Father’s day is just around the corner, and we bet that just like us, you’re struggling to find that perfect gift for dad. If your dad passed on his love of cars and tinkering to you then show your appreciation with these budget-friendly suggestions:
OBDII Scan Tool
Newer cars are more complex than ever. Help Dad figure out what that check engine light really means with a slick code reader/scanner. Just plug this into the OBD port of any 1996 and later car to find out what’s really going on. Some tools allow for service resets, data logging and more.
2. Peak PBF11PM Wrench – Flare Nut
Instead of borrowing dad’s tools, why not give him some that he can really use? With their ratcheting ends, these wrenches get into tight places that a socket set can’t reach. Get him a set of metric and SAE while you are at it!
3. Rampage Wireless Back-Up Camera
You finally convinced dad to ditch the flip phone and join the smart phone club. Now he can hook up a trailer solo while watching his favorite mobile device with this compact wireless camera. Its magnetic feet stick anywhere and send still pictures and videos directly to your screen via a free app.
4. Trail Can Tool Box
Here’s a cool tool box dad will love. Looks like a standard Jerry can and can accommodate the basic tools needed for a road trip. Dads love functional gifts!
5. Performance Tire Pressure Gauge
The correct tire pressure saves gas and makes your tires and suspension last longer. Dad always said that you should check your tire pressures at least once a month, so make it easy for him with this digital tire pressure gauge. It’s as accurate as the deluxe models at a fraction of the price.
