stuff for removing hard top (3 hooks and 3 ratchiting straps)
clear box (to keep bolts in from top and nuts/fuse from doors)
my footpegs.
work and mechanics gloves
wheel locks
and just in the back my coleman folding shovel which has been used more than i thought XD

Good list, however, make it better and ad an air gage and or mini air compressor, hack saw, vise grips, 20 oz bottle of water, duct tape, matches, a $5 rain poncho and a tow strap

Good point on the air gage! i just ran out there and threw our extra one in there. along with a zippo and some fuel (gota remember to take that out before going back to school in a few days). But i keep a tow rope in the amo when my top is off (i usually wheel with top off) il have to remember that other stuff

I usually keep myself in the Jeep at all times when driving / wheeling

Just kidding

Actually, I keep pretty much everything mentioned above in my rig, but I also carry a full mechanics toolbox kit as well including most socket types, torx / allen bits, a cordless impact, a cordless drill, & spare wiring tools along with some various wire types.

I'm kinda bad when it comes to overkill.

Wow, some really good ideas coming out of this one. Great thread!!!

I also remembered one I didn't mention ... Good quality Jump Start Box, along with some cables just in case the jump start box decides not to cooperate that day

Don't forget a valve stem tool and maybe an extra core or two. Cheap and small. I had a core come loose while airing up on my last trip.
