    I got this nifty little Oxy-Acet torch set up from Sears some time back...The tanks are around the size of MAPP or Propane tanks (I think a little bigger). But It come in its own little rack, with a hose and some tips. So I use that along with a BFH, Pry-bars, and the usual asst. of sockets, combo's and screwdrivers. Since youre going to a you-pull-it yard....I'd call in the morning to see if you can bring a toy wagon w/ ya...

    A 1/2-inch drive, 15/16's deep well socket for unbolting the u-bolts from the axles. (Or the previously mentioned torch will make that job go much quicker, especially on salt-rusted trucks). /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
