    I have that and the 1/4 inch - they both work great.

    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.

    Truly, a great buy

    I have had the Tekton 1/2 drive for about 4 years now and as Eddie stated, is very easy to read, adjust and does a great job in the torque, pun intended, department.
    Thank you Eddie for pointing out tools and ideas that go a long way towards the upkeep and maintenance on our Jeeps.
    Courtesy is given. Respect is Earned.

    I don’t have that wrench, but I have a bunch of other Tekton stuff and it’s great for the Jeep. Most of their stuff comes with cases or carriers which are great to keep stuff from banging around.

    I agree with Sharkey's assessment. For what I needed, Tekton was good enough.

    I have both. So far, so good. As mentioned, they both come with a case. I don't use the small 1/4 inch much.

    I have some of their stuff, and it’s a lot better than the Harbor Freight tools. I bought a roll of combination wrenches, to keep in the Jeep, and they are actually pretty nice.

It was funny before owning the Jeep I didn't own a torque wrench. Now I own 4..haha.
    I use the same Kobalt from Lowes and it has served me well so far, but I have to admit seeing the $57 on the recommended Tekton makes me a little miffed! Lol.

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.
