Servicing a Fox fork with alternative tools

Do you use other than official tools for servicing your Fox fork? I mean drive and extractor tool for seals, and lower leg removal. My Fox is 2017, Fox 32 Float SC Performance.

It depends on the type of riding. In my case: sport and adventure outside in the mountains and the desert, an hydration backpack is quite useful, not only for carrying water. Dominus tecum.
