necessary tools while trail riding

What are yalls opinions? I Have a small list of things that are a must have while our riding. Id like to hear every ones input, because I'm sure I forgot some things.

Good jack, i have an old tractor jack that works great aka hi lift jack. They are very versatile and dont take up much space.

Spare tire And patch kit if ya get 2 flats

Tools. I carry enough to repair the whole truck lol.

Zip ties,duct tape and electrical tape...those fix all.

Battery cables


I know I'm missing something, lets hear some input

Some great ideas. And how did i forget about a tow strap. Actually bought a new one the other day as my old one had worn out. Now what exactly are radiator clamps? As in the hose clamps?

My tools and parts stay back at camp, other than some tire plugs, pair of pliers and a screw driver. I do make sure to carry a strap and a shackle. Depending on where we are wheeling and if no one in our group has OBA, I might toss in my Nitrogen tank, just in case. My main concern to have packed is tunes, snacks, plenty of frosty beverages, water and a couple gatorades.

Very basic tools,a first aid kit, strap. Those all stay in the buggy.
Cooler content changes depending on the run.
Also carry a backpack with assorted personal comfort items just in case. Those include goggles,bandana,spare key, and who knows what else. Again, a lot depends on the run.

For me, it all depends on how far we are from camp. However, I always carry some extra fluids, basic tool bag and full cooler of cold dranks...

For the carbed chevy guy extra gas so you can put it in your windshield washer tank and run the line into your carb so you can get off the trail when your fuel pump dies in the middle of no where

Ive got a ammo box with a mix of my "junk " tools...All my good shiny stuff stays at home...This way I can loan them out and not worry about loosing sockets and wrenches when they get mixed in with all the other loaner tools that end up getting passed out and around during a trail fix...Honestly i have alot of cheap harbor freight wrenchs and a mix of old sockets, electrical tape, plyers, small prybar, rubber mallet, few nuts and bolts, and few spare cheap ratchets...and Courtney and 90k5 can voucher for my 40 Harbor Frieght screwdrivers!!...

As I brake more stuff, Ill develop and pack a better kit to address those areas that keep braking...
