Spare parts for wheeling?

So I went out wheeling with a couple of FJ guys (I road in one of their rigs) and they have to be the most prepared sons-of-*****es ever. They brought so many tools and spare parts. One dude had like a spare part for just about every suspension component on his truck.

It just made me wonder what spare parts, if any, do ya'll bring when you go wheelin?

that sums it up right there.

remember you have a jeep, not a toyota. they have to be prepared because they dont have jeeps.

and no spare parts for me either.

the spare parts you bring should really depend on the type of wheeling you do and the lift/tire setups you have

You'd bring spare parts too if you had an IFS. Plus I think it's so hard for them to lift that they just spend the money on doodads instead


No spares for me. I'll just call AAA. Forest Service roads are considered public roads right?

I love my Jeep, but I will say that just because it is a Jeep doesn't mean it won't break out there. I know you're probably just joking around, but I figured I'd throw that out there.

"It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it."

I carry a pretty decent collection of spare parts, which have helped other club members get home on more than one occasion.

Off the top of my head I carry:
- UCA (used by a member in April)
- LCA (used by myself a couple times)
- Tie rod (used by a member in April)
- Drag Link
- Tie Rod Ends
- Spare D35 Axle Shafts
- Spare U-joint (Will soon carry inners and outers)
- Box of misc. bolts, nuts, washers
- 3/8" and 1/2" Ratchet with Sockets
- Wrenches
- High Lift
- Bottle Jack
- Water/Coolant
- Quart of Oil
- Some break fluid
- Vise Grips
- Ball Peen Hammer
- Cotter Pins
- 36 MM Socket
- Tire repair kit
- Pickle fork
- Zip ties
- PB Blaster

It sounds like alot, and it kind of is. But if you go to Target/Walmart and get a nice plastic tub (I have one about 6" tall by 3.5' long by 2' wide) it'll fit everything. I keep all my tools in a toolbag that I got at Home Depot for $9.99 and it fits all my tools, my recov strap, first aid kit.

When I go wheeling I strap the toolbag down where the spare used to be, and the plastic tub goes on the opposite side. It's nice and flat so I still have plenty of space for a cooler or duffle bag, or both.

If you just added a tow bar to that list you could just drag a whole parts Jeep with you LOL But on a serious note you definetly seem well prepared for just about anything.
