No brainer i guess. Fuel filter. And a strap wrench to open the cap. Had one plug up years ago on my Ranger. Since then i allways keep one in the Powerstroke and in the boat.

Just get a smart car and stick it in the bed.

Good spare tire, some gunk to fix a flat and air it up, tow strap, jack, wood to put under the jack, extra fluids, possibly a spare air filter if your in a dusty environment, belt, UV joint. Hammer to beat on stuff, good assortment of sockets and wrenches, first aid kit, water, blankets.

Something that I never thought I needed till I got it was an air system. I never leave the street but I find myself using my air on the truck all the time! Airing up trailer tires, my airbags, tractor tires, mower tires etc. Spend some money and get an air system! they are awesome!! I am not like others, I live with the idea of I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it! Whenever I go on a trip I always bring lots of tools, spare parts, fluids, filters, hoses/clamps/adapters (mostly for my VO setup) Air fittings/hoses, charger for the phone, laptop with AE installed and connector... Yea I am a little paranoid!

depending on whatyou call off roading, I would say a set of tools, both ratchets and sockets as well as standard wrenches and vice grips. U-joints are a must and every vehical I own that has manual lockouts has a spare one in it. a 4way tire iron cause the stock tire equipment sucks. tire plugs and an air source (i dont trust tire slime). Fuel filter, coolant (H2O), Oil, trans fluid if an auto. Last but not least as much as I hate them a good old fashion high lift jack.

For recovery I like to have at least 20ft each of strap, cable and chain with good hooks and anchor points.

All that and it never hurts to have another truck and a trailer at the trail head to get home.......

Water and/or coolant. I also bring a pack of matches. Never know when you'll need to start a campfire.
