i have most of the tools id need in a small kit. found it in the bottom of my dads toolbox. had a racheting screwdriver with interchangeable bits, and a 1/4 hex to 1/4 square adapter for the sockets that are in the kit. the racheting screwdriver broke when i tried to use it to crank off a door latch bolt, so i threw it out and put a 1/4 drive rachet in the kit. also put a 3/8 rachet in there with a 3/8 to 1/4 adapter for more leverage if i need it. added a pair of pliers and a pair of wire cutters too.

i like to travel light lol

I love my interior on my 95. Tan, leather seats, the wood grains all around. I do like the niner grill more though.

When you got a 90%complete set of metric and standard tools each in heir own craftsman bags, 5 camping chairs, 1 beach chair, 1 fold down table, a hunting cooler, 1 fishing pole with tackle box, a cast net. 2 machette's, a hatchet, a hand saw, tow hitch reciever bag(with assorted goodies inside),hydrolic jack with tire iron and a folding shovel in it at any given moment! Oh all with a full size spare in the stock location(31x10.50)

And it fits lovely! Even room for duffel bags and tents for camping trips!

Also, when you find one if your fav pits closed so you decide to bury the rear tires to the diff. in front of the new gate in protest.....then Jus crawl out of it in four low! Wife was like "great, now where stuck" kids where like "um, dad don't get stuck mom" that was when we crawled out!

What's cargo space? I got 2 12's in a ported box and a full size spare. Lol but on topic when you hear a noise, ask yourself is it till running fine or not? Then turn up the radio and keep driving if running fine.
