Extra fuses, pieces of wire, fire extinguisher, jumper cables, bottles of water, and a few blocks of wood for jacking the truck up on the side of the road. I agree with the comment above about rotating your tires in the driveway, just good practice if you get caught with a flat. Also gives me a chance to wash the inside of my wheels and check everything out.

Jesus, how is your mileage?

I have an ammo can that has a couple ratchet tie downs, gloves, clevises, recovery strap. Older first aid kit under the seat, disposable rain poncho in the glove box. Factory widow maker and tie iron, roll of TP and my hitch in a plastic case.

No dead babies though.

Eating. 4 day old dead baby isn't very tasty i'd assume. Unless your a bear, in which case you probably don't care.

I keep a crap load of stuff and it changes a lot but i at least try to keep some of the same things in there everyweek.
since its summer: 1 quart 30w Hydro oil
1 quart motor oil
1 jug dex cool
2 scalp wheels
seat belt assembly for Exmark Laser. (you'd be surprised how often i change it)
i have a tiny toolbox in there that hasn't been gone thru in years, but i'm pretty sure it has a stranded and metric deep well socket set, half inch drive
set of pliers and screwdrivers.
box of ammo for the Walther if things get sticky, or we go shooting after work.
a few band aids for the hell of it.
roll of paper towels just cause.
a case of water casue i'm thirsty a lot.

in the winter i usually carry around a tow strap and old military folding shovel instead of lawnmower parts.
