Hey guys!!
Every time I bring my Jeep out to the mountains, it seems increasingly apparent that I should have some sort of equipment box filled with essentials for first-aid or roadside emergencies. You can find a lot of kits that have already been prepared by companies for your average, haphazard driver but I'm inclined to put together my own collection of gear for any sort of unexpected crisis because it will be compromised of stuff I actually need and probably cheaper than being ripped off by purchasing some corporate package.

So far, these are the lists I've come up with...
First-aid: Hot pack, Neosporin (and q-tips to apply it), Gauze pads, Ace bandage, Cloth Tape, Vaseline, Assorted band-aids (standard, knuckle, butterfly), Tweezers, Aspirin
Roadside: Winch, Recovery shovel, Flashlight, Gloves

Sort of similar to how people regularly keep tissues, chapstick, a phone charger, etc in their cars! Any recommendations or advice?

All depends on how prepared you want to be, and your wallet depth. You can get simple first aid kits all the way up to full trauma kits. Also anything from simple jumper cables or a jumper battery to tow strap, tire repair kit, tools and assorted vehicle bolts, etc.

Toilet paper, roll of paper towels, duct tape, epoxy that you mix up, gallon of water, bug spray, a clean old T-shirt to use as bandages/wipes, cheap light weight tarp (cover, lay on it in the mud, put parts on so they are out of the mud...)
