Good luck to you. You won't regret it. And don't limit yourself to just trucks work on anything you can get your hands on at school. I started in diesel, ended up in stand by generators. But one thing is for sure my toolbox collection has grown considerably since school.
I second both of those suggestions especially the pry bars, some guys might tend to choke up at the Snap-On price for that set but they ARE worth every penny when the going gets tough! I know you said you are spent out now but in the future when you need to increase your set things like those pry bars are a good example of an item that it pays to spend the extra money on to get the best. Also that awl and hook set is unbelievably handy and should be in everyone's box.
