    Whew... survived the first night with puppy. Still no name. Hailey (my daughter) is using significant veto power on names. So many have been run out that I don't even know what is in the running anymore... He will get named-it won't be Taco, I assure you. Knucklehead possibly.

    I almost just bought it. But, my M12 has the same torque spec. I really don't need it. :rolleyes:

    If there was a deal like that on the mid-torque M18 1/2" drive, I would probably get it.

    I don't have any M12 stuff, but I really should :(

    The mid-torque M18 1/2" drive is $160, been watching that also. I have a 10 year old non-Fuel model which still works fine though, it's just big and clunky.

    Now I've got this thread, the master tech next to me, and a buddy all sending me Milwaukee coupons and pressuring me to upgrade.

    Must.

    For small stuff I have M12s. I've got
    Drill
    1/4 impact
    Sawzall
    Rotary tool
    multi tool
    The 1/4 inch impact works great but falls short when doing bigger jobs(deck).
    Big stuff is Dewalt 20v. I went with Dewalt because it all started with my wife getting me the drill for Christmas.
    I have the 1/4 impact driver and used it for a project (elevated deer blind). Did almost the whole thing on 1 5Ah battery.

    I have the mid-torque M18 that came with a kit, probably the old version from about 2 years ago. So far it's held up to what I've thrown at it, almost able to get rid of the old air impact. Air gun is only used now where I need it to come off or break in the process. I constantly use the M18 5.25" circ, impact driver, and drill.

    And like others have said M12 stuff is for small jobs. I don't have many tools in that line for now, first one was the rotary tool and it already helped a couple times to get in tight spots. Runs for a surprisingly long time. Been happy switching to Team Red.

    I need to revamp the toolkit for the truck. Changed the hilift jack for the HFT/pro eagle setup and I have been grabbing stuff from the garage toolboxes. I just want to have stuff ready to go without thinking about it. Especially if I get caught in a bad spot.

    I have the Fuel high torque 1/2" drive, and it will pretty much remove or break anything. It's big and clumsy, though. I have the M12 fuel 3/8" drive, and it has enough power for most projects.

    I really don't need another impact. I probably should ignore this conversation and hide my wallet from myself. :D

    ok so these are the wheels I think I’m set on but I got a couple questions so with 265/70r17 and a -12 offset would I have rubbing I know that’s the max tire you can have on stock suspension without rubbing but idk if that offset would cause some rubbing. Im fine with doing some trimming as long as I can keep my mud flaps. Also another question it says I need to use conical acorn style w/60 degree tapered end lug nuts but how do I know what size to get?

    Can't speak on offset.

    Lug nuts are 12 x 1.50

    At one point I had that size tire combined with a -10 offset wheel. Rubbed slightly on the plastic fender liner when backing up and steering at full lock. Nothing a heat gun and minor trimming couldn't solve. Not sure about the mud flaps, I didn't have any installed.

    Edit - This was on a 3rd gen, just saw you have a 2nd gen.

    I have that exact combo now with the -10 offset. If you are still using stock UCA and alignment specs it will rub at full lock in reverse going down a driveway, and will definitely rub on front mudflap and the little air dam on lower part of front bumper. Removed both of those and fixed alignment, no more rubbing.

    Edit: image of the front air dam thingy, probably there for EPA/MPG but frankly I found it's relatively useless.

    The front air dam is basically a gimmick for EPA. It's funny cuz half the trims don't even have them. But if you get a tundra capstone limited or sport, it has an electric air dam that's self-deploys when you hit certain speeds. Very cool. Very obnoxiously useless and in the way all the time.
