Spare Sensor Recommendations

What spare sensors does everyone recommend carrying on the trail? My rig is a 94 with the 4.0 and AX15. I currently have a spare crank sensor, throttle position sensor, MAP sensor, and an O2 sensor.

Reason I ask is that the computer in my TJ crapped out so I have to use my YJ instead when participating in the Jeepers Jamboree this week on the Rubicon Trail. YJ runs great but I want to make sure that I have replacements for common sensor failures.

Any additional sensors I should purchase?

Spare Sensor Recommendations

Not sure really. Maybe a MAP sensor? It wonít run right without it. Oil pressure sensor? If it breaks off or fails internally it will spew oil everywhere. Crankshaft position sensor? Wonít run without it.

Those are the only three that could put you out of commission that I can think of. Iím sure there are others.

Which brand of spare sensors did you buy? Seeing that the engine relies on a sensor for a go/no-go situation, I see value in carrying a spare extra sensor with. And the sensors are so small it's not that big of a deal.

If you look at rock auto, you can see sensors that range from 10 bucks to 50 bucks. But then you also hear about sensors being dead out of the box.

The other extra part I would think about adding to your collection is an ignition coil. Mine died last week and I quickly learned that without it, your jeep is dead. They are also small and can range in price from $12 to $50.

I always refrain from purchasing cheap sensors. Since Mopar sensors aren’t available I purchase the most expensive ones available from Rock Auto. Either Standard Motor Products or NTK.

Thanks for the coil suggestion. I’ll pick one up today.

Expensive doesnt always mean better. When I cant find mopar I have been using OEM thats the company name. I almost ran with them using that trickery but they had alot of good amazon reviews. So far I am happy with them. They arent the cheapest but they arent expensive either.
