Best part is, IF you run out of juice, you can always charge the batteries back up. I have done this and while it may take some time, you can't refill a CO2 on the trail.
    That's a great point. Another benefit of going as a group as well. As is, I pretty much need to buy all those tools myself since I often go solo. Till I can afford the nice electric stuff, good old hand tools for me.

    The only tool I always carry with me is an angle grinder. Perfect for cutting, sanding and prepping an area that needs to be welded back together again. Aside from that, I too just carry hand tools. When I have friends along, they carrying things like impact wrenches and the like.

    Eddie, how do you power your angle grinder? Do you use the inverter built into the jeep? Or do you use an aftermarket inverter that has more than the150watt capacity that the jeep inverter has?

    I carry Milwaukee M18 cordless tools. The batteries last a long time and can be recharged on the trail using the plug in your Jeep.

    That's one thing that is on my list to save up for is the ARB twin. My father n law just gave me a Co2 tank so I'll be using that until I can get a compressor.

    I love Milwaukee cordless stuff. Even their M12 stuff is really nice.
