Best things to have in your toolbox for under $25?

Hey everyone, I'm curious what tools and accessories everyone has that they have found to be worth having handy. What things under $25 do you own or use that you're glad to have?

-Tire Gauge
-Tire Deflators
-Mini Flashlight


I am now a dealer for Iron Rock Off Road
I offer the same great products you already know about,
the same low prices you have been seeing, and with
the same experienced customer support, but I can offer it nearly 24/7

"Project Dirty Princess"
5.9 ZJ 7" IRO, 35s, 8.8, hp30, locked, blah blah

"Project Grow A Set"

Valve stem tool. Can be used to deflate as well as fix a loose stem on buddies rig. A friend saved my hide one day by lending me his.

Anyone ever use that putty stuff for patching leaks and whatnot?

I am embarrassed to admitting to owning a $14 right angle die grinder (Harbor Freight), but I carry this with metal cut off wheels and power it by on board CO2 tank with 150psi regulator. You can cut a crushed tailpipe off that's for sure.
