Roadside Car Repair

What would everyone consider as the bare essentials for a roadside car repair kit.To start I would include an extra headlight and a serpentine belt.I would also want tools available to change both of these in addition to tools needed to jump a car and change a dead battery.A basic socket kit and some screwdrivers should handle this.I'm assuming here that they factory tools to change a tire are already included with the car.Any other thoughts or suggestions?See More
