Right now, I keep jumper cables, a chain, a propane torch, a big flashlight and a couple cans of de-icer spray as well as my fire extinguisher and triangles.....thinking I might start tossing some tools, a couple quarts of plow fluid, and a set of extra hoses for each type of plow in there too, that way when I get a call about a blown hose instead of saying "try to chain it up and get it back to the shop" I can say "I'll be there in 10 minutes and change it for you"

The bucket is for ice melt, salt, sand and to stand on if I need to work under the hood of my truck !! NOT for dropping a deuce in :nono:
 
IN CAB - street maps, iPhone, USB cable into stereo, mints, gum, water, gatorade, decaf coffee, Pepsi, tissues, roll of shop towels, coveralls, spare jacket, flashlight, jumper box, head lamp light thing, two hats, dielectric grease, pens, clipboard, banana, peanut butter crackers, granola bars… lots of Atlas thermal gloves, Bright Yellow DOT jacket, lip balm, IBUPROFEN!! DOT kit

TRUCK BOXES - chains, full tool box, spare V-Box belt, Diesel Power additive, shovels, jumper cables, straps, cans of fluid film/WD40/starter fluid/electrical connection cleaner/Blaster, GAS cans for spreader, plow fluid, washer fluid jug

I'm sure there's more. I am obsessive about packing the truck before a night out.
