    Ill throw a 3rd in for the chew, skoal straight here

    Socket set, tow strap, chains, fooooooooood, couple drinks, I literally have 8 or 9 pairs of gloves in my truck, just from people leaving them in there, I dont think any of them were originally mine. Ive also got a couple coats and sweatshirts for the same reason haha

    I also threw my set of winter boots in there, even tho I wear my chippewas all the time, just in case I get em wet or something I have an extra set. Also I carry a few quarts of oil, cause the 8.1 uses oil, and so I just always have that with me

    Ipod, cell, caffine pills. Ipod come in real handy about 5 am when the morning shows start coming on- i hate talk shows. I listen to the radio for music, not to hear a bunch of people talk.

    Copenhagn, extra cope just incase you run out at 4 am, Red Bull no need for ice just throw the extras in the back of the truck to keep it cold, unless it's like -10 than just keep it in the cab and throw a can in the back about 10 minutes before you want to drink it, extra hoses, oil for the plow, tie down straps (you can actually strap the frame bar to the tow hooks when the plow mount breaks, trust me lol) channel locks, cresent wrench, windshield washer fluid, ice scraper, mp3 player, cell phone, deer jerky

    This past storm as i was leaving my garage I grabbed my tools just because they were right there. I actually needed to use them within 5 minutes of plowing. The pusher I was running lost the bolts that hold one of the skid shoes on. So I was able to borrow 2 bolts from the other side and bolt the skid shoe back on.
