    If you build it right, you won't need that many spare parts! I carry hoses, belts and PS hoses. If I were going FAR, axles/diffs and maybe a d/s.....

    For the Rubicon, you should figure what will break first, axles or diffs and make sure to carry the one that snaps first...so if it is axles, carry enough for your car and if multi RRC's go, A diff for the group....if you are that worried.....

    You need to sit down and talk to Jarrod and Landiman, as they seem to "drive" the Rub more often than most....

    Also, Ron....I wanted to come to Ellis Peak...but is it really going to be in OCT WITH the NCLR run......

    and thread title changes made.

    Thanks Mike for both for the title change and suggestions.

    Ellis Peak is slated for Oct same time as last year's recce run. Figured less crowed, hopefully some rain to add snow on the trail but not knee deep in Dec-March.

    Is there a Month better for you?

    This trail was fun - we can run the easy part of the Rubicon as an option and turn back.

    Alot depends on your driving style. Here are shots of my truck, 10 spline/open on 34's. I had bumpers and capped diffs but no sliders. A couple dents (mostly due to inexperianced spotter) but made it through no problem. Front and rear recovery points (not Jate rings) are also a must in my book.

    The earlier RRC's dont have the lockout solenoid on the Shifter or on the Tcase, so the brake light switch is an issue there, but I did have mine catch on fire one time.


    For spares, a spare CV is always nice to have. A spare tierod is also nice if you are running a stock one. I would also relocate the steering stabilizer to the Defender position. Ive never had a driveshaft issue, but given the option, i would take spare axles over a spare driveline.

    -Jeff

    Edit: If you run steel wheels on an ABS RRC, I would also recomend the series metal axle caps, the plactic ones dont stay on.

    Tools? any thing you need to change an axle/CV incl a hub nut wrench. I also carry Vice grips (12LC-3) in case of a front shock issue.

    so question....brake light thingy....even on a 1988? Maybe I need to get a spare then, just in case someday...

    Also, why no Jate rings? I have the hitch mount point, but my GDE has fronts, I need to get a bridle so I can not put force on just one ...I can pull on both...and then just count the days till the it bends...

    I THINK my brake switch went bad due to a corroded ground at the light. It created high resistance and melted (flamed) the switch.

    Jate rings are fine for transport but not adequate for recovery. The bolt diameter is too small IMO. Ill let Granny tell of his experience with them.


    I have 2 R&P 4wd shackle mounts on my front bumper

    ,

    and a Warn receiver in the rear. Even if you don't use this, I would recommend putting something in the rear receiver, as it isn't reinforced and can bend in at teh opening, not allow you to put a hitch in later.

    Thanks Jeff!

    Wow! Cool pics - I like this one:



    By the way, just want to confirm, RRC doesn't have the lockout solenoid so the brake light switch going out is "not" an issue if what you meant to type. Right. Thanks!

    Count me in with my RRC Ron! I promised my son Greg we would do the Rubicon last year and never made it. This year is a must!

    I have these spares to bring along and can share if needed.
    Rear axles
    LWB rear driveshaft
    Front BW drive shaft
    Front LT230 drive shaft
    Front CV's
    Coil
    Plugs
    PS Pump

    Plus I have my trail tool kit that can do most anything.

    - Steel Rims w/metal valve stem

    - 265/75/16s BFG MTs

    - LT230 (to be installed)

    - Hella 4000 lights + wiring kit

    Wish List:

    - 1989-93 SWB RRC (this is the big one of course)

    - Custom bumper/winch

    - HD diff carrier & axle shafts

    - HD steering components

    - Diff guards

    - Gas tank skid

    - Added: recovery front and rear

    Spare parts:

    - Drive shaft front and rear/u-joints

    - Cooling hoses

    - Power steering pump (?)

    - Brake light switch (is it the same issue with RRC if the switch goes out; I know on my prev D1 and current D2, yes)

    - More to come...

    - Added: PS Hoses

    Tools:

    - Added: Tools to change axles/CV

    - More to come...

    I hopeing there will be another RRC or two will be in the run so we can jointly plan and load balance the spare parts to carry. Perhaps one carry spare drive shaft and the other power steering pump, etc...

    For RRC, what other spare parts would you carry for the Rubicon?

    Thanks!

    Edit: how can I change the title on this thread from "Dup" to Rubicon Ready Ranger Rover Classic Parts List Questions

    Funny, now that you mention it, my coil fried about 2 miles from Tahoma on the way out.
