Wink Stuff for PT Tool Bag

Since I installed my Mopar subwoofer, I needed a bag to put in the back of my PT to keep the stuff I used to keep in the little cubbie where the subwoofer is now. So I got a nice Craftsman tool bag. But this roomy bag got me thinking that it might be nice to keep a more complete inexpensive tool kit in my PT. So instead of just jumper cables and few odds and ends, I decided to grab some cheap tools.

Below is just about everything I believe I might need while out and about. The only things I don't have yet are a Torx socket set I bought online and a good chisel. What you see below was either bought online, at a local pawn shop or at Joe Carter's discount tool shack in Little Rock. I also included a few spare tools I culled out of my good tools some time ago in favor of US-made stuff.

If there's anything else you think I need please feel free to suggest it.

A small hydraulic jack to take the place of that wind-em-up piece of crap they call a jack would be a good thing to have.

A 4-way lug wrench might come in handy too.

That sounds like all the stuff I keep in my truck already, believe it or not. But you forgot mold/fungus air sampling equipment, a bio-haz/dead body "go bag" and extra ammo.

I already own a two and a four-ton jack plus a couple of those 4-way lug wrenches. But my PT might start squatting a bit with all that in the back. Of course, that might be a cheaper option than lowering springs, I guess.

Roll of shop towels already visible in the third photo. +1 on hand cleaner. I don't know why I didn't thing of that. Some GoJo in the squeeze bottle should work nicely.

Talking Re: Stuff for PT Tool Bag

Gloves..1 pair-Full Leather Gloves(saved me from getting stitches MANY times!) & 1 pair-Mechanic's Gloves(good for fine work,and have padded knuckles!) and maybe even 1-Jersey/Cloth(for lighter work),and don't forget some good Safety Glasses,and maybe Googles too!(to prevent losing an eye,or even just scratching a cornea)

On the funnier side.....I've always thought it'd be cool to have on of these:

Also;Does anyone remember the 'X-Jack'????....Amazon.com: ARB 72X10US Recovery Gear and General Accessories: Automotive
