    Just out of curiosity, what do you need a torque wrench that starts at 10 ft. lbs. for? Would it not just be as easy to use an inch lb. one?

    I want a set of those angled wrenches, but $280 still hurts. Maybe I need to stop buying Jeep parts long enough to get some more tools 🤪

    Well, you would only need an inch lb torque wrench that went to 120 and you can definitely get that but for beadlocks, it can be real tiring being that it's so small. A ft lb torque wrench will get you more leverage and make the install easier. So, what you're wanting is what you're looking for

    I really just need a reason to buy more tools and I found it. I have two of their torque wrenches. These are my ďgoodĒ ones.

    So here's a bit of good news! I just talked to Tekton and was told that a lot of their stuff is in fact, MADE IN THE USA!!

    All of their screwdrivers, nut drivers, punches and chisels are made in the USA. More recently, they introduced their angle head wrench line up and they too are MADE IN THE USA. While not all, many of their pliers and pry bars are MADE IN THE USA and the ones that aren't are always clearly marked on their website as to where they come from.

    I should also note that I've been told that Tekton has and will "continue working hard to find domestic partners that will be able to provide the highest quality tools".
