I dont have a cool skid system for all my tools.
What I did was put everything in smaller tool boxes. I have a bag soft sided bag with grinders, 2 wiring boxes plus one cardboard box with extra lenghts and rolls of wire, drills, hole saws and drill bits have their own box but its about to get divided into a drill box and a bit box, propane torches, tanks and solder have their own box, plumbing parts box takes up to big tool boxes, nail guns need their box, chain saws have their own little box with extra chain and support parts, sockets, wrenches and hand tools are about to get divided into 2 boxes, air tools are in 2 tool boxes, welder parts box with wire and tips and a few more. Full battle rattle is about 600 to 700lb, not counting the spare tires, pressure washer, chemicals, gas cylinders go on the trailer.
Lucky for me I almost never need to move most or all of it.

1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
