Truck Kit Coming Together


Recommended Posts

With my newly acquisitioned tools and storage, I decided to start putting together a kit to keep in the truck.  So far, I have the Makita 3/8" SAE and metric socket sets along with a 1/2" adapter, Klein 11-in-1 screwdriver, M12 3/8" ratchet, impact wrench and drill, and M18 Fuel mid-torque impact wrench.  I think that a single 5.0Ah M18 battery and my three M12 batteries (two are charging at the moment) will be sufficient, and I have yet to see if the Rapid Charger will fit in this T-Stak.  I have a set of 1/2" DeWalt metric impact sockets in my truck along with Stanley SAE sockets (might have that backwards), and will see if my Snap-On and Sunex sockets will actually fit in the case (once I rescue them from storage next week).


I think the entire T-Stak combo will probably stay in the truck, with the bottom box full of hand tools for projects away from home and the top full of various hardware.  One thing I'd like to get is a compact M12 light, though I have various other lights in the truck already.


Any input or suggestions?  With over 250k miles on the truck and a body that's tired of wrenching and ratcheting, I want to ensure my bases are covered to maximize efficiency.  The truck box has all the basic mechanic's tools, prybars, big hammers, jack and stands, and some specialty tools such as axle nut and O2 sensor sockets.
