Default What kinds of tools do you have with you in your truck most of the time?

Just put together two separate 24" Craftsman under seat tool boxes.

First, My work tools(V.P. & State certified fire sprinkler systems inspector for my company)

18" aluminum Rigid pipe wrench
Channel locks
Creasant Wrench
Screwdrivers(one each)
TamperProof screwdriver combo
Fire Sprinkler head wrenches
Tape measure
Teflon tape
Screwed plugs(various sizes)
Tie wraps

Truck box, gets thrown in when I'm out and about and wrenching
1/2" & 3/8" std & metric socket set w ratchets, extensions and breaker bars
1/4" sockets and ratchet
Channel locks
Cresant wrench
Multi tip screwdriver
Wire strippers
Utility blade
Tape measure
Vise grip pliers
Super glue
Blue lock tight

First aid kit and fire extinguisher

Oh yeah, and a leatherman multi tool aswell as a surefire G2 flashlight in the center console.

And most importantly....... A roll of t.p. and wet wipes in the glove compartment!

I bought a tool set from Lowes similar to this one. Close out price was $9.95

Then I have assorted PVC and copper pipe with fittings, MAPP gas, solder and flux. I also have a hammer, wood chisels and a box of odds and ends like door hardware, insulation strips, duck tape and filters. I own rentals and find it easier to keep the basics on hand.

On my normal commute I only have a pair of gloves, tire pump, gauge, tow rope, regular rope to tie stuff down with, acouple ratchet straps, some bungee cords, jumper cables, electrical tape, misc fuses, two flash lights, and a knife or two.

Now if I'm towing the Mustang to an event, I bring everything short of the engine crane and stand. Multiple socket / wrench sets, misc hand tools, jack, jack stands, impact gun, spare tires (car & trailer), etc.
