5000 Mile Expedition, Spares to take?

Hey there, I am participating in a 5000+ mile Expedition through Mexico and Belize and was curious what some others out there thought we should be bringing for spares [aside from another Rover] so any input would be greatly appreicated. I know this is a 90 forum but most stuff crosses over. Our expedition vehicle is a 87 RRC in pretty good mechanical shape.

Thanks!

I remeber reading in the roversnorths news that gets sent out that a couple had embarked on something similar to your adventure in a RRC. it was a pretty detailed story that lasted a few issues, this has been about 4 months ago the last I remember reading anything about it. they talked about some of the problems they had with thier truck which were pretty non threatining. it may be worth a try to find those articles for some insight FWIW

Jason,

Is this an organized trip? Is there a URL maintained by the trip organizers?
