Over the years I have seen guy's carry so many things in case there rig breaks on a trail it is unreal. Some are so well prepared in case of just about anything and when something happens it is always great to have them around. However, some are the opposite and provided you already have hand tools for a small amount of money 100 bucks or less it is actually the bare essentials that can save your butt most of the time when a rig be it yours or a fellow off roaders breaks on the trail. To start with, a good tire plug kit with lots of extra plugs one that has the screw on steel handles not the molded plastic ones. Tire valve stems,oil for the motor, trans and differentials as well as the good blue RTV silicone and a few large zip lock bags for the old oil if needed when ripping your differential apart. Extra U-joints for your drive shaft and front axles. Some wire and electrical tape, zip ties, two small ratchet straps and one large. Any auto parts store has hole putty for if you put a hole in your oil pan, automatic transmission pan, radiator or gas tank. And can't forget water and many do for some reason. I happen to carry all this and more while some guy's carry extra axles for the rear and spare complete axle assemblies for the front, have an on board welder, air and so on as well. And remember, try to work on your rig in a place so others can still drive through the trail if possible.

How about some spent bubble gum and bailing wire. Just kidding. In reality more people need to be ready for trail fixing and then some.
