The Lil Trucker Multi-Tool could help you fix a war rig

Lil Trucker

When you’re in a risky situation, you need to make sure you’re prepared for anything. While resourcefulness can help, it will only get you so far. It’s rather important to have tools that won’t snap when you need them the most, and aren’t just a one-trick pony. Since we’ve all been excited about post-apocalyptic scenarios thanks to zombies and Mad Max, it wouldn’t hurt if a practical tool also had weapon capabilities.

This Li’l Trucker was developed for rescue workers, but could be a life-saver on the road or in the wilds. This is made of 1055 carbon steel, and only weighs 1.3 pounds, making it worth the space in your backpack. The handle is made of a composite reinforced nylon, and there’s a tungsten carbide glass breaker that has been machine sharpened. It can function as a hex wrench, wedge, pry, hook, hammer, nail puller, saw, gas valve wrench, spanner, hatchet, can opener, strap cutter, and more.

Whether you need to make some adjustments to your vehicle or bash some zombie brains, the Li’l Trucker will be there for you. There is a survival companion that will tack more onto the $69 price, but will give you a whistle, tinder, flint, and a sharpener. While there are a lot of multi- and EDC tools out there, you’ll need to make sure you pick the right one, as not all are built to face everything life can throw at you.
