So what I am asking from you experts here is what you all have in your trail boxes? What are the must haves? What are the would be nice to haves? Finally what can i leave at home. I dont want to take crap I dont need. Thanks guys

    well I got 2 boxes on my truck. One houses all my air equipment(compressors, tanks, air tools, fill hose). The other has spare u-joints, tranny fluid, oil, spare shafts, a few yokes, straps, snatch blocks, hi-lift, and some rain gear.

    A simple way to carry only what you need in tools is to work on the truck from it's own tool box. Granted, in the beginning you'll be kinda skinny on everything you need, but eventually you'll be able to do most every common repair from that toolbox.
