I consider myself the "prepared" type, and generally keep a decent bit of stuff in the truck in order to be prepared for whatever situation I may come across. That being said, I am always looking to update my setup in order to be prepared for a situation I may not have foreseen (and because I like cool stuff), so I would love to hear what y'all keep handy. Obviously what you carry is based on where you spend your time and what your capabilities are.

I just graduated from college and am now headed off to medical school, so I don't spend all that much time out in the sticks, however I do a good bit of back roads and empty highway driving. Here is what I keep on hand:

Shakespeare open faced rod w/ 4lb test line in the bed tucked under the tool box
General truck toolbox stuff: tools, tie downs, jumper cables, road flares, etc
Machete in the toolbox
Hiking boots in the toolbox
Tackle box
Hatchet
Well-stocked medical aid bag (full contents in a first aid thread from a while back)
Grab 'n' go bag with gear I would want if I needed to leave my vehicle for some reason:
extra clothes, belt, spare jacket
Gerber LMF II knife
Binoculars
Baofeng UV5R radio
About 50 extra rounds of 9mm; I carry a Glock 26 and 45 rounds on me
Fire starting gear: vaseline soaked cotton balls, magnesium, lighters, matches
Streamlight Protac

I'm sure I have left stuff out, and I am sure y'all will have great setups that I will learn a lot from.

Toilet paper. And now, at my age, Preperation H "totables" wipes. Lots of other stuff, but those are the top two.

Congratulations on graduating from a great school. One of my daughters graduated from there. Another one is now a physician. Congratulations too on being accepted to med school.

Thanks Creekrunner! I really enjoyed Baylor, and I am very thankful to be on my way to a career in medicine.

Rope, tow strap, trenching tool.
I would forget the magnesium and Vaseline, you have road flares!
Gloves and water. Other than that, looks good.

Gloves for hot jobs, I use the take off belts and radiator hoses as spares, and tie wire them in the grill bumper area. Can of Coleman fuel for emergency gas to share. Cell phone and CB radio for OTR travels.

Two tow straps, full first aid kit, some water, some tools, some rope, jumper cables, slime tire repair, extra ammo, knives, work and latex gloves, and safety glasses, paper towels, rags, acetaminophen, flash lights, a 12 volt compressor, jumper cables, a blanket, bug repellant, rain gear, spare reading glasses and some trash bags. And although I don't keep any guns in the truck when I'm not in it, when I am I'm prepared.

Same here mostly. Hope I don't need to use any of the items, except for the last one!
