Lazy Mans Tool Roll(Already prefilled)

The Title above says it all. Looking for a Tool Roll that's pre-made for the FJ...that is sorta trail ready-as much as one might be commercially. Is there one sold by a manufacturer... that is a good base or at least minimal to take on the Trail that can be purchased? I know...lazy!

P.S. I know- the lazy man will end up being the 'stranded man'.

Re: Lazy Mans Tool Roll(Already prefilled)

Here is what I did...note the roll does not come with the tools. I know it is not pre-filled, but is it really that much harder to order everything from one source? I especially like the gear wrenches because each one covers four different metric sizes.

plus added in a handful of zip ties, both large size and small size. Supplemented with the pliers/screwdriver in my multi-tool this will cover most small things.

Starting over!!!!!!! 2014 Magma

Much like 1st aid kits....tool rolls are based on the individuals skills.

Mine is a hodgepodge of old tools, and misc crap.

Basics

I like this roll because it has pockets for sockets

Beyond that you will need...like modding your FJ, start with the basic stuff and add specialty tools as you need them.

Metric sockets/rachet/extensions
spark plug wrench/socket
metric wrenches
#2 phillips screw driver
flat head screwdriver
decent EMT shears
Multi tool
Decent folding knife
scribe
Zip Ties
Duct tape
Pencil/paper
Lighter
wire stripping/cutting tool.

Re: Lazy Mans Tool Roll(Already prefilled)

Briereos and Hindsight...thanks for the insights. You got me convinced I need to build it. That Arsenal Tool Roll is a must.

Thanks for getting me a head start.
