These shift lever removal tools are considered unnecessary by some, but they are nice to have and can prevent galling the transmission mount with screwdrivers and other makeshift solutions. The one on the to is for a Gen1 pickup and the lower is Land Cruiser.
Land Cruiser Tool - the Jim Beach Special
A driver handle with a flex joint and a 10mm socket was what Jim Beach called the "special Land Cruiser tool". In many situations (like dealing with hardware on a hardtop) these drivers work much better/faster than ratchets, etc. They worked great on the engine side lifter cover, etc. too.
