    So i decided i should just go ahead and buy a tool set so i am not so dependant on others to get shit done on my truck.

    how is this for a first set? good deal??

    http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00935154000P?adCell=B3

    probably gonna get a torque wrench as well... any other tools that are good to have for a lot of jobs on the truck?

    not looking to get too much but sears is addictive... hopefully if i go in with a list i can stick to it :D

    For $100 that looks pretty good to me. I think I have the same set and I paid more a few years ago. The case I had for mine sucked! Sockets never stayed in their homes worth a shhh. Just this last weekend I bought a bunch of those cheapy Harbor Freight socket strips and 86'd the case. Something to keep in mind. I'm pretty sure Craftsman now makes cases that stand up and have drawers instead of the fold out briefcase style.

    oh wow yea lots. but I got that kit, looks to be about the same, in 2002 so since then I have added tones of stuff to it. I would say the most valuable additions were as follows:

    1. socket wrench extensions
    2. 18" breaker bar
    3. set of deep well impact sockets (metric)
    4. Jack and Jack stands
    5. hammer & a bigger hammer.

    yeah they have some sets with drawers but those are bigger sets... closer to $200+


    it would be nice to get those but i don't need all that right now and can't afford it

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    my dad has that kit and i absolutely fucking hate the case that the tools come in. I have two sets of my own, both of which i have no problems with the case. Every time you open that thing half the tools fall out.

    Looks like a good start. Now the bug is gonna bite and you'll always want more.

    I started with something similar and now i have thousands of $$$ invested in tools.

    already got the jack and jack stands

    is there anything different than a breaker bar bought at the store and an 18" piece of pipe?

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    I'd take the $99 and put it toward a kit w/o a case. Every time you open it, the wrenches fall out and thus knock the sockets out. And if you lift the case up while its closed, there is enough room for the sockets to fall out of their spots. Just wanted to warn you. I have all craftsman tools, i'd recommend the tools.

    i would imagine it would be more expensive to buy individual wrench and socket sets vs. buying that big kit with the case?
