Total noob. Taking jeep off road for the first time (PA trails). I am going with an experienced wheeler but don't want to be a mooch. What minimum gear should you have with you on a typical day time trail run?

Water, season rated clothing, GLOVES, cell phone... cash, VISA, AAA.

Good recovery points, tow hooks, a chain.
Enough food for the day .... plus just in case.

Ask your buddy what he'd like you to carry. Since you are running together, there is little sense in carrying the same stuff.
He may ask you to carry things he doesn't have, or double up on certain things he feels are important.
Since he is leading, that would be a great courtesy. :thumb:

When I wheel with buddies sometimes I carry the steaks, and they carry the beer. Other times they carry the steaks, and I carry the beer. :thumb:
And for the long weekends, we all carry beer.
After all, you can never be too safe... ;)

A spare battery for your cell phone. If you get hopelessly lost, they can always find you as long as your cell phone can respond to a network ping.
