Technically, it's not a Craftsman if it wasn't made in the US, or at least that's how I see it. I do still buy lots of tools at sears and they're great, but I only get the ones made here as all the other crap sucks.

When you buy tools specifically for a ZJ only to do one job that you know you're going to have to do again at some point.

When you permanently modify tools to "fix" something.

97 ZJ - 5.2L, 242, 4" IRO lift w/short arms & adj. TBs, JKS Discos/BPEs, DT3000s, Aussie'd 44A, sliders, bumpers, bunch o' skids, 31" Duratracs on 15x8s

I hate when people destroy **** in the JY. I can't tell you how many times I've gone for something for my Jeep or Caprice, or even someone else's car, to find the part I need is destroyed because I some ignorant *******.
