Default tool Kit

I was thinking about getting a tool kit to keep in my vehicle if something happens to me or to someone else. I was thinking a 260 or 309 would be best. You know proper tool for the proper job but I was just curious what everyone else carries in their vehicle?

I have something similar to this 86 PIECE GENERAL TOOL KIT : Target

Mine has a boat load more sockets for 1/4 and 3/8 ratchets though. It's more of a mechanic's tool kit than a "general service" kit. Typically though, if I have a bad enough problem encountered on the road that I need LOTS of tools to fix, I'll either tow it, or have to go get parts anyways. Plus I really don't want to feel obligated to help fix other people's cars lol

Good idea for a thread. I have one of those diamond plate tool boxes in the back of my truck. All it has in it is my 12vdc compressor for possible flat tires and my train horns. It also stores my tow rope.
I should have an all purpass tool kit in there.
I'll be following this thread

Well I have a 120 Piece I keep at work and it works but the quailty of the tools is poor so I wanna up grade have good tools to keep in my vehicle. I keep a 2 1/4 ton floor jack I got off a guy up at work for $25.

I saw this and if I had the make and model of this guy it work but maybe it will give you guys some ideas

what site are you talking about. I have a tool box with tools but I don't want to just shove it in my ride and take it a long. That would be a lot of money in the back of my truck. I am just wanting a last ditch, I break down on the side of the road, fix till I can get home tool kit.
