Also bought a new Alcoa Cap. Was missing one before.
Where did you go offroading??

Nice. They seem to like to come off real easy. I think it might be a good idea to epoxy them in.

Just installed a Weatherguard Saddle 154 toolbox. It is beautiful. Also retrofitted Whelen PAR32 LED fog lights. I will upload pictures of these new goodies shortly.

New Toolbox pictures:


Inside: Basic Hand Tools, Breaker Bar, 1/2 Drive Impact Sockets, Dewalt 20V Brushless Impact with (2) 4.0a batteries, 2 Dewalt Bit sets+socket adapters, Jumper Cables, 20' Tow Strap w/ Hooks, Ratchet Straps, Emergency Blanket, and 6 ton Bottle jack.

Any recommendations of other things that you think a college kid should have in his toolbox (mostly for emergencies)?

Recently, I installed a pair of Whelen PAR32. I work at Whelen Eng. Co. and I can attest to their quality. They use two TIR3 reflectors stacked on top of on another. They are the brightest LED fogs available. I know this because I test the light output of Whelen & the competition. A fellow Engineer and I replaced the red LEDs with brighter white LEDs to use as fogs (as we had no white fogs in stock). I then fabbed up an aluminum adapter to adapt from the factory Ford fog mounting holes to the Whelen PAR32 studs. I could not be happier with the outcome. And to make things better, I have driven 600 miles at night with them on so far and I haven't been flipped off/flashed once so I'm fairly confident I'm not blinding anyone. The fogs are designed to project downwards ever so slightly. Enjoy:

A high lifter jack is also a good idea.
