I want to put together a small and efficient tool kit for emergencies.
Are all nuts / fasteners on a FJ metric , or is the vehicle a mixture
of SAE & Metric ?
Any suggestions on the top wrench sizes to carry ?

I cary both, the FJ is made in Japan so it's all Metric, I also carry SAE for aftermarket parts and for others that break down on the trail. :)

The FJ is all metric, but you never know when you may need to help some one else out. Because some day you to will need some ones help. :bigthumb:

10mm, 13mm, 14mm, 19mm and 21 mm are the most used, but by the time you've bought those you might as well just buy a whole set. Get a 24mm and a 10mm hex wrench if you intend to change drive line fluids and a 35mm if you might have to do wheel hubs. Sockets do not take up much space; recommend you get 6-point ones.

In conjunction with the stock tire iron I've added a 1/2" drive torque wrench and carry 10mm 12mm 14mm 17mm 19mm 6 point 3/8" deep sockets, 1/2" to 3/8" adapter, screw driver, wire clipper/wrench, all of which fits inside the torque wrench case which then fits nicely ontop of where the stock sub should be.

Metric as the others have said, however a lot of aftermarket/add-on stuff is SAE. I asked the same question when I joined the forum (i.e. first Japanese vehicle).. The forum members have been much kinder to you.. LOL.. I had Jeeps for the last ten years and they are a mix of SAE and metric. Either is better than a mix. The roadtrip bag is essential; some have dedicated kits for the vehicle and others pack from the home tool set. I actually do both. I have a rubbermaid action packer (35X19X12) that stays in the FJ all the time. It's mostly empty when at home, other that a tarp and movers blanket and I use it for a shopping basket. It holds most anything I need to pick up and it stays put. When packing for a road trip, I fill it with my road emergency stuff and pack a travel tool kit from my home/garage tools.. Cheers

PS: Only the Snap-On truck has a complete kit.. and they don't have spare parts..

Keep both SAE and Metric. Never know who might need a hand or if and when you are going to need to improvise. :D

Welcome aboard!

BOTH>>>>If you do a search (back like a year or so) there are some threads that have complete lists of everything (sometimes even a kitchen sink). They get kinda big and if you carried every thing you might need a trailer:lol:. But it will give you an idea what to start with then just build from there....
