Good stuff to have

Bored at work right now and was trying to think of some good stuff to always keep in the truck at all times like certain tools stuff for quick fixes and things like that. Since the 6.0 has a tendency to be sketchy sometimes anyone have some good suggestions?

By the look of your signature your pretty well covered for the major 6.0 issues. Good set of sockets and a good complement of hand tools with some fuses, SAP tape, assortment of wire connectors, spare bulbs, small compressor and plugs plus a heavy duty tow/recovery sling would be a good start.

I keep socket set, screwdrivers, wrench set, allen set, used serpentine belts, fuses,IC boots,flares,fire extinguisher, head lights, oil and fuel filters for daily driving. When going on camping trips or Canada fishing, I take extra radiator hoses, fuel lines, metric/standard nuts and bolts, hose clamps and what ever else I can think of, just in case!

A basic set of tools (with sockets that go bigger than an inch), flares, jumper cables, water, snacks, blanket, spare clamps and a code scanner. And, a smart phone to access FTE when something happens! ( so I can get a hold of M-chan68, bismic, Lilpooh and all the rest. Better than AAA)

(No use having all the tools if I am not sure what the heck is wrong.)

SAP tape is Self Almalgamating Plastic tape. Seals to itself when stretched half it's original width and amalgamates to itself. I've used it over the years to repair fuel lines and radiator hoses and wiring that has been cut or compromised while off roading. It also waterproofs electrical connections. As for the connectors a small assortment of crimp connectors and wire just in case. I had some mice take up residence in Thunderbay Ontario one hunting season and chewed the hell out of the wiring under the hood. Started the truck alt lamp on checked under the hood found a nest moved it and voila chewed wiring. For those who know hunting camps up North I was 40KM/25Miles back in the bush. So over the years it's got me out of some binds. If you don't venture out of bounds I guess you don't need it. But if your gonna better call on your McGiver skills and be a little prepared LOL. Just my 2 cents worth.

That sounds like some good tape to have.

I carry a tire plug kit and set of jumper cables every day. When I run long distance I tend to carry an assortment of different tools depending on what I'm towing or hauling.
