Streamlight PolyStinger LED Flashlight — So I can actually see what I’m looking at.

Matco Tools Long Barrel Air ­Hammer — Frees up stuck-together parts.

Mac Tools AWP050 1/2” Impact Wrench — Turns those rusty frozen bolts.

Matco Tools MD1072 Enhanced Scan Advisor — To see why the check engine light is on, or look at the freeze-frame or live data on most modules in the vehicle!
