A lot of discussion on that site about the need for including an assault rifle.
My truck (like yours) lacks a lot of room. Maybe a gun rack!
It could attach to a wind blocker! :-)

Not to knock the list...

I can't believe they left off a tow strap.

I do not claim to be a GM representative, all of my postings are my own interpretation and personal opinions.

Few more to add: light glow sticks, cheap quick easy to use. bungee cords or straps. bright colored rain gear, jacket, hat, poncho think night time here. extra oil/ps/brake/rad fluid. extra fan belt maybe? gloves! you never know, think hot exhaust! hand/body warmer packs. water/food if this keeps up I'm gonna have to get a bigger car or in our case a bigger trunk. your lawyers cell phone number nuff said. Ah the list is endless, add in the OEM approved gun rack, the adult beverages dispenser, those two strippers from the place down the road, and your gonna run out of room soon. I could lose those other items, but the adult beverage dispenser, and the two strippers are last ones to leave my list! Sorry not automotive roadside asst. program thinking on my part, but if I am going to be stranded somewhere, I'm not going to be bored with my location or entertainment factor while I wait for the flat bed.

You can be prepared for everything for road trip or your daily commute, some of this is just common sense. Adjust yours accordingly.

That's Funny!
I do my car cleaning while the car sits in the garage, no micro-towel or cleaning stuff sits in cars...
In fact the only thing I keep in the car from the AutoGuide.com list is a roll of quarters, here in Florida you get surprised once in a while with a 25 cent toll booths...

Yea, we have no toll booths like that here. Our toll lanes you can use and then pay for the trip later on the intranet. LOL Now if I worked in a downtown location where parking meters are prevalent, then yea.

The reason I have micro fibers is I drive with the top down a lot and dust or fingerprints on our piano black console makes me mental. LOL I have an interior car duster plus the micro fibers in my glove box to address this unique OCD issue I have. LOL
