Best gadget you have found for working on your jeep.
 
I recently found a baseball hat at Lowes when i was returning some torx bits i broke.

The light has LED lights in the brim so where ever you look you have light. Its a silly things but for 16 bucks its been worth it every time i have had to go under my jeep. Its a good hat on top of having built in useful lights :D

Angle grinder. Removes fuel lines, removes rust, excess metal, reshapes metal, gets rid of unnecessary wiring harnesses, removes bolts, and more! It can even make an entire Jeep disappear.

Disclaimer: Six fires so far.

When on the trail, another Jeeper with the ONE (insert tool or spare part) I forgot to bring.

At home, a welder. It opens a whole world of new horizon's for you.

The best gadget for working on my Jeep is Advil. My body aches from head to toe and Advil makes it tolerable.:dunno: :laugh:

OTC 6297 Ball joint separator and reversible Gear Wrenches. Combined, I feel like I can take apart an entire jeep in minutes.

Ratcheting box end wrenches and open end wrenches.

Crow's foot wrenches.

A "blue tip wrench", AKA cutting torch. Open holes, apply heat to break things loose, bend things, bend things back, it is the go to tool for me. There is nothing better to change universals in axle/driveshafts. Just cut the suckers in half. Remember to remove the zerks first or you might get a jet of hot grease in the face though.

I have to agree, not as young as I used to be!

The beforementioned Ratchet box wrenches are pretty nice. I've had both sae and metric for years and find them a lifesaver when you can't get a full ratchet in. Still doesn't replace my ratchet, as sometimes you need that depth to turn!

Y'all were both pretty close. The answer is bourbon. Better tasting than beer, and more effective in dulling the pain than advil.

I have a bamboo stick (About 3 feet long) that I stick in my cup holder to push up on my safari top when I know its going to rain. Instead of coming out to a lake I come up to a tent like dry top :2thumbsup:

Well, at least good beer. None of that wimpy light stuff! I try to save the bourbon for after, otherwise I might end up with over tightened muffler bearings and some lost diesel spark plugs.

Garage fridge is my best addition to the shop. Cold beer always within reach.
