GEAR INVENTORY: What do you carry in your truck?

From tie-downs to multi-tools to spare cash and everything in between. What do you pack on the daily? What's your truck EDC?

Tractor Supply toolbox with a tool set inside, ratchet straps, tarp, bungee cords, jumper cables, extra oil/antifreeze, jack, electric impact, snow shovel, tow straps, blanket, MRE's, and a gallon jug of water. I guess I'm a little bit of a prepper lol

A few things I always have in my truck...

First aid kit
Paracord
Tarp
Work/mechanic gloves
Box of latex gloves
Couple of mora knives (companion and eldris)
Two-way radios
Gorilla tape
Multi tool
Flashlight
Fisher space pen
Folding shovel
Dog hammock and door protectors (for when I need to drive the dog around)
Couple of microfiber towels
Small tool kit
Ratchet straps
Bungees
Jumper cables
Probably some more I'm forgetting about

The under seat storage is surprisingly big enough to fit most of it

We already have a thread on this. Search for emergency preparedness and it'll come up. I can't get Tapatalk to do the thing right now...

Ratchet straps, bungee cords, jumper cables, microfiber towels, tiny junk air compressor, code scanner, small blanket, fire starter, first aid kit, seat cover for pets, maybe couple minor things I'm forgetting. Still need a small set of hand tools to throw in but I'm completely tapped out on storage space. Wish these trucks were just a few inches wider and had closer to 1/2 ton storage on the inside....

*edit* after reading this thread I added a few more things including a fixed blade knife, multi tool, and some latex gloves. Just what I had in the house. Still need to go pick up some more things. I like these threads cause people always bring up things I may have overlooked, didn't think about, or forgotten.

I pick mine up tomorrow so I'm trying to throw together a preliminary list of things I want to have on hand. So far that list looks like this:

Leatherman
Roll of duct tape (might swap this for Gorilla Tape after seeing @DenCoColorado's list)
Zip ties
My spare set of drills (Makita)
Flashlight
Headlamp
Work gloves
Jumper cables
Boot covers
Small first aid kit
Cash
WatchDog breathalyzer

*Edit - adding stuff I see in this thread to my list below:

Lighter

...to be continued!

I need a good way to organize the bed. Right now, everything's kinda just tossed in there and it rolls around while I drive. Drives me nuts sometimes. And I don't want a standard bed toolbox. Need something to fit under the cover.

We should all start a petition for GM to implement something similar to the Ram box, lol

I think this is the thread @and_steve was talking about

Emergency Preparedness - What do you carry in your truck?

There's another one, too, because I know I've posted my list before.

I plan on getting some swing cases eventually. Will fix under the cover, easy access, easy to slide out/take off if you need the space in the bed, and can be locked. Maybe an option for you.

Two 5 gal Jerrycans of fuel in case the fuel computer doesn't compute. I read on this forum somebody ran out of gas twice. No way I want to be in that fix!
Maybe I'll get another 5 gal can to be absolutely safe.

I have a couple of big plastic bins that I keep at the end of the bed against the tailgate. They're held in place by a couple of 2x3's running across the bed. There's slots where they slip right in. It's nothing fancy, but its under the tonneau cover, so you don't even see them under normal conditions anyway.

It holds a lot of stuff and its still pretty easy to get to it by just dropping the tailgate and sliding the bins out.

As for what's in the bins, lets just say anything I might ever need. I wouldn't call myself a prepper, but I see the benefit in having some essentials all in one spot in case of an emergency. I still have 3/4 of the bed available but if I need all the space, it's as simple as pulling out the bins, and dropping them in the garage, and slipping out the boards, takes less than 2 minutes.

I don't use the bed a lot, I purchased the truck more for it's 4x4 and towing abilities. And because it's awesome.
