What's in your bed tool box?

Hey everyone! I recently put a chest tool box in my bed and have been slowly putting items I believe may come in handy. I'm looking for suggestions. My goal is to be helpful in as many different situations as possible. I really want a replacement to the OEM behind seat jack. I like the hi-lift jacks but are they actually useful for our trucks? And I'm not into zombie preparedness. Lol.

I've got a tool chest with 1/4" 3/8" and 1/2" ratchets and sockets, wrenches both metric and standard, jumper cables, tow/pull strap, chain, clevises, battery powered impact wrench (makes changing tires a breeze), bottle jack, pliers/wire cutters/needle nose/etc, screw drivers, electrical tape, zip ties, and that's where i keep my diesel clean fuel additive.

Everything mentioned above plus I carry my trailer ratchet straps, tarp, and of course a spare CPS (I'm a 7.3 owner...)

I have oil, fuel additive, power steering fluid, a box of nitrile gloves, a roll of shop towels, 2 socket sets and other tools, ratchet straps, tow straps, jumper cables, a moving blanket, 6 drawbars for towing various trailers, shackles, hitch pins, and a folding wheel step for getting into the engine compartment. I have a pretty big toolbox, obviously.

I should probably add a jack and a tarp to the list. And maybe a gallon of mixed coolant.

for your jack, get a decent bottle jack. Much stronger and more reliable than the stocker and usually fits in the stock jack location
