Spares kit for 4k trip

What spares (if any?) would you guys recommend for a 110 w/200tdi for a 4k trip, most of which will be in Northern Canada/AK. I think I have tools figured out, so just asking about parts.

Interested in your thoughts. Did some searching but couldn't find a thread on this though I can't imagine it hasn't been discussed. Thanks.

A couple things I have learned are the following.

Grese gun
Brake/clutch fluid
Good jack
air compressor
jumper cables
jerry can with extra gas/diesel
Spare bulbs
fuel filter
engine and gear oil
Patches are for Pirates and pants, not a bulkhead and chassis!

Seriously though, if you have the room, I would pack 2 small jack stands and a piece of 3/4" plywood 14"x14" to set the stands on. Servicing in the field can be sketchy at best if you're solely relying on a hi lift jack.

I would also carry pig mat or any other absorbent pad for cleaning up spills
A few empty containers for used oil if you would need to drain for any reason.

A way to add fluids. You can't hold a quart of ATF up to an r380 and pour it in. Likewise with the lt230. Make some sort of screw on adapter to a long piece of hose so you can properly fill needed components.
What tree?

I know you said you have tools covered but get a small floor jack. Hi Lift jacks are great for some stuff but for just working things that floor jack has been well worth the money and it is small enough to fit in the pelican box in the back. Make sure it is one with an SUV extension.
