Been meaning to get a few more simple tools, but have not gotten around to it. 99.9% of the time I'm on pavement in the burbs or the expressway, and in cell phone range.

In my garage....meh.....a lot of standard stuff for anyone that would work on motorcycles, including a 10 gallon air-compressor.

Most important tool in my garage? The kegerator....

^^^ You had me at "kegerator"

Why can things ever be the easy way?

Here is what I carry harbor freight about $30 including the roll case.
Hopefully it would be enough to get me or someone else out of trouble.

insylem So far I have a small 3/8" drive ratchet, a T40 and T50 Torx bits. I have some Jumper cables that I swap from my car to the Jeep depending on what I'm driving that day.

WatchThis! I actually tote all the tools and fluids I need to do anything to my jeep on the trail. Anything from changing a light bulb to changing an axle shaft. And yes I do tote spare axle shafts in the jeep if I am going some where that I or someone else might break one. Of course this is not practical for most people.

As far as what to carry in the jeep goes. A socket and wrench set along as a few screwdrivers and pliers are a good start. These can be carried in a small bag that does not take up a lot of space.

Rack Ops
Tools: In the Jeep and in the garage

The other day I was reading a post on here that mentioned keeping a Gorilla telescoping wrench in his Jeep. I had never heard of that particular product, so I checked it out on Amazon...it has great reviews, and it made me wonder what other tools are a good thing for Jeep to have onboard, and what tools are must haves for a JK owner's garage?
