Jk common size all mm
8 -10-12-15-17-18
And torque bits



For these sockets, should I buy deep set sockets, or regular.  Am trying to fill out my tool bag now.

I don't recall needing deep wells for those sizes.


For the JK
Get a 13mm, 12 point for the front axle unit bearing bolts

Get a 19mm, will work on Lugnuts

I would also do 20, 21 and 22...trackbar bolts and CA bolts

Big daddy 35mm for front axle shaft nut

I have quickly seen the advantage to having a literal "tool kit" that can be folded and closed up and easily stored over a giant heavy bag of junk like I carry. I tend to carry a ton of stuff with me on the trails and really need to digure out a good storage solution.

JK specific - When I read on various forums some say 36mm some 35mm for axle shaft, why?  Are they so close in size it doesn't matter?

36 is a touch loose.   35 is touch tight. 

I choose 35mm and it has worked perfectly for me.

I really like my roll bag.  One of the guys on here suggested using the tools in your trail bag during maintenance and build activities to determine what is actually needed...It was a great suggestion.

Yes, it's how I work on the Jeep.  If I need something else, it goes in the bag.  I need to weigh my bag.  Heavy as hell.

I have recently added 1/2" ratchet, extension, and 19mm socket.  It is possible I have more stuff in the roll bag.  I have two styles of roll bag, one is canvas and the other is nylon.  I prefer the nylon one in the picture.
