I like to have a 1/4" ratchet with 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, and 14mm deepwell sockets and a 3" extension. Screwdriver set with changeable tips. Also any allen type wrenches needed for caliper removal etc. I carry a cheap Wally World air pump that works excellent. I stripped the big plastic cover off of the air pump and wired on an SAE two prong plug that works with my trickle charger connection on my battery. I will be adding an RV roof type SAE 2 prong plug to the side panel for easier electrical power access. Small can of chain wax. Tire plugs, "stroms don't have tubes", and the factory tool kit. We have been able to fix most every type of mechanical issue we have come across with this set up. I bought a cheap tank mechanics tool carrier at a military surplus store to store my tools in. A small fishing lure plastic container holds my ratchet and sockets perfectly. For much longer trips away from the house I will include a few more tools for those 'what if ' situations.

Sorry for not thanking you sooner! Sounds like a complete set up.

I do have a Question about your "stroms don't have tubes". can you explain to a n00b please?

+1 on the portable compressor with a hardwired set of dedicated SAE plugs.

These are super convenient not only for the emergency need, but also for "airing up" for the slab ride home. You can save tread wear by having the tires aired to max. recommended pressure for concrete, and have much better traction on the dirt by dropping the pressure down. I'm a huge fan of my compressor for this purpose.
