    What are some must have items for your truck?

    Whether you are off-roading or just driving daily, what are some things that you must have in your truck? Whether it be for comfort or necessity. Two straps, receiver shackles, high lift jack, water, survival kit, etc.

    I will start

    Emergency kit(tire plug, jumper cables, flashlight)
    Pancho(will come in handy if I had to change tires in rain)
    Tie down straps

    Pictures are welcome!

    I have an air compressor! Extremely useful. Especially if you bike and need to put air in a tire!

    Differential Breather Mod Light Bar: 2 Hella 4000 HID, 1 Cibie Halogen. Bilstein 5100s Ride Rite Air Bags
    In the bed compartments:
    Tow Strap (for those with Fords, Chevy's or Nissans who try and go where I go!)
    Channel locks, bungee cords.

    Under the back seat:
    Tool set, bailing wire, inverter, tire plug kit, batteries...

    Behind the back seat:
    Wind breaker, down vest, window cleaner, paper towels, etc.

    When camping: A quick air compressor that clips onto the battery. I had a smaller cig. lighter one that was always in my truck. It fit behind the rear seat in my '05, but the new mid range speaker now takes up that space in my '10, and the little compressor died.
