Christmas tools

basically looking for tools i will need for life. my parents asked me for a list of Christmas gift ideas and prefaced it with NO TRUCK PARTS. so i figure ill get tools to work on the truck

all i have so far is a 120pc craftsman mechanics kit, drill, heat gun, vice grips, files. i've been buying as i need but seeing as its i have an opportunity give me some ideas!

please and thank you

Torque wrench, wish I had one myself. Anything that runs off of air compressor is nice too.

What kind of dollar amount are we talking about?

You can get a pretty decent tool box for a reasonable price from Harbor Freight, the dull red expandable box.

As for tools..

Air Tools
- Air Compressor
- Impact
- Air hammer
- Air Ratchet

Battery Powered Impact

Trans jack or nice floor jack

Ratcheting wrenches

Electric Impacts

Wobbly Impact Sockets

what ever you buy just buy good quality, nothing worse than buying a cheap tool and then having to spend more money to replace it. I've learned this lesson years ago. start with a good quality tool box, I have a Snap On, full top and bottom. My company paid for half and then when i became a manager i took it home. now sits in my garage. 15 years old and still looks new.

3/8" or 1/2" cordless impact gun is a huge help, plus you don't need an air compressor, and you can take it with you on the road, or to help a friend out.
Of course, since I sell 'em, I'd recommend the Snap-on impacts, but that's just me....
