    sleeper tool?

    What's your guys favorite sleeper tool? By that I mean a tool that some people probably don't have but don't know what they're missing out on.
    Personally, I see a ton of people that don't have gear wrenches yet. I think that's the best invention since duct tape. I get tons of use out of mine.

    I have a lot of specialty tools, but I like the good old belt tensioner tool.
    Long flat bar with 3/8 drive on the end and 1/2 in drive adapter for easy belt removal.

    I think if you ever started using the racheting wrenches you'll find more and more uses for them. I was the same way with my dremel. I hardly turned it on for the first year or two I had it and now I find tons of stuff that I use it on. I have 2-24" extensions I used on my bellhousing bolts but I found it easier to use a whole bunch of small extensions due to the wiggle room they gave me.

    I tell you another set that I get multiple uses out of. It's a double ended set of offset boxed end wrenches. I bought the cheap versions one time at autozone becaue I figured I'd only use them once or twice but they've saved my tail a few times. The tool of choice for pulling the distributor hold down bolt off on my 4.3 in my truck.

    the new gear wrenches with the swivel head are the SH!T!! Huge time saver! I like my S-K 1/2 and 3/8 swivel adapters.

    Those are going to be my next tool purchase. I'll donate my old gear wrenches to my little brother.
