    I added two more entries to the OP based on my own experiences.

    • Toyota uses 7/16-20 SAE fine thread for seat belt bolt hardware if your shopping for replacement bolts.

    • 7/32 SAE socket for Blower Motor Resistor screws
    Thanks for the sticky @tcBob :)

    Also, you need and 8mm for the bolts that hold the tail lights in, not just the running boards

    Nice idea Crom.
    My 2 cents.
    A small roll of electrical wire. To make electrical connections. Maybe electrical pliers.
    A small roll of uncoated wire or a metal hanger. To hang exhaust,etc.
    Medium size channel locks. You'd be surprised what these things can hold in place.
    Non-tool related:
    A tree saver- to save trees and not get land owners pissed at you winching out.
    Water and snack bars- to keep you going.
    Cell phone with a in-cab charger, in case you can't get yourself out.

Installed new hood with "hoodscoop". Installed Predator Side Steps. Replaced front chrome grill with customized color matched (Desert Sand Mica) grill with added TOYOTA lettering (also in matched color).
    This thread is very informative, indeed. I would just like throw my $0.02 in here, which by the way is just a small contribution.
    This is if you don't have one of these, I highly recommend that you get one of these "Spark Plug Torque Ratchets" from Koken. If you can't get one specifically from Koken then I recommend that you do get a small Torque ratchet specifically for spark plugs.

    The blower motor screws are actually 5.5 mm - the only .5 mm metric socket I've ever seen . 7/32 will work though.

    That's funny. I have the 5.5mm socket and I tried it. Maybe I wasn't patient enough... Thanks OP updated.

    I carry an extensive tool kit. When things go south, I'm glad that I always have cigars in the glove box and a small bottle of Jim Beam in my recovery gear bin. The bin is buried way in the back of the bed under the sleeping platform. If the whiskey was closer at hand, it might not be there in my time of need.

    Thanks for starting this thread Crom! One of these days I'll use it to make a checklist. I'm sure there are a few things on the list that I don't carry. I'm also sure I carry a hundred pounds of tools not on the list.

    Under 8mm and 11mm, you may want to add worm drive and/or T-bolt hose clamps as a reminder for those of us that replaced the oem hose clamps.
