G'day Gunnie, I'm sure most of us members at ExplorOz would delight in giving you 'our' list but to stop any arguments why don't you go to the heading 'Vehicle Requirments' and look under Spare Parts & Tools there is a huge list there for you to choose from.
Hope that helps

A wide floppy hat, a cool drink and a sat phone to let some other bugger fix it while I enjoy myself, LOL

Gunnie,
some Toyota driver is going to say Block and Tackle, so as a Landie driver I'll just save them the trouble :-)

Hi Gunnie,
Realisticly,...you can only really do minor roadside repairs..IMHO before you venture out into our beutiful country have you truck serviced ask the mech is there anything you should know ? Take the tools the manuel says and if you can travel with friends and ofcourse take reliable comunications,I mean you can take everthing you could think of and then you would have no room for anything else.40 mins in the driveway compared to hours in the bush!! Good Luck.

Gunnie,

There are a couple of schools of thought here. Some say carry enough to do a full rebuild. I know a guy who carries a spare clutch kit!!! Then again he does drive a troopy.

My experience suggests that whatever you prepare for won't break it will be something else. Murphy lives in the bush.

I carry a full socket set and a realtively small toolbox tightly packed with a pile of mixed spanners, pliers, screwdrivers etc etc. Also I never clean out the toolbox. All those odd nuts bolts and bits of wire that end up in the bottom can come in very handy. I once did a temp repair on a steering linkage with a bit of 3/4 copper pipe and a 2inch nail. A good head is probably the most important tool you can carry.

Your driving a GQ you probably wont need anything. Then again he copper pipe and nail were used on a GQ.

Good luck
Duncs.
