Doesn't that depend on what items you want in the kit? If you are not sure then Ford Accessories has some.

Yeah I saw their off road kit is $200 lol seems kinda steep. I’m not gonna be doing anything too crazy since I am a beginner.

I keep a canvas bag that contains:

tow strap
bow shackle
soft shackle
small fire extinguisher
seatbelt cutter/window breaker
leather gloves
jumper cables
2 glow sticks
2 led flares
(I think that's all of it)

Need to add:
reflective vest
couple bottles of water
small shovel

I also keep a first aid kit, multitool, flashlight, lighter and pocketknife in my vehicle and whenever we road trip it I throw a bag of tools in as well.

All of that might be overkill but it takes almost no space and I'd rather not find myself in a situation where I need something to help someone (or myself) and I don't have it

For normal days I always have:
-tow strap
-tire pressure gauge
-slime
-fire extinguisher
-head lamp(s)
-Tie Downs
-Zip Ties
-Road Flares
-Glow Sticks
-Reflective Vest
-Mag Light
-Jumper Cables (with battery, I have been stranded too many times with jumper cables and no one to jump me)
-gloves
-First aid kit (required by my company)
-Air Down thingy (no idea what its actully called lol)

For off-roading/road tripping, all of the above plus:
-Bag full of tools (wrenches, ratches, those types of things)
-Air compressor
-Shovel
-extra set of gloves
-Bath room box (TP, toilet paper, dog poop bags, and gallon bags)
-mega phone (cuz why not)

...I think that's it but honestly its probably not lol

If you're ever going to be in snow and mud I'd suggest a set of Max Trax also.

Ditto on these. I have a jump pack that I bring when we travel that has a couple of 110V outlets and a crappy little compressor but if it gets the tire full who cares?! I also have AAA Platinum if it gets real bad.

Slime is a good idea, I'll have to pick some up.

Forgot to add:
a couple of disposable ponchos
a small tarp (in case you need to get on the ground for something)

I have been ordering stuff on Amazon. Got the recovery kit with a tow strap and hitch pull bar. Fire extinguisher, first aid kit, battery jump box, tent, and sleeping bag. Shovel next on my list. I used OffRoad club forums to see their required equipment. Not planning any overnight stuff but ready for it. In a few months (or years), the aftermarket will have bolt-on stuff like a better front bash plate, rock rails, and more options for lift kits.
