    What's in your Jeep tool kit?

    Today I started a new project... Making sure I have everything I need tool wise to work on the Jeep.

    My goal is to figure out what I need to add to my ever growing collection of hand tools.

    Funny thing is this pic doesn't show my nut and bolt collection or the miscellaneous spare parts I carry.

    So let's see what you got! Suggestions for essential tools welcome!!!

    Subscribed as I am sure this will be an epic thread, one where a lot of people will learn from someone who is VERY knowledgable. In just my short 3 days with JeepFan a few weeks ago on the Rubicon Trail, I learned a lot. Thank you JeepFan!!!

    Great thread! I might just have to get all my tools out too and see what I got and what I need. Time for a reorganize anyways. Something i don't see in your pic that I carry and have used many times is a portable jumper box. I charge it every 3-6 months or so. We have one in each vehicle.

    Man I am way behind on this! I don't carry near this amount of tools. I have been thinking about beefing my jeep tools lately though. I consider one of my favorite tools to be common sense! We are out by ourselves frequently so I use that tool a ton!
    OP what's sheet metal scissors for?

    I agree, common sense is one of the most important tools for anyone who ventures off the beaten path.

    I've had those tin snips for 30 plus years and used them almost every day when i was a mechanic. They come in handy for cutting hoses, wire, cardboard templates, gasket material and, occasionally sheet metal.

    Wrench inventory! Looks like I'm missing some of the larger sizes above 20mm and 11/4".

    Might be some overkill here as well.

    Here is my toolkit all packed up. I learned from JeepFan the need for fluids and stole his idea on the box:

    I would recommend an axe, which I have used quite a bit. Not sure if that was included in this thread yet or in any pictures.

    Looks like a nice kit you have there! :thumbup:

    Going through the 1/4" drive metric, torx, allen and other sockets. May have to thin the herd. Many of these don't fit the Jeep anyway. Why carry the extra weight?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
