    Trail tools and extra parts

    Hey guys im curious to hear what everyone is carrying with in the jeep as far as tools and extra parts go. Ive been trying to get some things together and i can see already that the weight is adding up. I know its better to have it and not need than to need and not have it but i dont want to over do it. Let me know what you guys bring with you and any ideas you have of good parts to bring just incase. Thanks!

    Yeah i know wrenches,sockets,allen and hex sockets are kinda of a given as well as various fluids. What about parts? I only took my Jeep out 1 once because i finished it so late in the year so i dont have a ton of wheelin time to figure out what to bring in terms of parts.

    I already planned on bringing some psc lines,wheel studs and lugnuts. What about break lines,tie rod ends,extra psc pump,u joints ect? Just want to find a common ground without being a mobile shop.

    Thermostat and upper and lower hoses are a good start.

    Thanks! I woukd have never thought about bringing an extra thermostat. Only a $25.00 part and can prevent a ton of headaches on the trail if one goes out.

    I've never had a thermostat go out. I always check my hoses before long trips, if i feel soft spots then I replace them - but that doesn't happen very often either.
    aside from tools;
    ujoints, antifreeze, oil, spill mats, latex gloves, tp, hydrosteer hose, fluid, clamps and steering box caps in case i need to remove or bypass the psc ram

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
