Do you keep a tool set on board?

I always like to keep a fairly complete tool set on board, but over the years the number of pieces in my old harbor freight kit have dwindled with use and its time to replace it.

So this should be an interesting discussion...what do you carry with you, or do you have a favorite tool kit or tool set that you bring with or leave with your rig?

I carry a complete set of 1/4", 3/8", &1/2" sockets and matching extensions and ratchets. A set of pliers, screwdrivers, Allen wrenches, and a test meter, along with an assortment of wire connectors, fuses, and electrical tape. Next to the tools is a bucket with wd40, contact cleaner, and hand soap. I also carry a small assortment of screws and bolts. Oh yeah, an air compressor, air hose and fittings to air a tire or blow up a beach ball. Once, I estimated I was carrying an extra 35 lbs worth of tools and supplies. For me it's worth it.

Of course
80# toolbox plus bottle jack, tow strap, cordless drill, cordless grease gun, collapsible ladder ...
Mainly not for emergencies, but you never know when I get bored.
Edit: and dicor, duct tape, electrical tape, air compressor, slide seal lubricant - you get the idea.
