I was thinking more along the lines of bare neccecity, like maybe an air pump. Along those lines.

You shouldn't need a fuel can.  I never did.

That's good to know. I do a lot of off road in sxs ( side by side ) utv's. I've seen guys show up with nothing. "Does anyone have a lug wrench" or " anyone have a spare tire ". ?????? Just don't want to be that guy. Lol.

There usually are a few breakdowns on the trails so those that bring some tools have been much appreciated.

I won't name him, but one particularly well-known participant did lose a rear wheel last year much to everyone's delight - other than him, of course.  That's why I made the crack about tightening lug nuts.

Jet,
take a good look at your jeep and see if there are any small parts that you have not maintained or messed with in a long time.  Those are the parts that may go out on the trail.  To the extent you have money and space, bring parts to help you keep going. 

Although this year we're going to put together a Willys First Aid and Recovery Kit.  We talked about it quite a bit last year and got some good ideas.  The idea is that we will have a fairly complete kit to take with us into the mountains with parts and perhaps some tools to help us repair any malfunctions and keep all the Jeeps moving on their own.  Once we get a broken Jeep back to the shop, then we can get serious about repairs.  Last year we swapped out an alternator on one jeep and a leaf spring and crankshaft pully on another.  And who knows how many fuel pumps and carbs got serviced?? 

So Jet, keep asking questions and keep making your plans.  You're doing the right things to get ready for the adventure of your life! 

PS.  SAM!! You're a rascal!!

Now Sam, there is no documented evidence for the said event.  There is only rumor and innuendo.............

Two jeeps on the road, one is close and the rest are dreams.

Well, I did have my phone with camera and I was immediately behind this particular Jeep.  I would upload the photo, but I don't want to embarrass anyone here! I can testify that when the wheel separated from the Jeep that the wheel did speed up and begin to overtake the Jeep before toppling over in the adjacent field.  LOL

I have it on very good authority that the wheel in question was only following the tire's advice.  The jeeps were going too slow and both wheel and tire wanted to get up the mountain.  Unfortunately for them, once they left the jeep behind they argued about the route and got sidetracked into the ditch.  But they were zipping along when they did pass the jeep!! Embarrassed LOL 

BTW, we'll be soliciting a donation of some right hand thread studs with lug nuts for this year's Willys first aid and recovery kit.  Sam, I'll be you know where a 5-pack of those could be found, don't you?

Well, Mike, I can certainly understand your concern about having extra lug nuts and studs for any emergencies that might arise.  I'm sure that all the usual suspects in the antique Jeep supplier market carry the gear to hold wheels on Jeeps.  Perhaps you should check them out! Wink
