I got this from a firend of mine who was cleaning out all the old Jeep stuff from his garage. He bought a Mini Cooper.. Nice to get free Jeep parts.
|Here's what you get. A nice little box with Jeep on it. A small pouch to hold your tool, and of course the tool and instructions with pictures. We all know we look at the pictures long before reading the instructions.|
|The front and the back.|
|To open the pliers you flip the small black lever on the side and they open. I squeezed down on a bolt and was able to feel the handle deflect under my palm. So while it is probably okay for holding a nut while you tighten it, I wouldn't try to treat it like a vise grips. It does have a wire cutter at the base of the pliers.|
|Ahhh the finger cutter offer..... They were so kind as to include a nice sharp NON-LOCKING knife. Not at all impressed with this feature.|
|The adjustable wrench. Comes with a really nice little thumbwheel to turn and a tiny bar to hold the moveable jaw. Now I was actually pretty inpressed that this did not deflect open when I tried to turn a nut. I was a little concerned with the small bar, but it does hold pretty good.|
|The accessory screwdriver bits. You get a #2 phillips and two different size flat bits (1/4" and 1/8"). They slide out of the rubber holder and install in the tool in two different positions. One on the side of the pliers and the other in the front of the pliers. They actually do a pretty good job of turning screws.|
|Can't forget the handy belt, pocket, pants, boot, shirt pocket, etc... clip on the back. It really does a good job of keeping this thing right where you put it.|
|I did break out my trusty Gerber tool from the Jeep as a comparison. They are about the same size if you collapse the Gerbers needle nose pliers back inside. The Gerber is about twice the weight and all the tools lock in position.|

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
