Add a gallon of coolant to the list and the tow strap and you should be set to survive world war 3 with a 7.3

Looks like a good collection. With the fuses it always seems like I blow the one I don't have, so just be sure to have at least one of everything, both the big and little ones. I try to keep a can of fix a flat or something in there, mainly because I don't have a spare that is big enough, and sometimes it's a lot easier than trying to jack it up and change a tire in 2ft of snow, and it could get you to a tire store hopefully.

Get some tie wire and baling twine and throw in there too. You can fix serious stuff with enough wraps of either.
