What spare parts to keep on hand.

I am running a 2005 Wrangler Rocky Mt. and am thinking of putting in some spare parts just to keep on hand. What spare parts do you other street jeepers keep on hand? I am thinking of sensors, plugs, bulbs etc. Thanks

Hoses, belts the right tools and a personal bug out bag, if you have to walk.

By the way, what do you consider "old" ? (your tag)

I'm 65 - how about you? Every one tells me I look 45. I am still in a Jeep and loving every minute.

I use the European method of age counting, so next week I'll be in my 60th year.
I believe we live in interesting times.

Rear Main Seal from my next order at Rock Auto. It's only $16 bucks there, the local Advanced Auto wanted $33 (with tax) for exactly the same thing

I can't see much need for keeping too much on hand, but specific brand items or items purchased on discount would get the nod. U-joints!

Serpintine belt (absolute must-have!)
A bottle of every fluid: Power steering, Brake, engine oil, transmission, radiator.
Zip ties.
Tail light bulbs, headlight bulbs.
Toilet Paper (you never know when the need may arise).
Hacksaw (ever crushed an exhaust tailpipe closed?)
Large trash bags (great to lay down on while working under the Jeep or just to hold dirty broken parts).
And tools to work on most anything.
