TORX BITS !!!!! If jeep cursed the JK with them too.

BFH (big f(&%$# hammer)

Extra fluids
wrenches
sockets/ratchet
gloves
a small folding shovel is nice for lots of things
rags/kitty litter.....for fluid spills......CLEAN THEM UP!


The list is endless. I cant fit it all in a tool bag. Axle shafts/spider gears/ u=joints...extra parts.

Its almost too big of a list... lol
I normally carry a larger toolbag with pretty much everything to get me back running if I break.

BFH
Socket Set
Box Wrnech Set
Screw Drivers
Pliers
Vice Grips
Channel Locks
Large Adj. Wrech for control arm nuts
Torx Bits (a couple of the main sizes, since they like to strip the torx ends)
Duct Tape
Small Spool of Wire
Pry Bars

Also carry Hi-lIft jack
spare fluids
extra U-joints
Ball Joint Press

Dam I'm surprised I fit most of that in my Jeep, I cant wait until I get my tow rig in a couple weeks... LOL

get both metric & inch, but when getting metric, try getting the ones that have the standard hex pattern vs. the star pattern... cant count how many times over the years I've seen some bolts get rounded off

i would always bring a shit load of stuff. But it can get out of control and very heavy.

I'm just going to bring the basics... recovery gear (20' strap - tree saver - snatch block - heavy gloves), wrenches, set of pliers, metric and sae sockets, 3/8" and 1/2" ratchets, 1/2" breaker bar, extensions, spare parts (unit bearing, ball joints, axle shafts, ujoint, pitman arm), first aid kit, tire plug kit, duct tape

oh and WATER and my lunch snacks.

just that stuff alone is HEAVY

*I've got that large olive drab army tool bag too. Works great! Also just got a bunch of mastercraft bags for organizing my tools better.
