    So, I'm putting together a list of all the things I should carry in my new taco and was looking for some input. I don't want to load it up too much, and preferably not have anything in any floorboard.
    What I have so far...

    :edit this is for primarily paved travel only. Any off-roading will be pack for separately from my "everyday carry"

    Jumper Cables
    Tow strap
    Screwdrivers (Philips and flat head)
    Small socket set
    Road flares (2 or 3)
    Flashlight
    Fix-a-flat can
    Window hammer/seat belt cutter
    Maps
    First Aid Kit
    Ice Scraper

    Does that have the "minimum" must haves covered without going overboard.

    I would say primarily paved road with some occasional washed out gravel/caliche roads. I definitely would consider serious off-roading as a specific event and pack items specific to that, separate from my everyday carry.
    And I am in northeast Texas
