Just be smart about it. It's easy to get carried away and next thing you know you'll be carrying your whole damn garage with you and your Jeep will be a pig.
Simple socket kit/auto repair kit is great to have because it has all the basic tools plus a lot of other basic tools. They come in nice carrying cases that store easy.
Simple replacement parts like serp belt and radiator hoses are essential. Other things like shafts are great, but not always necessary.
Basic recovery equipment like d-rings and straps.
First aid kit. There are some nice kits at places like Target that come in plastic waterproof cases that fit under the seat. Regardless of off road I always have the first aid kit under the drivers seat.
food/water should be obvious.
Finally, remember you're going Jeeping, not preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

Going downhill, the gas was trickling down on us and gathering on the floor pan.
I was clinging to that fire extinguisher like no other.

You can find these at Pep Boys, or anywhere on the web... Amazon, Ebay, etc. Expect to pay ~$60 - $80.
These will fill one 33" tire from 15 to 30 psi in 3 minutes. You can air-up and be on the road in about 15 minutes from start to finish. Not super fast, but reasonable if you plan for it.
I've had one for almost 10 years now, works great.
Be sure you get the model with the battery clips, not the cigarette lighter plug. Lots of info on the web if you google the part numbers.

Recovery strap and not a tow strap. No tow straps with metal hooks!!!!
Hammer, wrenches, sockets, 36mm socket 13mm 12 pt socket (TJ's hub sockets), u joints, pliers, duct tape, ratchet straps, block of wood for your jack to sit on and the list goes on and on.
Be prepared and what kind of Jeep?

|Finazzo007||I've keep a small hand saw on me at all times. Just a $15 dollar one from home depot is what I have. Had to use it 3 times and its real handy for cutting out large logs that can't be drove over.|

I'll make sure I have extra fluids for the vehicle too.

|Aseventyfive||I have 33" tires. Do I need a compressor that is rated to fill 33" or should I get one that can fill 35"?|

In addition to the things listed I bring some wd40 and electric connection cleaner. My used air filter. Tools to pull spark plugs. Trash bags and extra snacks just in case.
Depending on the trail I'll also bring some oil extra arb air line.

Make sure your snorkel stays sealed to your airbox.
Search for "death of a rubicon" on YouTube. That park claimed a "victim" haha

A tire plug and patch kit is something I always carry, as well as a small compresor. Actually I have a huge aluminum box full of tools & spare parts but I wouldn't want to be out there without a way to fix a second flat tire. More than once I've had to plug tires, especially for others. Safety Seal makes very good tire plug kit.
Other misc. stuff without getting into the 100 item list that is easy to create... spare tire stems, spare tire stem valves. I also carry my old radiator hoses & serpentine belt as spares. A roll of duct tape can be handy, a first-aid kit and fire extinguisher should be considered required, and a tube of JB-Weld is a good idea.
There are hundreds of potential items you can carry but there's no need to get overly concerned on a green trail on your first time out. The list of parts you said you'd be carrying was already very good.
Hopefully you already have a CB radio, that is the universal means most Jeepers use to talk on the trail. Have fun, be sure to air down enough.

Water for you
Water for the jeep(just in case)
