This one. Nothing spectacular, but would really be better than what I have now.

I have the rechargeable streamlight too love that thing. I thought bout getting the one you have right now Luke but I like the feel of the Terralux 80 a lot better.
How much did you pick it up for? Snap On truck here charges $50 for that like LOL. I ended up getting this last week and so far it's good but
I want a light with the pocket clip.

So I am picking up about $5000 worth of tools in the next month so excited!!

i was sad when i ordered my black matco 6s and it showed up all screwy!  the whole fit and finish of the box, side locker, and hutch were off!  it was going to cost me like 12-14k.  it took them like 3 months to build it and it looked like shit... i was sad because that was my dream box. i had them pack it up and take it with them. they tried to give me a huge discount on it but i figured id come to work everyday and see how tweaked it was and not be happy.  so i just got a big snap on box and couldnt be happier.  much better build quality. imho. so i dont know if someone was drunk when they were building my box and i just got a shitty one or if they are all like that..

5k?! Damn, hah. I was thinking about spending $500 here shortly.

I got my Streamligt from the Cornwell truck. It was like $40.

Are you picky with brand names? Cause brand name quality & price. If you want something cheap no power & obviously cheap.

Ingersoll Rand makes some good Impacts.

Just depends on how much you wanna pay, lots of options. Snap-on seems to have the most expensive guns.

If you get one off a truck, they let you do payments, so kinda doesn't matter how much ya pay.

I'm using a Cornwell Impact. It's a Ingersoll Titanium. Just with the Cornwell name. I love it, lots of power. It retails for $380, but I got it for $300 on promo. Also the noise level comes into play aswell. If you don't like super loud ones.... They can get annoying.

Right now I'm just the Team Lead for the Lube Techs at  a GM/Buick dealership.

Going to be an apprentice in the next week or so, though. Excited, but nervous at the same time. Lol.

I found a few good deals on some BNIB Matco stuff on eBay. I'm gonna ask the Matco dealer tomorrow if he'll match the prices Lol. It's unlikely, because that's how he makes his money, but its worth a try.

I like the Matco service carts a lot. I would rather have a Matco box over Snap On
