tool box?

What's in your toolbox ON/IN your truck??(not the one in the basement/garage) What tools and such do you carry with you all the time? Just curious. I haven't had a in bed box since 2 yrs ago when I first got my Toyota(I took it out shortly afterwards), and now my Dodge has one so I wanna know what all would be good to have. So tell me what's in your box?

Re: O/T What\'s in your tool box?

gosh I feel so unprepared compared to some of these folks, but in my tool bag I carry some sockets, wrenches, screw drivers, tape (duct and electrical). I also carry a big-a$$ maglite and a couple quarts each of tranny fluid and motor oil. In my gear bag, I have a tow strap, jumper cables, a couple of bungee cords, leather gloves and some rags. I think that's about it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
