    I'm headed over to the Auto Parts store later this morning. Figured I'd ask you guys which tools you like to keep handy in your truck.

    I have a small Craftsman kit with a ratchet and some shorter sockets. Also, as for sockets, what sizes do I need?

    Search "what tools to keep in truck" There are enough threads to keep you busy for the rest of the morning.

    Remember, most of this stuff we carry, recovery gear, tools, etc in our trucks is to help others less fortunate who do not drive a Toyota...:D
