    Tekton makes both a 10 - 150 lb wrench ($38.52) and a 25 - 250 lb wrench ($55.41). I am about to order one but I'm not sure which to choose.

    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...

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

    Been using the Tekton from the OP for two years now, it’s 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 doesn’t rotate on me, but it hasn’t really been a big enough issue for me to test their replacement policy. Can’t beat the price.

    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 wife’s Explorer which requires 180 ft lbs. I picked one of these up today for $53 including tax.

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.
