Thank you Stan,

Most of the items mentioned are already on the list, incl spare hoses and belts. But I wouldn't take spare 2 spare shocks, but I hope with a recently fitted aftermarket suspension I should be fine... or at least I pretty much hope so.

Dirk,

As I said depends how remote you are going. The spare shocks are mainly for
offroad travels like CSR/Simpson Desert/etc... BTW, what brand of suspension did you ended up getting?

I also carry amongst other things spare bits and pieces like fuses nuts and bolts etc.
5min araldite, fencing wire, duct tape, plastic ties. It's amazing what you can fix with these things.

For the usual run around the block plus deviations you don't need spares, just regular good servicing.

There are plenty of service centres and that is a common vehicle.

More likely a vehicle would fail in a city where it does the slow stuff in traffic.

If you get interested in tough stuff in remote areas you are better off tagging along with an experienced person or club and in that case you would be getting some experience and training up-front which would include vehicle set-up, supplies, communications and so on.

Along with thousands of others I've towed vans around Oz with family sedans in the early 70's when roads were much less well-developed. Never had a problem. Our 100 Series 4.2 TD is a luxury behemoth compared with a secondhand sixties Falcon auto.

I am amazed at the largely unnecessary fitout (and weight) of the fourbies cruising Oz. They are testament to the power of aftermarket equipment advertising. With the greatest respect to all concerned, the aftermarket stuff breaks before the vehicle though.

Use common sense, have fun and don't sweat it.

Thank you to all your replies so far.

Just in case we might have had a little misunderstanding. Of course I will apply common sense and of course the vehicle will be fitted out accordingly to what we intend to do.

I was simply looking for some kind of useful feedback on real spare parts only. Of course we will have the appropriate recovery gear and I agree, that with a relatively new 4WD we shouldn't experience too much trouble.

Nevertheless I always like to hear other opinions.

Thank you, Dirk
