    well, I got a new truck! a 2011 ford f-150 to be exact. So with a new truck I figured it would be smart to put together a small truck kit that just has a few basic things that could help me get out of most small situations. Keep in mind that I have a small tool box full of tools in my truck to.

    Heres the whole package together. Im keeping it in an old mini camera case. So all together I have the case, my surefire 6px pro and an old rag (never been a huge fan of bandanas)

    Here's everything layed out.

    victorinox compact
    band-aids, medical tape, gauze pads and a few tylenol pills
    surefire 6px pro
    old hand rag
    50ft of paracord
    small bic lighter

    It's really all I think I need, the SAK is more of a back up to my pocket knife then anything.

    tell me what yall think!

    It looks good to me, always good to have some extras! I have my truck stocked with flashlight knife and basic tools but with the winter months I added a couple extra lights and spare work gloves. I should change out the nylon rope for paracord though.

    Looks good to me! I'd probably through a pencil and notepad in there too along with some extra lithium batteries.

    Depending on the weather, add a space saver emergency blanket and several large trash bags. Work gloves is a good idea. In thirty odd years, I had to clean up broken glass twice.

    Duct tape is always a good idea. Plastic sheeting came in handy after the last glass clean up. It was raining, so I put that to help keep the interior drier.

    Space blankets for me are in the firstaid kit. One came with the kit and I added a second one. Also some disposable hand warmers for the winter months.

    What about adding a first aid kit and an extraction tool (seatbelt cutter and window punch)? I consider them must haves in a vehicle.
