    Well like many of you I am attending BB05' this year and can't stop thinking about it. Right now my rig is healthy with 35's,locked F/R, X over steering, Fuel cell, winch. Trail spares include: 35" spare tire, front and rear axle shafts, hubs, driveshafts f/r, and an assortment of tools and air supply.

    What all do you guys look over before a big trip like this?

    Just want to get an idea of what to go over before the big trip.

    Also my rig will be flat towed to Moab behind my CTD :D

    throw in an extra serpentine belt or v-belts, depending on the application.

    short piece of muffler pipe (2") and 2 hose clamps for rad. hose repairs.

    common fluids i.e. water and maybe a quart or 2 of the oils you use.

    drinking water and MRE's

    tire plug kit (i know you have a spare, but there's always that chance)

    some spare wire, alligator clips, tape of your choice, RVT sealer, and random nuts and bolts.

    i know there is more, but that's all i'm gonna post

    1 gallon for drinking water per day per person is my rule-of-thumb for any trail ride.

    Don't overdo it, but pretty much anything you can think of is a good idea to bring and at least keep at camp. Even if you don't need something, somebody else might. There's no better feeling than to be sitting around at camp drinking a cold beer after a day on the trail and seeing a poor fella looking for something for his rig for the next day's ride, and being able to help him.

    I will make it to a BB within the next 2 years. It is my goal :D

    Mike

    That is a great article. I was using that as a guide to what I would be taking, at least most of the stuff. I was also wondering what to go through.....i.e. tighten up all bolts, etc.

    There is a list on here from Rob (therobzilla) and Harley (Hossbaby50), the 2 AZ resident pack rats, as to what they carry. The list has everything from food to nuts/bolts, hard parts, computers, it is really very detailed and I know for a fact each of them left out a good bit.

    Beer, zip ties, duct tape, crescent wrench, vise grips.

    Strap the cooler down in the back, throw everything else in the glove box.
