If you like to work on your own Jeep as much as I do, there's one tool that you absolutely need to have and that would be a torque wrench. Unfortunately, a good torque wrench can cost a LOT of money and it can be hard to justify especially if you don't do a ton of work on your Jeep and on a regular basis. Over the years, I've owned and used a wide variety of torque wrenches including dirt cheap ones from Harbor Freight and while were able to get the job done, the quality of their construction was so poor, they eventually fell apart on me. Needless to say, I started to look for a more, middle of the road torque wrench - something that was made better, could handle up to 250 ft. lbs. of torque and without costing a small fortune. And, that's when I came across the TEKTON 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench.

Click below to buy now:
TEKTON 24340 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench (https://amzn.to/2MFWs2Y)

Unlike my last Craftsman torque wrench, the TEKTON has NO plastic parts to break or wear out, the dual-range scale it comes with is very easy to read and with a 26" length, you'll have a lot more leverage to get big bolts and nuts tightened to spec and with ease. Also, according to TEKTON, this torque wrench comes pre-calibrated with a +/- 4% accuracy.

At a cost of only $57 on Amazon, I've found this torque wrench to be an amazing buy and one that's been serving me well for quite some time now. And, it is for all these reasons that I am now making it a RECOMMENDED BUY.

BOUNS BUYThere are plenty of things on your Jeep that need a more delicate inch pound tightening and the follow inch pound torque wrench is what I would recommend.

LOL!! Funny, I still carry a HF one on the trail and more than likely, you have the same Craftsman that I had. Worked great up until the plastic adjuster broke. :rolleyes2:

Wish I had known about this when I was in the market for one. I have a Kobalt one I bought a Lowes. It's all metal and has worked well so far but I think was $150. I used a friends digital 1/4" inch lb torque wrench. That thing was awesome but I cannot see spending that kind of money on something I'd use a few times a year. It was funny before owning the Jeep I didn't own a torque wrench. Now I own 4..haha.

I had a HF 1/4 in but it never "clicked" or made any other indication that torque was reached, cracked one of the bolt holes on the throttle body intake but gorilla glue to the rescue!

HF went in the trash.

I've had this for a couple of years now and it's been great.

A quick tip though: the instructions say to turn the adjuster all the way to the lowest setting for storage. It is easy to accidentally go below the 10 # mark, don't. You'll have to take it all apart to get the tourque "clicker" back in the right spot.

Ironically enough a lot of their items are the exact same product just rebranded and a different color. Especially the hand tools. I do prefer the torque wrench though. Doesnít do that annoying thing where the lock screw gets stuck when you adjust the setting.

HF uses many different makers and suppliers. As does Tekton so I guess itís possible for a run or two in the past they were the same. If you bought Pittsburgh wrenches that happened to be rebranded Tektons you lucked out for sure.

In this case however. Tekton is quite a bit better than anything you can get in harbor freight.

I totally understand where you're coming from especially when it comes to inch pounds. On big bolts that require higher torque, I personally don't see it as being as big of an issue. Be nice if everyone could afford a Snap On but I know most have a hard time justifying it. For me, I'd rather see guys working on their Jeep and to the best of their ability than not. But then, that's just me.

You must have spare cash to burn ;). I definitely get some of the snapon stuff and have owned tons of their stuff, but in many areas, they are grossly overpriced. As important as torque is, I think if cheaper brand torque wrenches had a high rate of failure, that information would be widely known. I don't feel that I need to pay Snapon prices for a torque wrench.

I had this same torque wrench for about 2 days and wound up returning it.

The torque values were significantly off compared to my calibrated wrench with a similar range at work. At 200lb/ft, I was getting about 170lb/ft. The value differences were all over the place, too. 150 was 145, 250 was 240... If the differences were similiar across the range, I would have adjusted the end of the handle until I got close, but the adjustment made it even worse.

Maybe I was unlucky and received one bad apple. Amazon offered to make right by sending another one, but I was in a time crunch and wound up borrowing from a friend. So, I opted for the refund. I'll most likely order again in hopes for a winner the next time I need it.

Obviously if someone already owns a torque wrench they are happy with they wouldnít buy this. Unless they want a spare for their trail kit of course. And this is an excellent option for that and the home user who is building their tool collection.

A new TechAngle 1/2Ē drive Snap On is 600 bucks. Forgetting about the price it is also waaay overkill for just about everything a DIYíer would need. Having to remember to keep new batteries and remove them could be problematic also if you donít use it daily.

I owned that digital Snap-On torque wrench and I would have been far better off with the Tecton one. The angle counter was nice but it frequently lost its calibration. I sent it in for warranty 3 times in 6 months before I told my dealer where he could stick it. I now use an older Snap-on clicker with a quick thumb screw adjustment that I absolutely love. Setting the desired torque only takes a second.

Itís probably the heaviest torque wrench Iíve ever used for its size. One in each arm, can start doing curls :).

If you like to work on your own Jeep as much as I do, there's one tool that you absolutely need to have and that would be a torque wrench. Unfortunately, a good torque wrench can cost a LOT of money and it can be hard to justify especially if you don't do a ton of work on your Jeep and on a regular basis. Over the years, I've owned and used a wide variety of torque wrenches including dirt cheap ones from Harbor Freight and while were able to get the job done, the quality of their construction was so poor, they eventually fell apart on me. Needless to say, I started to look for a more, middle of the road torque wrench - something that was made better, could handle up to 250 ft. lbs. of torque and without costing a small fortune. And, that's when I came across the TEKTON 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench.

Click below to buy now:
TEKTON 24340 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench (https://amzn.to/2MFWs2Y)

Unlike my last Craftsman torque wrench, the TEKTON has NO plastic parts to break or wear out, the dual-range scale it comes with is very easy to read and with a 26" length, you'll have a lot more leverage to get big bolts and nuts tightened to spec and with ease. Also, according to TEKTON, this torque wrench comes pre-calibrated with a +/- 4% accuracy.

At a cost of only $57 on Amazon, I've found this torque wrench to be an amazing buy and one that's been serving me well for quite some time now. And, it is for all these reasons that I am now making it a RECOMMENDED BUY.

BOUNS BUYThere are plenty of things on your Jeep that need a more delicate inch pound tightening and the follow inch pound torque wrench is what I would recommend.

I believe I may use the settings below 25 lbs more often than the settings above 150 lbs but I don't know for sure. Hoping someone with greater experience than I could weigh in on my question. Thanks!

Before I bought my Jeep I did not have any torque wrenches. Now I own 4..haha. The first one I bought was a HF 10-150. I used it for bead locks. I didn't like the way it felt and purchased a 20-150x3/8" Kobalt. Once you get over 100lbs you'll need extra leverage. That's when I purchased the 25-250x1/2" Kobalt. I also acquired an inch pound torque wrench and bought a beam type inch pound torque wrench. The two Kobalt wrenches are my go-to. The larger one is too big for tight areas and the small one just isn't enough for everything. Hope this helps...:crazyeyes:

Edit: Rereading it I realized that's a really 5 wrenches...haha

Haha! Yes it does help! Thanks for the advice!

I'll start with the 10 - 150 wrench...

Been using the Tekton from the OP for two years now, itís been great. After about 6 mo of use or so the little knob that is supposed to hold the torque setting started to pop loose during use, so I have to watch that the setting doesnít rotate on me, but it hasnít really been a big enough issue for me to test their replacement policy. Canít beat the price.

Do you guys have a recommendation between the 10 - 150 lb vs. the 25 - 250 lb wrench? Thanks!

If it hasn't already been mentioned, you can find it here https://amzn.to/2oQQoKR

Another addition being tekton, I picked up their 15 set of wrenches from 8mm to 22mm that come in a rolled tool bag. Got tired of searching for wrenches in the bags I had.

My current torque wrench works fine but only goes up to 150. I need to change struts on my wifeís Explorer which requires 180 ft lbs. I picked one of these up today for $53 including tax.

Learned something new today. Donít put external URLís in Amazon reviews. I also learned that since they rejected my review, the system will not accept a new review of the same item or allow me to edit the review. [emoji849]

I bought the 10 - 150 ft. lbs. of torque version by accident. Is there anything on the Jeep that needs more than 150 ft lbs of torque? I can exchange it on Amazon if this larger one is necessary.

Only things are the sector shaft bolt and pinions nuts if my memory serves me correctly
