I need to get a 3/8 socket set to carry in my truck for work. I have plenty of 3/8 sockets, ratchets,extensions ,and other stuff in my box at home. I need this for work, and something I can carry in my truck with me. What I am looking for is a 3/8 set, deep and shallow sockets, standard and metric in a blow molded case. All my sockets in my garage box are on rails and that gets to be a pain when working on something in the field. Recommendations ?

Don't know if you have one nearby, but Menard's has a set that looks like it would serve your needs in their weekly ad that came out today. Crescent brand, $59.99 with a $10 mail in rebate.

Personally, I've had pretty good luck with the Crescent brand wrenches and sockets for farm use. Menard's will warranty them, too.

The set of tools that JD Seller listed below are good. I have a set in every car and truck and one behind the seat of the combine. They are real handy.And if you break a piece you get it replaced. If you loose a socket You won't cry over the cost. Ben very happy with mine since I can leave my snap on tools in the shop

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see.

I have basically the same set. Mine has a pair of wire cutters instead of the Crescent wrench.

I got just what you need in Craftsman from Menard's a year ago. In a nice container. I bought 1 for each grandson too. We have used the heck out of them.

Whatever you decide to get, take the time to check that all the sizes are there.

For whatever reason (to save a dollar I suppose), the plastic case tool sets are bad about skipping sizes, especially with the end wrenches.

Here is a 170 piece Crescent tool set that I have in several of my trucks. It has 1/4,3/8 and 1/2 sockets in SAE and metric. A few wrenches and common tools. They all snap into the case so they do not bounce around. I bought this set at Menard's for around $100. The tools do have a life time warranty. I had a spring break in the 3/8 ratchet and they replaced it.

A nice feature is the deep well sockets are six point and the 1/4 drive ones are six point too.

Here is the actual sets I have The cases are a little better. The Red plastic latches are actually hinged. The sets have been a good buy for a carry along set. Watch the numbers closely as they have a different setup and cheaper latches. The first one I pictures is a gray case and the cheaper latches. They are currently on sale at Amazon for $109.98.

The set number is: Crescent CTK170MP

Set looks nice. I carry wrenches, pliers and stuff in two different boxes I have, but that would be a nice set to add ! Do you need adapters to use some of the sockets ? I am guessing so. Like if you wanted to use a 3/4 socket on the 3/8 ratchet ? Just wondering ! Definitely worth looking into.

I would recommend GP sockets. Very good quality and reasonable price with a lifetime warranty and variety of sets to fit your needs. I get mine off the Mac tool truck there's many places that sell them but warranty is easier with the tool truck. I've only broke one 3/8 swivel and a 3/8 drive 6 in long allen in the last 4 years of having nothing but GP sockets in my tool box and I'm a mechanic by trade.

Here's a HF one for under $40 that looks like it matches. Have had good luck with most of HF's Pittsburgh stuff for what I paid, though the ratchet is usually the first to go in my experience. Can probably fit a decent one in the same spot in the case if necessary.

No problem--for another $13 you can pick up a set of deep-well 3/8" metric impact sockets. Don't look to be in a case, but if you've only got to handle one rail (and I agree--rails in a truck kit can be a pain) it might not be that bad. Only a couple bucks to pick up a cheapie plastic "organizer" case for them if needed--the Plano or similar ones meant for fishing tackle are VERY handy for such things--I've got a bunch of them I've filled with stuff like electrical butt connectors and common fastener assortments ready so I can just grab the case and go.

HF sets, cheap, work good and when someone else thinks they own them, you aren't out big dollars.

There are a lot of brand name sets just like that on Amazon. Below is just one example. Lots to choose from.
