Nice box, I like the white. Very special edition, never seen white. I like the wrench and socket organizers. Harbor freight, right? I saw a video review of those. How do you like em? Any complaints about them? Do they seem complete? Does it have 6 point and 12 point socket covered?

Thanks. Yeah they are from harbor freight and for the price I don't think you can beat them. They seem pretty complete to me each tray has space for regular and deep sockets. When I took these pictures I didn't have many deep sockets so I had some 12 point in the deep socket side and that worked fine. I picked up some deep 1/2 drive impact sockets and they fit in there nicely also. Only complaint on them I would say is that the labeling might be hard for some to read on the 1/4 inch drive standard tray. Also these tray aren't really good if you plan on taking them in and out on a careful basis. A full 1/2 drive tray would be pretty heavy and awkward. But as long as you keep them in the drawer they are nice. Some reviews said the some sockets would not fit on some of the posts. I did not find this to be an issue with my Craftsman sockets.

Home box with decent tools. Dont have a big box at work as im 50/50 shop fab/onsite mechanical.

Wrench drawer blew me away at how many racks i could fit (depth of drawer), as did pliers drawer. almost could fit a second organizer. krl1056, would definitely recommend.




heres work cart day i got it. very loaded up. disappointed it doesnt fit more/longer tools. plus 36" breaker and 42" pry bar cant go in internal organizer without hitting side.

you thought truck mods were an addiction? filling up that box, finding deals, reading reviews, thats the addiction. however theres nothing nicer then to have the right tools for the job.

adjust front 5100's ride height (compress coils), and swap rear leafs took about 2 hours from start to finish.

I won this in a raffle. Only cost me $20. I have it filled with tools, but I need to organize them and label the drawers sometime.

Just swapped out an 11 drawer kobalt "stainless" box for this. Better suits what I do for traveling and on site installation of our equipment.

Still working out the organizational kinks. Using a combination of the husky brand tool bags.

I know, except my mod money doesn't go to my truck, it goes to my Mustang. And yes, I've been addicted to tools way before I had a garage to put them. Hell, 65% of my time in the office is spent looking through Sears, eBay, Garagejournal Hot Deals section, and anywhere else looking for tool deals.

Anyway, I'm SOOO jacked to be able to finally contribute to this thread. Here is my current setup:











The chest is a discontinued TASKFORCE model that used to sell at Lowe's for $200. Its actually pretty sturdy compared to the other tin pot piece of crap at the price range. I improvised with a heavy duty Craftsman middle box that I ended up getting for free, because Sears completely dicked up an online order and didn't charge me for it (I tried to get them to correct it but they assured me the charge would show up on my credit card eventually, but it never did).

The cart is the HF 350lb cart which is actually pretty nifty for the $55-60 it costs with the coupon.

I ran out of hooks for the peg board, so my Gearwrench ratcheting S-wrenches are still waiting to go up. And for Christmas, Im going to get a set of the EZ-Red extra extra long ratcheting flexhead wrenches which should look good on the peg board.

Sockets are almost exclusively Gearwrench, with some Stanley and Duralast in there. Ratchets are Gearwrench, Snap-On, Matco, Craftsman, and a couple of assorted other makes. Main go to ratchets are GW, SO, and Matco.

I was too lazy to break out Milwaukee cordless tools and my pliers and hammers, but there's some good quality stuff in the box, not pictured.

Anyway, I love my set-up now but will eventually get the HF 44in box.

One toolbox to rule them all!



Kenworth T370 service truck with enclosed heated work body, LED floodlights, remote-control spotlights, air suspension and seats, power heated mirrors, power windows and locks, iPod stereo and wi-fi hub with long range booster. Got it brand-new in early 2012 when current employer hired me, and it also came with a new Toughbook laptop for a super-cute accessory! I am spoiled rotten.

Well, get a high GPA in diesel mechanic school, have a perfect driving record and no criminal record, be willing to work any day of the week any hour of the day in any weather from 115 to -20 degrees F, and it could happen for you too. No welder on board but it does have a dedicated compressor for air tools. My only complaint is the air isn't strong enough to run a 3/4" impact. I will take some pics of the inside next week when I get back from holiday.

Perfect driving record is the real problem for me, granted I only have one moving violation on there at the moment but owning a 400 hp car and a bike that cant seem to keep the front wheel down has done an all out assault on my driver license.. If it wasnt for taking out the prepaid legal plan at work I would have lost them to a 12 point suspension long ago.
As far as willing to work in adverse conditions any day of the week, ive been doing that for 16 years at my current job..
