That's what I'm talking about! I plan on donating several parts to CM for the future. If we all did it we would have a great supply and an easy way for folks to find stuff. Also, someone (Nakman?) had a brainstorn or inventorying what parts other folks brought with them. That would REALLY help!

Right, the idea was everyone would "turn in" their spare spares to the trailer, to be inventoried (maybe in exchange for a free gift or something?) but then trail leaders would get an inventory of what parts were available, so they'd be able to decide to send someone back, or limp something out, or leave it, etc. A benefit for loaning your spares is if someone uses it they buy you a new one, perhaps. Needs to be ironed out a little, but the idea could work well I think...

This could be a sweet deal. Maybe a bit chaotic but would sure help when it comes to crunch time.

I remember we had talked about it prior to the event, and I was intending to drop off the axles that Kevin brought me (thanks Kevin!). When I found out that no one else was leaving their spares in the trailer, I just left them in my camp.

Spares I normally carry in my rig:

Birf
Coil
Fuel filter
Fuel pump
Distributor
Lock Right

New addition this year:

Tie rod ends

3rd member, axles and driveshafts are kinda big to carry on the trail, I figure they're more like "send somebody back to camp" type items.

I don't know, what with all the axles that have been breaking lately, might not be a bad idea to carry them with, I guess the only downside is you really need to have all four shafts to be covered! . Maybe you could get by with just the rears and hope the birfs break before the front inners do?

Let's see, two 60 series rears (long side right?) have broken recently, and Farr broke which side last year? Was that long side too?

long sides are more apt to break with the torque.

This year I carried every inner axle part except for the long side and I had that sitting at camp.

No knuckle or 4.88's though

Correct. There is also a growing trend lately it seems. The long sides constant torque loading and unloading is showing it's stress on these 200k + mile axles!
