Default Spare Parts Kit - Cruise Moab

I’m a new member to the forum and recently attended my 1st Rising Sun meeting this month. I’ve signed up for this year’s Cruise Moab and I’m trying to get recommendation on some basic spare parts I should be bringing along. I’ve got a 1998 100 Series with a 2.5 Slee lift and a factory rear locker. Any suggestions on common spare parts I should drag along?

Good list above there, and for the 100 you may add:

As basics start with:
-Ignition Coil packs, 1 or 2.
-Heater 'T's (unless you've just replaced them)
-(maybe) Front Diff output seal.
-(maybe) T-case output seals.

Then for more 'wheeling risk consider a spare CV and maybe a drive flange or two.

Definitely learn about how to isolate the front diff should that ever become necessary, it's fairly straight forward if you've done the front wheel bearing adjustments yourself (and have the tools; brass drift, snap-ring pliers, etc), mud has good info there.

I would also like to have spare drive shaft u-joints and or drive shafts but currently do not, maybe just for the really big trips, not for CM except maybe the overnights.

You really don't need to much to keep a 100 going if it's well maintained to begin with, that should give you a start on it. Others will have more good info for you as well I'm sure.

Welcome and see you in Moab,

Best thing to remember, imo, is that you have so many skilled and experienced wrenchers at Cruise Moab that can be counted on to help out at the drop of a hat, it won't be the end of the world if you do break in Moab. That's no excuse to not be prepared to the best of your ability but you really can't anticipate every possible breakage scenario. Folks at all TLCA events, are ready, willing and able to keep you moving safely and comfortably. Actually, the best place in the world to break your Toyota is at a TLCA sponsored event!

Best way to prepare is to be familiar with the truck, spend as much time laying under it and swapping fluids as you do pouring parts into the back end. Know what your joints look like, know the CV's look like, know your fluid levels like brake & coolant, etc. Then if you do have one of those moments when something doesn't sound or feel right, it won't be like looking under the truck for the first time, and will be more apparent if something is different.

So often the ones who break or have issues are the ones where it was either trailered to the event, or a major mod was done just before leaving town. The daily drivers seem to drive back home again, more often than not. Keep your head on straight and you'll be just fine.

For a 100 series pack a few extra lug nuts and studs, front and rear studs are different iirc.

Like others have said just makes sure your truck is maintained properly. Do that and this conversation is a moot point generally.

Default Thanks

Thanks to all for the great advice. I'm looking forward to learning from others in the club/forum and hopefully won't need much in the way of repair on the trail. My rig gets driven a couple times a week currently and the only things I plan to add before Moab is a new set of tires/rims (upgrading to 18" wheels and BFG KO2) and a set of skid plates from Bump It Off road.

I'm also planning on changing out all the diff fluids/transfer case and having the transmission serviced at Slee before heading out.

Thanks again.
