Hello all

Just a question for some info I'm gathering.


What stuff (tools, parts, gear, ect, ect) do you take out with you on your wheeling outings and I assume you take more on overnite camping trips but what extras do you take.

Also please be specific to your brand of 4x4, for other newbie's to get some info as well.
thanks

Jason
Stay safe and have fun

I don't have many tools yet so I just take everything. I have a spare set of wheel bearing for front wheels, ratchet set, screw driver..( basic tools) full size good spare tire. If you think there is a chance of breaking something, make sure you have the tools and parts with you to fix it.

Duct tape is a definite must to take on any outing.

Fluids for all (diffs, t-case, tranny, engine, etc).
Grease
Duct tape, electrical tape, zap straps
Spark plugs and wires, cap, rotor, hoses, oil filter, air filter etc. All these things you replace now and again, so hold onto the old ones (except the oil filter as they are cheap enough anyways).
Gasket material or gasket goo.
Ujoints
Rope
Assortment of other fun things...
I also carry pushrods and lifters but that is another story...
Tools goes without saying.

You wouldn't believe how useful those $15 12v air compressors are at canadian tire (when you're in a pinch). Also a little bailing wire and some all-round straping are always useful.

Tire plugs to fix those annoying holes that always appear in the tires.

Autotel, cell phone, sat. phone, or repeater capable radio.....what ever it takes to get some of your buddies to help you out. BCAA is likely the best tool you could spend your money on. There is alway someone kind enough to give you a yank to a trailhead. This time you, next time me. What comes around goes around, golden rule, etc....

something else thats handy is extra hose clamps, they come in handy if you brake a shock mount. something else that wasn't mentioned was some silicone spray, its good for dispersing water from your cap and rotor

Another "tool" that would be a good idea to have on the trail is a bar of ivory soap. In the rare case of puncturing your gas tank, you can cut ivory soap to plug the hole. Gas will eat just about anything that you would think of to plug it except soap. Then just duct tape the it in there and you will be able to limp home.

something else that could be very helpful would be a first-aid kit
