Trucks toolbag

I want to put a toolkit together for the truck.

I'm thinking:

1/4" deep socket/ratchet set SAE and Metric
Needlenose
Channel locks
Vise grips
Bailing wire
Side cutters
Small multi-meter
Flathead screwdrivers
#2 phillips
Cresent wrench
Small prybar


What am I forgetting? I don't want a suitcase full either, just the necessities for a roadside repair or diagnosis

I'd swap the 1/4" set for a 3/8. Or maybe just add the 3/8. I can't think of anything else right now.

Might want to throw in a torxs bit for the FICM cover so you can test the voltage. (I know that you have an insight, but i figured other people might see this thread).

Good idea by the way

actually they're 11mm (possibly 7/16 not sure)

maybe keep some kind of brake cleaner and trim stick adhesive incase you blow a boot


I've thought about making a 6.0 emergency kit but I'd have to put a cap on the back of the truck and haul around $20k worth of tools and parts

I'd upgrade to a 3/8" drive socket set. You also need the WD40, duct-tape, electrical tape, Zip-Ties, some alligator clips for your mulitmeter, and an all purpose hammer. Without getting too much into a bag that should be about it. Oh, and Fuses and crimp-on electrical conectors, one of those things folks always forget. I'd also suggest thowing a basic first aid in there as well, gloves bangages and the like. Seems roadside repairs take a toll on the hands more than others.
