Honest question, why?

The second one has 8 more pieces, which looks mostly like the combination wrenches vs. the first one with more extension options. Both are 4.5+ reviewed.

I'm not hung up on the strength between the two as this is a backup kit to put in the truck.

Guessing it has something to do with the coating of the sockets? Honestly I was confused as well at a quick glance. I’d like to know too

second one a LARGE chunk of the "pieces" are redundant stupid little bits, some of which you'll get 3-5 of for the screwdriver-wanna be thing.

Oh fuck good catch on that!

i ordered the 200 first, a few years ago, then went to order the 192 thinking it was the same as the other, and when it showed up i was like wtf is this thing, and yeah, it has waaaaay more sockets.

Got it. I think the one thing that caught my eye with the 200 piecer, was the combo wrenches.

nah it pisses you off more than anything cuz you get 4 metric and 5 standard.

chances are you won't have the one you need with you.

id rather have no wrenches and not get my hope up that i have the right one and go to an adjustable :rofl:

It looks like you got the first kit PLUS the wrenches and less one of hex key sets.
