I've always wondered if something like this existed, turns out they do: https://www.amazon.com/Neiko-Profile-Screwdriver-5-Piece-Construction/dp/B07GNPRRVZ

 

I have a set of the two-sided ones linked above, but I bet these would be a lot thinner.

I've got a set of these in my Aviation toolbox.  Good stuff.

I think we've all been there with that one screw or bolt that is a tiny fraction of an inch of clearance from being easy and thus becomes a huge nightmare.  :laugh:  comes with the territory of working on trucks.  :comanche:

I love vice grips, especially the needle nose ones. They are also great at pinching off rubber fuel line so it won't leak. I'm sure it would work with brake lines too.

I wouldn’t recommend pinching rubber brake lines EVER with ANY kind of clamping too.  In doing so, you are weakening/cracking the rubber, and increasing a chance for a rupture.

Yeah, I only do that when I'm swapping out the line and I want to keep it from leaking out while I'm dealing with old flare nuts.

This is the only case that I do it.

Just goes to show what we are capable of if we all just work together.   Lol


There was a nice sign we hung outside our conference room when I worked telecom. Still remains one of my favorite expressions:

”None of us is as dumb as all of us”

Just keep in mind, your going to find a lot more headache than an inaccesible screw with an axle swap. This is when the Jeep unleashes it’s wrath :holdwrench:
