    Same. I had a bunch of tools in college since I had room for them. Now I'm in a tiny apartment and just don't have the room.

    We have a great storage closet actually. Our roommates just very much like decorating for holidays so it is full of decorations...

    I keep all my tools in my truck. Really annoying to have them all bouncing around in back.

    I've got an 18v Ryobi drill. Doesn't break the bank and it's been great to me. Drilled 8 holes in my frame for sliders and didn't even break a sweat. Just needed a battery recharge halfway through since I was drilling for quite awhile.

    What're you going to primarily be using it for? The only reason I wouldn't get that and go with this kit is because this one's 18v vs 12v.

    Work around house and fastening bolts on 4runner. Mostly drilling drywall, driving screws into wood, and occasionally (as in one time most likely) drilling 6 holes in 1/8" steel.

    @.45 JHP how hard was it to run wire to your license plate to light it? I'm gonna copy you I think.

    The makita would be just fine for you then. It's .4 lbs lighter which is fairly significant after awhile of holding the drill, plus being 12v it'll charge faster

    You guys heard of luminoodles? Haha

    I got one for my RTT. Basically just a string of lights I can hang under it. It runs on USB so I have an external phone charger to run it. Testing out how long it lasts

    They have magnets too!

    I'm on a half charged battery and it's been running for 3 hours today so far.

    Very low draw.

    You can either plug it in to USB or a battery pack. I have the pack camping anyway for my phone in the tent

    I have no power and was aired down to like 15psi from the day before, was a struggle to get it to break traction. Looks cool in photos though
