I keep whatever I think I'll need since we have farm land away from home and I stop for people stuck in the ditch ect. I Have a headache rack with lights and plan on heavy duty bumpers front and back and a front receiver hitch. Most importantly though I keep band-aids and Advil in the truck at ALL times.
I've been meaning to throw a first aid kit in my truck too. I think I'll add a couple rolls of gauze and some medical tape as well. The medical tape can also be used as a tourniquet in an emergency.
In my old truck I found that a milk crate makes a really nice (free/cheap) container to carry extra fluids in. Oils, power steering fluid, antifreeze, etc.. You can run a bungee cord through the side of it and secure it to the inside of the bed at your tie-down point.
