Looking to put together a tool bag for the off road adventures. What tools are an absolute necessity for trail repairs. Want to keep it fairly light but want to be able to fix what I can if need be.

I always have a breaker bar and the socket sizes for most of the main things as well as my skids and sliders. Also 13-17 wrenches. Two sizes of crescents channel locks. A dead blow both types of screw drivers and a 3-8drive ratchet with a 1/2 adapter
Also a tire patch kit. If you don’t have a full size
And I have a hilift because your stock jack off road ain’t gonna do crap

10mm, 12mm deep sockets as well as box end wrenches. 14, 17mm shallow and box ends.
Channel lock, Multitool, needlenose, Flathead, Phillips, quality flash light, ratchet straps, tire iron, patch kit, pocket knife, long knife, jumper cables, bottle jack, headlamp, maps/gps, shovel, duct tape, boots, toilet paper, baby wipes, tire gauge, Tow strap, d rings, qt of oil, jug of Dih2o, case of drinking water, space blanket, fire starter, trail mix, gloves, first aid kit, 2 way radio, 550 cord
That's pretty much in my truck always.
Probably forgetting some.
I have my winch bag, my CamelBak, roadside kit bag, and first aid bag.
My CamelBak is the biggest out of all the bags and even that's smaller than a regular backpack

An SBR for when you need to change that tire in the middle of a f'cking drug trafficker's highway in the middle of f'cking nowhere in the middle of the f'cking night.

All of the flashlights. Magnetic ones, hangy ones, standy ones, foldy ones, bendy ones, pink ones, lantern ones, etc.

Good, stable jack usable on a variety of terrain. Extensions & lifting pads if applicable.

Breaker bar.

Cordless impact, 8mm-21mm deep well sockets. Extra keys for locking lugnuts.

8mm-19mm ratcheting wrenches.

Ratchet, extension, 4mm-19mm sockets.

Snatch strap. Something to hook said snatch strap to... D-rings, soft shackles, tow hook, etc.

Jumper cables.

Pliers.

Bit driver with bit set.

Hammer.

Channel Locks.

Tarp.

Gorilla Tape.

Zip ties. All of the zip ties.

Lighter and lighter fluid to re-seat a tire or burn that motherfucker to the ground if all of the other shit you brought with you didn't solve the problem.

And of course this should all be in addition to your expedition gear like shovels, portable compressor or OBA, fuel, etc.
And that is in addition to your onboard medical kit and 10 C's of survival.
And that should be on top of your EDC such as a flashlight, multiple knives, concealed handgun, tic tacs, condoms, phone, rainbow unicorn keychain, etc. which everyone should have on them at all times.

Only other thing I carry that isn't on the list so far is JB weld/Liquid Metal, and lesson learned from yesterday is to bring extra fuses for your coms gear.
