Headed across country to Moab in April. What spare parts would you keep in your rig? Searched the forum, but only found 100 series list.

and while I wouldn’t lean heavily on on ih8mud as a rescue board, I have no doubt that a willing crew would come to your aid and help you do a parking lot repair if you had to limp out of the backcountry and make a repair at the parts store. UT isn’t the middle of oz, it’s not the Sahara neither, but there are corners of it that will make it a long tricky walk out of your rig breaks down. So @LandLocked93’s advice for plan B gear is important: plenty of water, some food, cold weather clothing. Maybe also another rig to explore with?For moab trips, I bring fluids, grease, and a set of wheel bearings. You’ll be in Utah so cruiser outfitters will be able to ship stuff over to you fairly quickly too

Take note OP! Get that number on speed dial. You may want to brake down on purpose just to experience the love that is @cruiseroutfit!We ship stuff to Moab very regularly, same day delivery with couriers (or I drive down) or next day with ground UPS
Well that's amazing news lol I purchase regularly lol and recently saw you were just north. My first check was how long it would take to drive to you and backWe ship stuff to Moab very regularly, same day delivery with couriers (or I drive down) or next day with ground UPS
Oh 85% of my parts have come from @cruiseroutfit lol I'm well versed in the amazingness, but breaking down would be worth the in person handshake for all the help lolTake note OP!

Thank you! Actually just replaced the starter yesterday!You can limp back to civilization with most issues so just carry some basic spares. If your starter is old or questionable that would be worth swapping out before the trip.
The only times my cruiser died were wiring, starter or electrical related so I bring extra fuses, a multimeter, and a pdf copy of the fsm and wiring diagrams.
These are awesome!!!! Thank you very much!!!!I always carry these basics on any trip as a bare minimum to rig up temporary fixes. Trail fixes just need to get you to somewhere you can fix it properly. A patch job if you will.
A few feet of heater hose in both main sizes 1/2" and 5/8"
Self-fusing tape for patching other hoses and maybe a couple splicing connectors/extra clamps so you can cut out bad sections
A few feet of fuel line in 1/4", 3/16" and 5/16" and extra clamps
Spare fuses, relays, and some lengths of wire with some crimp connectors and the associated tools
Bailing wire or other heavy duty wire for rigging things together
spare nuts and bolts in oe sizes
spare fluids and grease
These will be enough to patch up most issues at least long enough to get off the trail and where more parts are available to do it right. I don't carry axles or anything like that usually, because worst case on these rigs as long as the spindle isn't broken, you can pull the shafts, lock the center diff, and limp out in 2wd with help from a tow strap. Basically the way I see it is I need to keep electricity and fluids flowing to prevent catastrophic damage. Much more than that can wait until I get into town, or its so broken it's probably not going to be trail fixable anyway
If I was going into super remote wilderness I may pack more, but I'm usually wheeling with other rigs and often other 80s, so worst case we could use another truck to get to camp, pull parts of someone else's rig to go back and get the stranded one up and going again.
