    What kind of tools do you carry?

    handsaw, socket sets, hammer, mini sledge etc. List 'em! Doesn't need to be flatbed specific.

    3/8,1/2,3/4" socket sets, Gearwrench's up to 1 1/4", 1/2" impact that I run of my air tank, I've carried my 1" before, but felt it was overkill. Propane torch for thawing. MULTIMETER (I buy them by the handful at Harbor Freight for $3) Real crimpers and wire strippers. I try to carry everything I may need to fix a million mile, 12 year old truck.
