You bring a clutch on every run? Geeze...


I pretty much disassembled a stock front axle and threw it in a box with the exception of the 3rd member and the housing. And this is generally what I take with me in addition to some fluids. It's also good to have duct tape, electrical tape, some electrical splices, RTV sealant and bailing wire. And I take nearly every hand tool I own... So far so good on getting crap done.

Duck tape and bailing wire as QuickDraw said - FTW!

And all of this kind of depends on what trails you run I suppose...

I think a ready welder (or the like) and some OBA and I could fix about anything. I also need to add some t-case internals, but need to research some more to figure out what commonly breaks (output shaft, etc).


to steel Warn's slogan: Go prepared. If you're going to wheel, expect to break shit, be ready to fix it.

Since I don't trailer and I like to run the big stuff, I HAVE to drive home and try to make sure I have everything I need to at least limp home.

never weighed my truck before n after to see the weight difference but I know its gotta be a couple hundred pounds. just the spare parts and tools alone are a lot of weight. then fluids arent weightless either.

Don't have pics at the moment but I've got a Rumbermaid container that stores most of my parts and tools that I strap into the center behind the rear seat. My spare CV, tire iron (one of the big X-style ones), and recovery strap and shackles just hang out loose behind the front seats. Of course at this point most of my "parts" are just fluids, duct tape, bailing wire and grease. Oh, and I have a bottle jack that stays behind the passenger side panel in the back (that plastic door), and I lashed my shovel on the roll bar. I haven't accumulates extra steering, suspension and drive train parts most of the others have mentioned.

I've been considering constructing some custom boxes that will bolt to the floor in the back to hold tools and are big enough for things like CV's, but haven't figured out exactly how to build them so I still have room for camping gear and whether to build them out of wood or metal.
