If you know how to use the tool it helps. If you don't know what to do with it leave it home. I have a steering wheel puller in my box and know it wouldn't work on the air bag but may on the MH. I did have to use it once back in '70 on my '69 Lincoln in Omaha. They couldn't get to it until the next day and I did it in 1.5 hr. in the parking lot. My BIL would be lost if he had to tell what end of the screwdriver to hold.

I was looking for a place for my tools, but due to the NON PASS THRU compartments, a tool box was out of the question. The first drivers side compartment was useless, It was wide but very shallow. I guess good for gloves, rope and small items.

I decided to quickly throw together a make shift tool box to fit this area. If it works, then I would build a better box. THAT WAS THREE YEARS AGO.

here are two pictures of the temporary box.

Maybe this will give you some suggestions.

I have six stackable plastic tool boxes about the size of a loaf of bread. One is labeled "S" for standard wrenches, one is "M" for metric, one is "A" for adjustable wrench's, one is left blank for screwdrivers. Two additional but different color's for electrical items such as meter, wires, fuses, crimper's, tape, etc. Oh, and a larger box for ratchets & sockets 1/4, 3/8's & 1/2 hammers, and assorted larger tools. I like the smaller boxes since they are real easy to get out and take them where I need them. I tried a larger single storage container but seemed like I had to keep going back to it to get a different size or different tool. The only drawback I see is the box I usually want is on the bottom and I will need at least two boxes for any job.
