    New additions to my kit from what I listed earlier.
    I have recently added
    a 20 foot tow strap
    6 ratchet tie towns
    Cargo containment net
    Cargo containment bar
    Jumpstart box w/built-in compressor AND DC-->AC inverter

    And I didn't list it earlier, but I too have a OBD II scanner. I didn't list it because I thought you guys thought I was insane. I got to use it the other day to clear a check engine light, because the gas station guy didn't tighten the gas cap. (GOD I wish I lived in a state where I could pump my own gas!)

    I would hit up the local hardware store and buy a 3/8" driver handle and a kit of assorted screwdriver bits, torx sizes (they go to size 50 in some places on my truck), and nut drivers as well...this would have you set for all screws.....hmmm? Eh I'll just let that one go!!!

    I bought a set of "mini jumper cables" years ago and they fit in the glove box. They work great. I also keep a Leatherman in all my rides.

    In my big box I have 5 separate boxes for tools.

    Box #1 is all my stuff with ratchets. I have a 1/4" set, a 3/8" set, and a 1/2" set. I keep multiple ratchets, extensions, universals, and breakers in there. I also keep a set of Allen sockets and Torx sockets too. I have a few back outs in that box.

    Box #2 is my miscellaneous tools box. Things like picks, grabbers, bits, Allen wrenches, wire brushes, tape messure, WD-40, etc. etc.

    Box #3 is my A-frame tool bag. It holds my 50 something piece screw driver set that my gf bought me for Valentine's Day on one side. The other side holds my small hammers, pliars, and a few other miscellaneous tools.

    Box #4 is my Gear Wrench specialty ratchet set. This is one of those sets that have the pass-through stye ratchets and sockets. They are for extra long bolts or pieces of all-thread.

    Box #5 is my last ditch effort box. It houses my 1" drive socket and rachet set. I've only used it twice. Once, when replacing the clutch on my John Deere, and then to break the lug nuts on my brother's truck.

    Then I have a couple of tools that couldn't fit into boxes, such as:
    Pry Bars
    24" aluminum pipe wrench
    some other pipe wrenches
    Shop maul
    etc. etc.

    In my trays I carry electrical tape, electrical fittings, electrical pliers, safety glasses, led flash light, and a pair of work shoes.

    I also carry a jug of water, brake fluid, antifreeze, a bottle of purple power, electrical cleaner, and rags.


    But here's the best part. I bought my big box, a Husky black over the rail box, for $125 from the flea market. I change the lock, lift shock, and added new weather stripping. My 1" drive set I bought for $50 bucks from the same market. It doesn't have name, just China chiseled on the side. I bought it b/c one of those sockets are $30 from Sears, and they are drop forged, and if the ratchet ever goes out, I'll just swallow and buy a new one, they are only about #80.
