Tools and Spares

I am trying to compile a list of spares and tools that everyone carries so I can get an idea on what I need to get. I know each vehicle requires different spares. So we can go off of mine. Its a 2014 JKU with a manual transmission.

Thanks

Anymore specifics? Lift, tire size, gearing, stock engine?

2.5" Lift, 35" tires, Stock Gearing for a manual transmission, which I think is 3.21, engine is stock minus intake, exhaust and programmer.

Here's the basics I have in all my rigs, first aid/trauma bag, at least two 3 D cell WORKING flashlights with spare batteries, jumper cables, snatch strap, 20' grade 70 tow chain, shovel, a 60" high lift and a 20 ton hydraulic jack, a 4 way lug wrench with the side I need painted hot pink for day time and a bead welded on it to make it easier to find in the dark, full size spare, a half dozen lug nuts, an 80cuft nitrogen or CO2 tank (which ever is full) with a 25' hose, air chuck and impact wrench, at least a flat of water, MRE's or equivalent, 2 quarts each oil, PS fluid, transmission fluid, 90wt, fuel filter and belts.

I also have a CB and a Ham radio for comms, spare fuses and relays, a socket for hubs, basic tools, a long breaker bar, pry bar and I'm working on a welder.

I'm sure there's more but that's it off the top of my head.

64trvlr has a damn good list.

Medical kit and fire extinguisher

I'll also add that it depends on the mission. You may not always want to load your rig down with 100 pounds of gear.

If you're running hard areas, add
spare front axle shaft, at a minimum a U-joint
spare driveshaft joints (at least one of each size if front and rear are different)
whatever size plugs you'd need to plug off a brake line should one break
various bolts to replace anything mission critical (suspension bolts)
Tie wire and duck tape

I also carry a tire plug kit and small compressor. Have slashed a few sidewalls on rocks.

Next is tire patch kit and compressed air to run tools.

When it comes to spares, I try to always carry fuses and some electrical tape. Hoses and belts are next, and I'll ususually have some spare hose clamps and any time I replace a coolant hose, I'll throw the old ones in the vehichle in case they ever come in handy. I'll also carry some coolant hose repair tape, which ain't all that great, but it can work in a pinch. I'm always telling myself I'll carry a spare serpentine belt, but that seems like one I never get around to. I also like to have spare fluids for almost everything - brakes, power steering, coolant, engine oil, transmission. I guess I never carry diff fluid, but engine oil might work better than nothing. In terms of tools, I like to always have a flashlight, a lighter, a shovel, a saw (chainsaw or hand or both), jumper cables, chains and or tow straps, some ratchet straps, a full set of tools, a high lift and or bottle jack, a cheapy multitester, and a battery impact wrench. I also like to have some quick steel epoxy putty and gasket maker on hand.

Yup... dam near perfection right there.

I pretty much mimic that list, except for the air tools...
