What replacement parts, besides filters, do you guys, have in the tool box for long runs?I have to carry an extra stock lift pump :doh: and fuel pressure sending unit for the gauge.Are there any sensors or extra parts that are important?My last long run was over 1200 miles. What a blast!:ahhh:T.I.A.

I am on the road from the job to home alot and all i carry is tools. I figure no matter what I carry if something breaks it is going to be the part i dont have. Some might think i crazy but this has served me well for the past 25 years. I'm sure some others here will have something to add though.

I carry extra fuses, wire, multi-meter, and wiring diagrams for those roadside emergency repairs.

I carry a Triple AAA card :lmao::thumb1: also a spare fuel filter and serpentine belt and what ever tool would be needed to change each.

I believe that is Murphy's Law. I am the same though. Just tools. I give the truck a good once over before I leave for a long haul. Lot easier to do any work in the comfort of your own garage than along side of the road!

Occasionally Mr. Murphy is my copilot. But thankfully not often.

Mr Murphy has stayed away for the most part.... once going down the road carrying an extra fuel pump, 30 miles from home my fuel pump went out I was a block from my buddies then, but, that was a short haul so I guess it doesn't count.

I usually carry everything but what I need. I have been all over in my truck, nearly coast to coast (as far west as AZ and east to FL) and have had pretty good luck except with electical crap but that seems like a never ending battle.:ahhh:

Spare no-AC serp belt. I've used that more than I care to count, I can't keep a compressor in this damn thing, I may just give up.Tools - at least enough to tighten/bleed injector lines.Test light - saved me a few times with lighting issues.I should bring more air fittings and spare line with than I do, and I should carry a spare air compressor but I don't. (I need air for the RoadRanger)I don't carry spare filters. On a long trip I grab my toolbox and go. Most things that will stop me can be had at either a Cummins dealer or big box store - but issues seem to always happen on a Sunday afternoon just after closing time. It's all about getting to work around Murphy!
