I have both the 3/8" and the 1/4" drive versions (non-Fuel). Honestly, there's not a lot of difference in the size of them. The 1/4" has a slightly smaller head, as you would expect, but the body of them is identical. The 3/8" gets a lot of use. It beats the crap out of dragging an air hose around and trying to get into tight spaces. I generally keep the 1/4" under the back seat of the truck for on road use, so it doesn't see a lot of action.

I don't see a lot of need for the 1/2" drive version. On the few occasions I may need the 1/2" drive, the 3/8" with an adapter can be used.

Exactly my thoughts as well! I love having one in the truck and so far the battery is holding up well enough in the heat,

I bought the standard M12 because it is more “petite”. Not as strong, but no regrets. It still can be tight, only showing that the fuel version wouldn’t work in some spots. Home Depot has a bunch of “buy this and get free this” deals, including some batteries for free. They usually have the best pricing, and are 10% off for vets. My 9amp batteries will run my large leaf blowers for over an hour straight.
That 3/8" stubby is an fantastic tool! I love mine.

For anyone wanting the best OBDII dongle for the money (personal opinion). You can get an OBDLink MX+ on Amazon right now for $60.00. It's normally $80.00.

Agree on the batteries. Temps don't seem to bother them much, hot or cold.

@Toren recommended the 1/4 because the torque was so close to the same and the head fits into smaller spots.
i went with it and love it
i have a 3/8 adapter that fits right over the 1/4 and it just works great.
bonus i bought the m12 impact and got the wrench for free amazing deal
i will grab the 3/8 at some point too because i like the idea of having both on hand but it makes things easier and faster...win win
i would like to get an m 18 imact at some point too. those things are amazing but even my little m12 puts out at least 100fp and i got no complaints there so

The 3/8" mid-torque (friction ring) M18 impact is next on my list. 450 ft-lbs. Hoping for a good sale somewhere!

FICM Sync 0.0 ... FMP 48 volts

Recently purchased 2006 250 6.0 266,000 miles ran for a couple of weeks than died
former owner recommended shop that diagnosed 1 bad injector so they replaced
it and supposedly installed new seals on all injectors former owner handled transaction
First day after driving about 5 miles it stalled.It started and I limped home losing power.
Have been doing much diligence and am learning
Diesel Tech Ron has educated
me considerably ...God Bless Him how terrible to lose such a generous expert.and Kind man.
Wise men seek council ...I am seeking ...
Tested fuel pressure it was 70 under load ... have basic understanding of HPOS
Have replaced ICP sensor and pigtail
Using Torque Pro App
FICM Main Power 48.5
ICP 2.5 Volts key on goes to 10 even higher when engine runs
FICM Sync 0.0 no Value understand I need 1.0 or yes value to confirm signals from Crank and Cam positioning sensors
IPR goes to 84 understand 85 is closed and signals dumping of pressure
ICP is less than very low today started building at 30 and after much cranking built to 500 and started and engine surged ICP got to 1500 and than dropped causing stall it sounded like there was no oil in it when engine surged I know I need 500 PSI just to start
Am going to install new dummy plugs stand pipes and all seals including nipple with new STC seals and clean and rebuild IPR new screen and o rings
Have not air tested it yet will do this week just figured to do it all
have had 12 volts battery but I know 1 is weak will replace
Am I missing anything....thanks much for any and all input ...I am the guy who dropped the thermostat housing bolt into the block did get it out...
