Must have's on your truck/trailer

What are some must have's on your rig? I'm starting my business this year and some of the things I always carry are

Gas jugs
Hand tools (rakes, shovels, ect)
Grease gun
Couple quarts of oil and hydraulic fluid
Tire plugs
Air Tank
Misc Tools

Just out of curiosity, which may help others in case of a problem that needs to be addressed while your out mowing, what are some of the must have accessories you keep on your rig?

Always have a hammer. Hammers and wd40. With these simple tools you can do wonders.
