Spare parts/tools for the trail

What spare parts and tools do all you guys carry when out on the trail? I know I've been going out not fully prepared and I want to make sure I'm fully equipped for any breakage that may occur.

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

Front axles and u-joints are number one. But you can't replace them unless you have the right tools for the job so be sure to have those. A fullsize spare tire is also critical. I carry a full tool box with sockets wrenches and my basic air tools to get the job done faster and easier. Don't forget the High-Lift.

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

"Military e-tool"??
i carry hi-lift, shackles, MAGLIGHT indistructable, air pump, full size spare, spare change (for carwash, to rinse mud off the moving parts) recovery straps (more than one incase it breaks, if worried about a strap breaking, roll the back window down, and keep ur head below the top of the seat to save ur back window and ur head) rachets and a cheater pole-makes a world of diffrence

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

hey i have a question related to this... does anybody use one of those "Food Saver" vacuum devices to seal up their spare parts or tools? my dad has one he uses for food and it seems to work well, and I thought it might keep moisture/humidity off parts and also keep the funk out of the Bronco when the top is on [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

i carry lots of stuff most of the time, but stuff i never leave home without: hi-lift, cell phone, toolbox [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

sound like a great idea but i would think that condensation would still be able to get inside of bags.
unless you put in one of those baggies that come with most eletronic devices (forgot what they are called) in the baggie that would keep condensation out of bags and tool or whatever are in them will stay clean and rust free. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

its a folding shovel has a small handle that fold in 1/2 can be used as a shovel,pick,axe it comes in handy when you need to dig yourself out and it takes up about as much room as a paperplate

Re: Spare parts/tools for the trail

Lots of good suggestions here. Just remember to stow everything properly and tie it all down. I'd hate to roll and have a 150 lb toolbox hit me in the head. B.O.B.
