I don't have a list, it would be pretty long. I just go through everything pulling out what I need, and thinking through scenarios that did happen, or could happen. Maybe I should make a list.

Here is some of the stuff.

A list is nice and over the years you start refining it. I've broken ball joints, but such a small items, I may forget them when I'm packing. I'm hoping to get a more permanent set of wheeling tools some day, but until then, I pack for every trip.

In refining, for example, I no longer carry antifreeze. Any water will work great getting me off the trail. When my old fan clutch failed and caused the coolant to over boil, I added water straight from Ellis creek!

My thinking on Antifreeze, if I'm in a situation where it is needed i am probably leaking fluid and i would prefer to not leak any more green stuff than the initial loss. Also if it's an overheat situation water cools better that Antifreeze anyway

Go a step further, if you have space for 3 gals of water for you and 3 gals of antifreeze the truck. Replace with water, now in a emergency I have 6 gals of water to drink!

This list (first post) is still indispensable for me. Last weekend I gave my coil to a guy to help him get off the trail. This weekend I used an old ujoint. Don't forget to save your used parts you change as spares in the future.
