The ultimate travel spares list

I'm putting together a spares shopping list for my trip to Baja next year so I thought I'd create a place where we can discuss spares for trips of various destinations and duration. Obviously a spares list is shorter on a short weekend trip and likely much longer on a long international trip.

First question (and I have searched) is regards to wheel bearings. Timken and SKF have been recommended. What size and part# (sources if available) do I need for my NAS D90?

Next, whats your favorite grease?

I was planning on getting a CV joint kit. Is my NAS D90 a 24 spline?

The head gasket sets I have been looking at, strangely do not include the head gasket. Do I buy that separately? Genuine the best way to go? OEM ok?

a posted list should specify diesel vs gas. an ultimate list will differ between them.

Good point. Vehicle specifics should be taken into account as well as duration. Domestic versus international as well. I have a couple of 'ultimate' 300tdi spares lists and while they can be helpful for reference I find it a little less useful to have a 'bring everything' list. Sure I can bring everything but I don't have room. What should I bring for two weeks in Baja and what should I not bring? I have very limited room in my D90 so I have to be very selective about what I bring.

- BR37 for the wheel bearings, should be available literally at any Napa or auto parts store (pack a couple extras just to be safe, but I'd imagine you can find these anywhere even over the border). The BR37 is I believe the SKF number, but should cross-ref to Timken directly as the same or under "SET37" (which is the bearing/race LM603049/LM603011).

- the Valvoline Multipurpose "bucket-o-grease" (the red stuff) gets the job done just fine, or the Mobil 1 synthetic if you're got to spend more coin (I've had that side by side with the Valvoline and can't tell the difference).

- Yes 24 spline, but pony up and call Erik @ Lucky8 and get the Tibus HD set....they're pricey, but breaking CVs can be a pain in the arse so it's one of those worthwhile upgrades in my opinion.

There was a good discussion of this on the EE board:

Northwest by Ex-MOD - Page 2 - Expedition Exchange Bulletin Boards

It boils down to priorities and weight constraints. If you start packing too much crap, you sacrifice performance, safety, ride comfort, space, etc. The more trips I take, the less I bring. It's all about the essentials. Even in Baja, you're still no more than a day or two from a DHL delivery. The chances that you're going to replace a head gasket on a Baja trip are virtually nil. Same goes for CVs. If you're already running a HD driveline, don't even bother bringing spares.

Jack's list is spot on. I focus on steering and rolling and bring a few items that I've seen break time and again on trips: U-joints, shock absorbers, bushings, etc.

You can travel much lighter if you simply replace a lot of likely-to-fail items before you go. Don't wait for your U-joints to go out if they have many miles on them. Replace them at home.

I don't think you'll be replacing a wheel bearing on the side of the road if you maintain yours. A U joint would be a good spare as well as an extra brake bleeder nipple. The nipples can be installed on most junctions in the brake system to block off a damaged section.

Wheel bearings are cheap and reasonably light so keeping two in the truck seems sensible.

-Extra T-stat (replace the fan clutch if its never been replaced, might as well clean out the radiator while you are at it, replace the hoses while you are in there, and keep the old hoses as spares. Oh and if you do the radiator, pull the heater core as well. Easy to do with the system empty and you'll enjoy it in the winter).
-Extra hose clamps. Much win there.
-Wheel bearing kit, Rovahfarm has pre-packaged kits. That should be fine.
-Extra fan belts/serpentine
-Extra air filter (or more, since it is the desert...)
-Extra oil filter
-Fuel pump and fuel filter. When that SOB goes, it sucks
-Spare fuses and that cool little fuse removal tool
-Wire brushes of all sizes, but most importantly, the size that looks like a tooth brush.
-Also an old tooth brush. Much win for cleaning crap out in the field
-Scotch brite. Like the tooth brush, you didn't know you needed this until you needed this. For ~$1.50 for a 3 pack, it won't break the bank. Or steal one from your kitchen. Whichevs.

-Extra brake fluid and 80w-90. Of course extra motor oil (and I guess extra trans fluid if you are running a slush box).

-An extra set of brake lines wouldn't hurt. Not too expensive and doesn't take up much, if any space.

Also if you are running a slush box, get a spare one of those clips that goes in the top of the shifter. Seems like the only time those things die is when you are on the trail.

-Just rebuild the driveshafts before you go. Cheaper and easier than carrying extra cardon joints and screwing around with them at 10pm at night with a hammer and some sockets.

Pull the axle shafts and inspect them. As with the driveshafts, easier to dick around with them at home than trying to limp home on 2 and a half wheel drive.

If you have a clutch, maybe look into an extra master and slave cylinder. Once again, one of those "this sucks" when it dies.

Adjust your parking brake while you are in there.

Misc nuts and bolts. Always come in handy.
Misc wire. Handy.

Drain the battery fully then see what kind of voltage the alternator puts out. If its shooting out ~14+ volts with a nearly dead battery, then it'll be fine. If it is struggling, then look into a rebuild/replacement. Easier to do it at home. Also you could pull the starter and give it a good cleaning. Top tip: a hi-lift handle works REALLY good for wacking the crap out of a starter.

Look into common sensors that fail. Probably a MAF and a crank/camshaft sensor. I think one or both of those can go, and it sucks. Dunno. Ask someone who works on EFI V8s.

Also if you have a distributor, replace all the wires, cap, and rotor. Take the old stuff and throw it in the spares. I occasionally eff up something and I just grab a spare. Oh and get a spare coil and whatever that piece between the ECU and dizzy that always dies. Research that.

Other than that, install LED bulbs and headlights so you don't have to worry about carrying spares. Roll out.

Make sure your factory bottle jack works. I know that sounds stupid, but bottle jacks can leak out all of their oil, and then they no workie. This sucks and the jack is actually super handy.

Oh and get a safety seal tire plug kit. Much win.

How good are your shocks? From my research, if you have crap shocks, Baja will let you know...and then you need shocks.

That is all I got. Wish you lived closer. One of my buddies has a "emergency spares" toolkit for a D1 he is trying to get rid of. I bet some/most of the crap is applicable to your truck. Also going through and simply having "a piece of mind" on most of this will go a long way. Getting it fixed at your leisure is better than trying to cobble together something to get you home.

Dunno. Just some ideas.

My only mobility kill on my 300tdi was some how I lost all bolts on a pulley.... That is now a pre flight check and I carry a few spare.

Not really.

I have friends traveling through Guatemala right now in a Land Snoozer. They have plenty more spares than booze. Sounds like a cool thing to say though.

I think we're very much in alignment on this one, Chris. I'm aiming to do as much maintenance before I go as I have time for. A new Allisport rad is on order. Break pads are going to be done. Break bleed was just done. I'm an obsessive "replacer". More often than not I just replace a whole assembly and keep the old as a spare.

I want to take as few spares as possible but I also want to make sure that what I bring has the highest potential of usefulness. Weight and size of spare is as important as is probability of failure. I've done my front bearings but not my rear ones and I may not get to them before departure so I will bring a set because they are very small and lightweight. I'm replacing the head gasket before I go because I have a leak already. Shock bushings are tiny and weight nothing so why not bring a set?

I thought there would be some value in having a thread like this to ramble on about different ideas and points of view. There was a good article in the most recent issue of Overland Journal about this but there's also value in discussing tips and tricks related to this, particularly when its vehicle specific.

I've got JW Speaker LED headlights so... nay bother! That said it doesn't hurt to have driving lights or another set of already installed lights for independent redundancy should your headlights fail.

You shouldn't need a switch if you've rewired the headlights with a relay. The switch works fine when it is not overloaded.

I have driven a troopy across Afghanistan for 10 months.....never one issue. Across Belize, guat, panama, Colombia, and Peru. Guess experiences vary. I love my rovers for what they are but don't fool myself when stuff matters.

Yep...saw this happen last year at MAR.
Headlights went out on a friends 90 and had to drive back to camp behind someone else because no aux lights!

Same here. Driven Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala with no major issues.
Only things that went wrong were a lost harmonic dampener from the from axle, a bent Safari Gard tie rod, and brake failure in the mountains of Mexico which was remedied by pulling the ABS fuse.
