My 5 favorite tools are:

Blue Point Air Lift Cooling System Filler — This is the absolute best way to fill a cooling system. It pulls the entire cooling system into a vacuum then sucks the proper coolant back into the system with no air. No waiting for the thermostat to open.

Snap-on 1/2” Drive Cordless Impact Gun — The strength of an air gun without an air line. It offers massive torque for removal of wheel nuts with reliable torque for retightening. Awesome!

Mac Tools WDC200B Wire Strippers — These have always been my favorite. You can strip a wire mid-wire. They retain the wire and push off the insulation.

The famous Power Probe — Reliable power and ground wherever you need it. It features a built-in circuit breaker, so you don’t have to worry about damage. I think this is everyone’s favorite.

Snap-on PWZ2 Adjustable Pliers — This tool is compact while maintaining a strong tightening force. It is excellent for turning tie rod ends during wheel alignments.
