2006, how much is metric/sae?

I have a full set of sockets. 1/4,3/8 and 1/2 drive, metric and sae, deep and shallow.

I'm putting a kit together to keep in my wheeling bag (which has compressor,towstraps,tirerepair kit,etc) which i keep in the truck at all times.

I'm going to have the 3/8 metric in there always for my dirtbike.

What else should I bring?

I dont know how much of the truck is metric or SAE, and I hate that it's mixed!!!

I kept hearing that the Ranger is still half and half...

So it's almost 100% metric?
