– A 3/8″ drive speed handle is a definite necessity. [This bad boy](http://store.snapon.com/Speeders-chrome-Speeder-Comfort-Knob-16-5-8–P631527.aspx) is pretty fucing nice, as you can put some ass behind it without hurting your hand. Get a decent bit holder for it, as well.
– Personally, I don’t bother with any 6-point wrenches or sockets. 12-point all the way.
– A decent-length 1/2″ drive breaker bar can be useful.
– Stubby wrenches can also be handy.
