Get a good set of torx socket adapters for all of the messed up screws on jeeps. A good run of metric wrenches and sockets are also necessary. A torque wrench is mandatory. I re-torque before hitting the road. My best tool is an 8lb sledge with the handle cut off at 20". It has gotten me out of many jambs. A good tire repair kit. Okay. I bring the kitchen sink, especially on big trips (Dusy Ershim, Rubicon, Fordyce). I'd even consider some welding capabilities. Three car batteries and a couple sets of jumper cables make a great welder.

I guess it depends on what you can do/are likely to need to do.

If it's really a bad problem and it's going to take a few days to fix on the trail then you may need some of this from Snoop Dog. Just saying.

If you can get a ground and rod holder, put some battery terminals on them. Use the jumper cables to connect positive to negative and create a 36 volt battery. Put the ground on the positive terminal and the use the rod on the negative terminal (DC negative). Get at least 1/8" 6013 or 7018. It is really hard to strike. Once you get it going it isn't bad.
