I have a '24 Jeep Wrangler 4xe Rubicon on order. Even though I'm not an experienced mechanic, I'm wanting to lean how to perform repairs while off-roading. Obviously, this means equipping my tool bag with a set of tools that will allow me to perform the repairs. I would appreciate hearing what others think should be included (not counting recovery gear) in a basic repairs tool bag.

I've searched for recommendations online. Here's one example I found:
The Trail Ready Jeep JL/JT Tool Kit Includes:
21mm 3/8 drive socket
15mm wrench
15mm 3/8 drive socket
19mm 3/8 drive socket
36mm 1/2 drive socket
13mm 12 point 3/8 drive socket
18mm 3/8 drive socket
24mm 1/2 drive socket
22mm 1/2 drive socket
8mm wrench
3/8 drive ratchet
3/8 drive 3" extension
3/8 drive 6" extension
10" crescent wrench
Atramentised pliers 10" Flat
Phillips screw driver #2
1/2" breaker bar

4-Piece Impact Adapter and Reducer Set
2 lb hammer
Needle nose pliers
18mm 3/8 drive deep socket
10mm 3/8 drive socket
11/12mm line wrench

I've also read that duct tape and zip ties are important to have.

I’m no mechanic, but here are some basic tools to consider. Some items may be unnecessary, or over time you may decide that this list is not complete. Some aftermarket modifications may change hardware to standard rather than metric hardware. So consider adding those specific tools to your list as you make mods.

Who makes this tool set - it looks like a good place to start. I wasn’t able to find it on Google. Thanks.

Comes with the 2023 20th anniversary edition Rubicon I believe. I am using the list to put together my own tools. It may become available separately in the future. Here’s another pic.
