Tool Box for wheeling trips

I figured I would put together a little tool box to just keep in my jeep. I have screw drivers, wrenchs and sockets up to 15/16ths,Cresent wrenches, Vice grips, Pry bar, pipe wrench, 3lb sledge hammer, Duct tape, Electric tape, Wire, wire strippers, Knifes, Zip ties, Tester light.

Is there anything you folks use a lot when working on your jeep? A certain size socket or something you just like to have around maybe? Thank You for reading!

and a first aid kit is handy when using tools and beer at the same time.

Ratchet straps, rope, mix of nuts and bolts, bungee cords, wd40, pry bar

These are more for rigging up trail fixes though. I just carry a basic set of hand tools

As I rebuilt mine I took the good parts cleaned and put them back in the boxes plugs rotor cap wires tie rod ends with new cotter keys and fluids. Full set of tools along with recovery gear first aid kit paper towels rags trash can liner. I haven't needed a thing other than my TP roll so far but I did use one of my brake lines and fluid on another TJ on the trail. Probably overkill but wise. No back seat. Cooler with enough food and drink for the night and lots of winter clothes. I just wish I had a couple of trail spare axles for my D35. I am looking but no luck on any used ones here in Vegas.

I run 3 toolboxes in mine.

#1 - 223 ammo can complete with 2 of each size socket, 2 of each size wrench, pliars, a few adjustable wrenches.

#2 - 223 ammo can complete with snips, cutoffs, zip ties, tape, locktite, u-joints, an assortment of nuts and bolts in commons sizes (all grade 8), 2 flares, first aid kit, engineers hammer.

#3 - 40mm grenade can complete with 3 tow straps, tree savers, hi-lift base, gloves, snatch block, foldable axe, usb-connected stand alone battery, jumper cables, extra lug nuts and "stuff" (which could be anything I think I need).

After my new rear bumper gets done and I have more places to mount things, you can add 5 gallons of water, 15 gallons fuel, a full set of standard synthetic fluids (tranny, engine oil, gear oil) and whatever else seems appropriate.

Yeah u-joints, fluids, torx, flares and first aid are definitely going in there. I need to expand my nuts and bolts collection. I would really like to have spare axles for the rear but I would have to come across a good deal on them. I have yukons but when I lock it up it it would be nice to have spares...

I have some recovery gear. About 80ft of straps, 2 come alongs(4ton & 2ton), Hi-lift, Shovel, pulaski and a few D-rings. I need tree savers. My father in law gave me a 8k warn but it needs solenoids and mounted...

I like what you guys have added so far, Keep 'em coming

I have all sorts of stuff; but these are the tools we've had to use in the past year alone out on the trail to save a fellow jeeper

Battery jump box, dead jeep
Snatch straps, stuck jeep
Jumper Cables, dead jeep after charge of bat. box was used up
Cresent Wrench to tighten alternator after loosing a belt
jack stands to change wheel hub in a gas station parking lot
35mm socket purchased for wheel hub
breaker bar
hi-lift jack AND stock scissor jack to hold up axle while working on hub
TIRE PLUGS
battery powered air pump
3/4 thin walled socket for lug nuts
mechanics wire to hold exhaust from rubbing on front driveshaft after coming loose on a trail
emergency flashers to alert oncoming ORV traffic that the trail was partially blocked

and... the two way radios and CB is priceless. I fell a little behind once and there were two forks in the trail, lots of brush could not see 20 feet ahead. Quickly I hollared "left or right" they replied "left at both forks" I was golden...
