For you Snap-On junkies

Of course it wouldn't have gone down like this if Facom was more widely available, but...

If you come to The Rover Group and ask for a starter field kit, this is what you get:

as is the parlance of our times, "BAM!"

What is this for?

Obviously it's going to be pricey, but if one was starting from scratch it would be a very nice kit to have.

Commonly referred to as a booger picker, it can be used to unseat hoses, pluck out o-rings, and fulfill it's named useage.

That's really a nice trail set, Jack. Have you had clients ask for something like that?

Yes I have.
The kit pictured above was assembled for a client. Not everyone is looking for this type of set or this quality of tool, but for some it's just right for starting out.
I've helped friends put together similar Rover-oriented tool kits with CLC products but often with a lesser tool manufacturer. When it came to providing a TRG trail kit for clients I really insisted on using a high quality manufacturer such as Snap-On because of their excellent warranty and availability to compliment our own. Our standard warranty for parts AND labor is 2 year 24,000 mile which is usually double the norm. It's pretty extensive and I feel it is one of the real selling points of the shop's work so I wanted our tool kit to be accompanied by similar piece of mind.

I happen to be the recipient of this kit. As always Jack, your knowledge and advice will sure come in handy on the trails. I need to fine tune some of the tools but its almost everything I'll need out there! Beside's Rover's (such as my D90) never break down, Right??

Now that you've got your field kit, any sort of failure will just be a welcome opportunity to break it out.
Of course, ideal would be busting out the Snap-On to help someone else.
Too cool.

John can attest that if you break out the XT7100 with the Power Tank on the trail for the routine tire change, jaws will drop.

here's a thin-wall double sided impact socket. requires impact extension though.
15/16" for the radius / trailing arm bolts, 1 1/16" for lug nuts:

nice for the field set.

Definitely nice. Get the long anvil for the IM3100 and you're good to go.

After looking at this thread, I need a smoke.....something in a habano......maybe with a nice glass of Oban


[quote]Use your field set whenever you work on your vehicle, and don't use the tools from your toolbox. It will become immediately apparent if you're lacking a particular tool in your field set. Then make a note and acquire that tool for your field set at the next opportunity. This way, your field set will grow slowly over time and won't be filled with unnecessary pieces.[/QUOTE]

Best advice I have read in a while.

maybe i am weird but they are one and the same. I take all my tools on the trail because i use them all in the garage. Do you guys have seperate tools for in the truck and at home ? Seems expensive.

We have four different sets I believe. We have the shop set in the boxes, Ho's field set, my field set, and my motorcycle field set.

The field sets aren't too crazy because they don't contain the same amount and variety as the shop set.
