Essentials in Your Truck

I was wondering what everyone kept in their truck at all times.
I'll start by saying I don't keep everything I'd like because I don't Have a Toolbox yet.

Here's my list.

Leatherman( These make god's of us all)
Tow Strap
Small Cheap Tool Kit
Tire Gauge
Duck Tape
Jumper Cables
Oil
Chapstick( Burts Bees Bee's Wax to be exact, Trip B L B)

Well that is my short list ,and I know I'm forgetting a few things. That will kick off this thread I hope.
