    Snatch strap, viair pump, dring hitch reciever, couple d rings, blanket, couple ratchet straps, couple bungee straps, box of vinyl gloves, collapsible shovel, electrical stuff (wire, disconnects/terminals, pliers, heatshink)

    my tool set sits in the back of my cab..mainly cause it doesnt fit in my ammocans. think i might try to consolidate it (read: put all the metrics in the cans, and leave the standard sockets in my apt.)
