I'm not taking too much. Most likely all of the tools you listed, but not many supplies since all of those are easily obtainable at a Walmart car section or any car parts store. I'm going with my Dad, and between the two of us, our changes of clothes, and miscelaneous items, there really isn't a whole lot of room for anything else.

the tools fit in a small bag mostly. the supplies don;t take up much space, and the other stuff is optional. i prefer to have extra incase, or incase somebody else has trouble also
