What kind of rally are you going to? Wipers? "Break" pads?

Not sure why you need front u joints; if you're tearing up your truck and need replacement for those at a rally pull the driveshaft and leave it locked up (I carry enough to ensure a RWD truck)

Depending on terrain you should consider some spare brake lines for the front at least; I've had something reach in and snap one.

Fuel filter vice air filter (if your air filter is that dirty hit it with compressed air to clean it enough to get you home).

If you are going so far as to carry all four half shafts, might as well carry pre-greased bearings for a couple of ends too.

Don't forget the little stuff like jb weld, gasket maker, etc. You'll note that a lot of the big stuff you're carrying is going to cube you out quick on space and weigh a bunch.

I have a box with most failure parts including an entire ignition system (cap/plugs/wires/rotor/coil/ignition module/ECU/relays), alternator, water pump, drivetrain and steering crap if I think I will have an issue, always carry wheel bearings.

How far you are going and who you are traveling with, and the kind of terrain you are dealing with are big factors in this decision. Add spare flip flops to your list

Track rod. Having snapped one on a stump I can tell you that you're going Nowhere without a welder and some scrap metal. I carry one with the TREs already installed.

I generally carry Galpin & Huff, that usually covers my needs. Though ironically it was my winch used to straighten out Huff's tie rod last trip to Rausch so the tables were turned!

This is all good info guys, thanks.

I've recently relocated to California from rural Alberta up in Canada, it's interesting to see what folks carry in different parts of the country. Guess it's time to trade in my snow chains for sand ladders... Anyone interested in an auxiliary heater? I'll trade for an AC system ;-)

The little guy under the passenger seat, it's a stock item on Canadian 90s. I think there's plugs on all the NAS harnesses for it, not sure. It was on my truck when I bought it.
