Channel locks
Creasant Wrench
Screwdrivers(one each)
TamperProof screwdriver combo
Fire Sprinkler head wrenches
Tape measure
Teflon tape
Screwed plugs(various sizes)
Tie wraps

Truck box, gets thrown in when I'm out and about and wrenching

I bought a tool set from Lowes similar to this one. Close out price was $9.95

Then I have assorted PVC and copper pipe with fittings, MAPP gas, solder and flux. I also have a hammer, wood chisels and a box of odds and ends like door hardware, insulation strips, duck tape and filters. I own rentals and find it easier to keep the basics on hand.

On my normal commute I only have a pair of gloves, tire pump, gauge, tow rope, regular rope to tie stuff down with, acouple ratchet straps, some bungee cords, jumper cables, electrical tape, misc fuses, two flash lights, and a knife or two.

Now if I'm towing the Mustang to an event, I bring everything short of the engine crane and stand. Multiple socket / wrench sets, misc hand tools, jack, jack stands, impact gun, spare tires (car & trailer), etc.
