    What do y'all have in y'alls toolboxes, or what do you think is important to have in them. So far I have:
    a bowsaw, work gloves, 30 feet of rope, allen wrenches, screwdrivers, and a fishing pole. :D

    But what else should I add to my toolbox that would be of good use if an incident ever came up and I needed something

    Guns i believe you have to have a concealed weapon permit, or have it visible...not positive. Although my step-dad has an AK-47 under his back seat, unless its upland bird season then he has an 1187.

    Carrying Firearms in Idaho
    Except in a person’s place of abode or fixed place of business, a person shall not carry a concealed weapon without a license to carry a concealed weapon. This shall not apply to any pistol or revolver located in plain view whether it is loaded or unloaded. A firearm may be concealed legally in a motor vehicle so long as the weapon is disassembled or unloaded.


    Anyways i have a tow strap, come along, tie downs, and jumper cables in a tote under the canopy...most the rest the stuff i had in the toolbox in my last truck is still in storage.

    I recently put together a toolbox for my truck. I have has bags and boxes in the past, but I wasn't happy with them. I finally found exactly what I wanted at sears 2 months ago. Its a craftsman professional series carpenter/plumber tool tote, 18"X8"X7" (approx). It has a ton of pockets of varying sizes inside and out, loops for pliers/ratchets, straps with velcro, pencil holders even a metal clip to hang your tape measure! It is awesome!
    [​IMG]
    As for whats in it, I have a lot.
    -small ball peen hammer,
    -24 piece 1/4'' SOCKET SET,
    -tool pouch with asst. screwdrivers, needlenose pliers, reg pliers, cicuit tester, couple -comb. wrenches.
    in the tote,
    -vise-grips,
    -*3/8'' socket wrench with, 1/2", 9/16", (all the bolts on my snowblowers are either or) -mixed deep sockets,
    -spark plug sockets,
    -6" ext.
    -12 piece nut driver set,
    -12 piece comb. wrench set (met. and sae) in a roll,
    -compartment box of nuts, bolts, washers.
    -19.2v craftsman impact wrench (awesome!)
    -keyhole saw,
    -leather nail pouch on the tape measure holder (tape measure in it.)
    -Linesman pliers,
    -wire cutters,
    -razor knife,
    -carpenters pencil.
    -box of phillips head bits,
    -*snow blower shear pins,
    -matches.
    I think thats about it. a lot of that stuff you wont need for the trail. I use most of that stuff a lot though
    Also under the seat is,
    -recovery strap,
    -flash light,
    -first aid kit,
    -swiss army knife,
    -leather gloves,
    -winter hat,
    -clevis hitch and shackle,
    -ratchet straps,
    -rope,
    -putty knife,
    -billy club.
    -bungee cords
    -black and decker charger/compressor/ac generator
    in the truck i always have
    -paper towels,
    -hand sanitizer,
    -maps
    a fire extinguisher is prob a goo idea too.
    This is a huge list and most of it you might never use. I fit all this stuff and I can assure you the tuck isn't cluttered, its very organized. If ur in so-cal u prob wont need *snow blower shear pins and a wool hat. I like to be ready and help others if I had to. Make your tool kit, box, tote to fit your needs. Sorry I got a little over the top with this one!

    I never got my truck camper top, so I had to keep my tool box.
    So I got in the box:
    200+ piece craftsman laser etched anniversary set
    10lb sledge hammer
    Green marking spray paint
    2 framing hammers, speed square along with my framers pouch
    craftsman tool box with random tools
    electrical pouch loaded with my klein tools
    axe
    tool carry bag with a craftsman hammer drill and extra batteries
    gloves and a bunch more
    'true blue' empire level and cheap plastic home depot level
    Tie straps and rope
    I can't remember everything else, but there is a lot more.

    Believe it or not it is all in my UWS black low profile shallow tool box. It all only goes in one way. I will try to take some pics. To say the least is packed!! :eek:
