Had a 6-month contract in Colorado Springs, and I bought an 86 Chrysler Conquest to tool around in for the duration. Didn't bring any tools back from Texas, so I bought what I needed at Harbor Freight store there.
I have some socket wrench sets and 4 jackstands from Harbor Freight. I am pretty happy with the quality, and the prices were reasonable.
