@unksol I take my Ryobi high-torque along on road trips for both safety and roadside assistance. I also have several sizes of rsgular impact socket and extractor sockets, and a few spare lug nuts in the most common size. That has been useful on occasion.
@unksol Oh, I carry a lot more than just the impact gun. I’ve done repairs on the road, including a water pump on a Chevy van (in a grocery store parking lot), a U-joint (in an Autozone parking lot), a fuel pump (on old carburetor engines, by the side of the road - on two different vehicles), and alternators in two other Autozone parking lots.
@werehatrack i just consider those normal socket set repairs. Actually needing an impact… very rare but why not. There’s also an element of would I take this vehicle across country. Dropping a u joint would be very hairy at speed.
Replacing one cause you caught the vibration and it was going yup find the next parts store/lot
@Kyeh@medz the last irk was horrible. But they got me one last time with the irk in an irk. IDK why. It made me justify it to put in the box of monkies I never look at/the cats will eventually destroy… Meh
I’m now slightly wondering how much trouble I’d be in if I just gave every one a screaming monkey for Christmas…I don’t normally know what to get them and because I’m not a dick I don’t normally do that… But I’m very tempted to release chaos…
