    Hey Guys

    My girlfriend has offered to buy me a tool kit for Christmas...
    I want U.S.A brand tools and a kit with everything I will need for my Tacoma. She is looking to spend no more than 200. What do you guys recommend?

    Yeap, can't beat Craftsman for the price. Lifetime warranty. I found a broken Craftsman breaker bar one time at a house I was renting out. Took it to Sears and they gave me a brand new one, no questions asked. :D

    I did not see the other thread yet so I will drop an answer here. I have been using Craftsman for many years without issue. They have made good tools and they back them up well. The only issue I have had with them is when you order them laser etched with your name in them they dont replace them with the name put back on, they just give you the new one. They are always having sales on the tool kits during Christmas, try Sears to see what you can scoop for $200, I bet you can get quite a bit. Good Luck!

    craftsman is ok... kobalt and husky make good stuff as well thats usually cheaper priced. if you have to use craftsman warranty, its either going to be super easy to impossible, depends on the associate you deal with i guess.
