OK now. Some of you may think I started this thread to find out who will be carrying the extra parts so when I break I know who to call for help. Your right.:D

Last year BrothrDave offered up a rear driveshaft when I lost the rear u-joint. fortunately, I had an extra in the Jeep.

I will assume most if not all will have the basic recovery gear, camping gear, food and beer or beverages of choice. But, what about when an alternator goes out after a water crossing?

Whacha bring'n?

I've got a 3/4' breaker bar and 36mm socket for the axle nuts that I might as well say I'll add to my list. that and a nice 4' cheater. works great. I'll probably throw in a unit bearing or two, spare track bar (just cause I have one) some random nuts and bolts, and blah blah blah
