I was wondering what the ultimate carry toolbox for the Bronco. I am sure everyone has their own preferences of what they need. I am looking for things I might want to add, or maybe even drop from mine.


I will start things off with the contents of my Bronco Toolbox:
1/2" socket set with metric and standard + deep well for plugs
set of open end wrenches metric and standard
channel lock pliers, needle nose, lineman and regular pliers
flat and philips screwdrivers
set of hex wrenches for metric and standard
hacksaw, claw hammer
hatchet, file, small roll of emery sandpaper
assorted spare screws, 1/4 bolts and self tap screws
several pieces of 1/2x3/4x18" hardwood slats, nails
hand crank drill with a few bits
bailing wire, duct tape, electrical tape
tire repair kit (with the good T handles) and extra plugs
small compressor
leather work gloves, rubber gloves, rag
coil of 16g wire, splices
wire stripper/crimper, 12v tester
flat and glass fuses, wire ties
20' length of heavy chain with clevis on both ends
50' 1/4" rope
pack of emergency ration bars, bottled water
flares, flashlight

In my Mountaineer I also carry:
a 9v cordless drill converted to use 12v cig lighter plug.

Starting next week I'll be thinning my 3 boxes down to 2. I have all 3 in the rig right now 'cuz I live on the 2nd floor and I'm not carrying all that sh*t up & down the stairs. This is what it will be when I move into the new place with a garage.

1st box: Basically electrical. Top section has 12 little sections for assorted wire connectors, IE; eyes, spade m/f, etc.
pkg of zip ties
stripper
meter/tester
small ass't of wire mostly 12 & 14ga.
ass't elec tape (colored)
small ass't nuts/bolts/washers
pkg of shrink wrap
fuses
bottom half:
jumper cables
spare starter solenoid
2 spare belts
tire plug kit
spare marker/signal bulbs

2nd box: top
channel lox pliers
shorty adjustable wrench
phillips & standard screwdrivers (2)
utility knife
LED miners light
small mag-lite
spare compact reading glasses :toothless
bottom:
grease gun
soldering gun/paste/small coil of solder
18"x1/2" breaker bar
18"x1" cheater bar
1/2" drive impact socket (for the lug nuts)
can of starting fluid & can of pb blaster
timing light
pack of allen keys
12oz ball peen hammer
scotch-brite pad
half dozen shop rags

Then I have small set of Stanley ass't kit, 1/4" & 3/8" drive,
with standard & metric box/open wrenches. Closed, it's about the size of an average phone book. And sits nicely on top of the closed 2nd box.
Both of these boxes fit perfectly behind the front seats. Being that I run the soft top year 'round, with no rear seat, I have no need to worry about taking up that space. Eventually I will fasten them to the floor there so they don't thrash around off-road.

Sounds pretty normal. I add a bottle of motor oil and brake fluid and a host of ratchet straps.

Look at the jeep closly and you will see a bunch of straps holding a tree to the rear tire to keep it from walking out, as well as a bunch of oil to keep it from smoking the tree.

You have food and water in your tool box? I only keep tools in mine.
The bar rations only take up a 4"x4"x4" space in toolbox. I have it there because it is in a vacuum sealed package, don't want it to be punctured. Water bottles roll around at will :rofl:.

That is why I carry space C clips in my toolbox.
