Nothing since I do not have a toolbox in the bed. Then I can't use my tonneau cover.

Not many guys buy tools because the ease of exchanging them WHEN they break...

I bought exclusively Snap On and Mac tools because they plain will last. Have fun breaking a 80tooth SnapOn ratchet, especially vs those cog-tooth wobbly craftsman ratches and sloppy wrenches. I prefer not to bust my knuckles with tools expected to break. Craftsman is great for the guy who has his little 'home fix it kit', or the guy that changes his oil every three months. If you turn wrenches for a living...you definitely don't go buying Craftsman hand tools because you can get them replaced when they break at any mall, should come with band-aids for your knuckles. lol.

Don't get me wrong, Craftsman isn't a horrible tool. They work, I've used them before, but the statement about SnapOn "hardly the best" sounds like it's from someone who either doesn't have anything Snap On, or has never used their tools. There is a difference...

I have never broke any of our snap-on stuff. I break crapsman stuff all the time. That is why they make it easier to get like a new socket when you break something. Snap-on is for the big time mechanics and crapsman is for us guys that are part time but serious about it. I have all different brands of tools.
