I just recently added a tool box to my truck. I got it for a deal and had really been wanting one, but i didn’t really know what i was going to use it for. I have now found that i can’t live without it. I have a few things that live in there all the time that i will show you, but i also use it when i got to the store or just to stash stuff when i have other people in my truck and need the room.
The main things that i carry are my first aid kit, my jumper cables, and the beginning of my car kit. I have a break down of my First aid kit coming soon so I won’t go into that now. What I do want to talk about is the car kit. Right now there isn’t much in there, it is just in it infancy. If you have been with us for a while you might remember when I was having some battery trouble and was able to fix it with just my Leatherman. After the 3rd time I had to do that I decided it was time to carry some dedicated tools with me to make it easier.
So now I carry a set of wrenches with me, also not pictured is some spray to clean off my battery cables. So those tools fix the one problem with my car that i know how to fix, as I learn more about car repair I plan to add more tools. Also in the tool bag i have my Leatherman Wingman, as my dedicated car multi tool. Lastly I have two road flares, I picked these up at Walmart for just a few bucks thought it might be a good idea to keep them in the car.
The only other things I have in there right now are some bungie cords and wench tie downs, and my camera Tripod because you never know when you need to shoot some pictures.
I got this more as something fun for my truck, and it has turned out to be the tool box that I didn’t know I always needed.
