Personally I keep whats pictures then a millwakee 18 volt sawzaw and hammer drill, tow chain, bottle jack, some rope, tire downs, jumper cables and all sorts of fluids in my truck on the driveside floor.

I have found out you can have a 18 wheeler load of tools on the road and the one tool you need the most will be the one you do not have.


I guess you would need a big rig to take along a belt sander and radial arm saw. Where do you plugh them up?

Ditto....Fixer...I ran mobile for a few years...Never enough of the right tools or parts..
The most important thing to have on your truck is a good "JunkBox"....
A box filled with useless nuts..bolts..brackets..wiring...etc....

Amen, Fixer and Slapper. About the only occasion that I'll go out on a mobile is if I know the customer and if he is able to give me an understandable description after a bit of Q&A--even then it's difficult to win 'em all. On top of that, it's becoming difficult for my Scooter chair to pull the tool box!

Dutch... the though of you tugging around a toolbox behind your scooter is painting some ugly pictures in my mind....

Maybe RestroRob can help you " Mod" that scooter into something more usable...

Slapper, with those Rob mods, I'd be faced with the same dilemma that seems to be hounding him--all those Daisy Mae's and Swamp Mama's hangin' around.

Staying dry may be a challenge...already clicked over 2 inches today...
I was thinking a little more radical on the scooter upgrades...
Maybe the drivetrain from a YZ250...and it will need a good 8 track player...
You gotta have your Jerry Lee Lewis tapes.....and maybe a few parts from the Tijuana Taxi....
