I know a guy who carries a very small microwave oven. Great for heating up his lunch and coffee. A nice inverter set up or generator would be good also.

Toasted sandwich makers and panini presses are good too.

I've never rolled any of my trucks over.....:(

But there are blue boxes, ever since Carlon bought out T+B's production line.

Tweezers to kill for...

Clip on your keychain, available at Lee Valley...

Other than that, on my truck,
- small carpet to set my ladder on in folks homes.
- bag of chips
- smokes
I have a 3x4 piece of plywood for setting ladder on lots of times in renos they'll pull up a bathroom floor and leave nothing around to put under the ladder, its saved me a few times. Also some old towels if ladders are getting leaned against something etc
