Vehicle Emergency Kit, Part 2: Road Tools

Gerber This is a short list of tools that can really save your behind if you find yourself in trouble:
If you own a newer truck, you don’t really need to carry a toolbox.  What you do need is a pair of channel lock pliers, vise grips, an adjustable wrench, a Leatherman-style multi-tool, and straight and Phillips screwdrivers. A tire plug repair kit (use only as a temporary fix), battery cables, and a pry bar can also come in handy, as can zip ties, duct tape, wire, and a good flashlight with new batteries.

Gerber has a great kit for about $150.  Hit this link to buy one from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005A1HG/ref=ase_lookbooksto00-20/002-3813704-0334438?s=hi&v=glance&n=228013&tagActionCode=lookbooksto00-20

Tomorrow I’ll talk about cheap winches.
