    As the title says, and where do you keep it?

    I've got the extended cab. I've always kept small jugs of window washer fluid and oil in the trunk of my car. With the taco I put those two items in the bed in those two small compartments near the end.

    I've also got an emergency kit (gloves, jumper cables, bandages, etc) that I keep on the floor behind my driver seat. I might invest in a kit that has different dimensions so I can put it under the jump seats in the back. It's just rolling around right now. I like keeping it in the cab.

    I've got an extending brush / scraper in the door compartment for the driver side suicide door, and a hand held scraper with metal scraper blade in the glove compartment.

    I've got a road atlas, but there isn't seatback storage so I'm not sure where to toss it yet. Might try the glove compartment but it'll be tight.

    Center console armrest has got your basic pharmacy of advil, tums, sanitizer, etc. Haven't found anything to put in the rear console between the two jumper seats yet.

    So, no reason behind the thread other than curiosity :). What do you keep around?
