Hey I could use some suggestions here. I have been taking my XJ to Moab every year for the last several years and when I see a broken down jeep on the trails it always scares me. I'd like to be prepared this time. I would love to get any suggestions on any spare parts to bring. That is, common parts that have a history of going bad on XJ's, or other parts that it would just be a good idea to bring along. I know a belt is a obvious choice but what else?
U- Joints, Ball joints, Front Axle Shafts, Pinion Yokes, Belts, Hub's , Coolant/Water .............. Take 2 gallons per person per day you'll be surprised how much you will drink. Also get the Moab Trails book by Charles A Wells. It has pictures, descriptions , GPS Cords of all trails . All of us Utah guys have it and use it . I suggest running Fins N Things first to get you used to going up and down, then do Hells Revenge that will be a full 8-10hr day of wheeling both trails are excellent and right next to each other . Sometimes you can follow a Jeep tour on Hells revenge . Moab Diner has great food and portion sizes . Eddie Mcstiffs treat you like **** if you have a kid **** that place, Moab Brewery has great beverages their food and wait staff is hit and miss
if your blessed with a SYE and are running a front shaft in the rear take 1 or 2 spares, spare front axle shafts and a 36MM socket to get the hub nut off and a 13MM 12 point socket to remove the unit bearings. 6L of oil, 3L of gear oil, 6L of ATF, 4-8L of clean water for the rad, new oil filter and a spare belt and full size spare tire. I bring hose clamps, few feet of 3/8 rubber hose, zip ties, screws and fasteners, small tubes of silicone and loctite. Booster cables, hand held scanner and all kinds of hand tools. i love moab, cant wait to go back.
