    A very important thing to consider!
    Consider that all the extra spares induce weight which then often leads to other failures.

    When on long runs my tool kit weighs less than 10kg and the number of spares is absolutely minimal.

    Itís the R&M that is done throughout the vehicles life that dictates how it will behave in long trips. If itís pampered it will usually behave.

    I very much concur. But - go figure. On our current 3/4AU trip the front diff did a bearing at 240K km - even our faithful independent LR Indie go to man (DazzaTD5 on here) wasn't expecting that one.

    IMHO...
    I recommend customers take ME (and Perentie, I hate being a passenger). All you have to do is feed me

    Got that right, even after doing two oil changes on the diffs before you went, and the fact they drained cleaned I wasnt thinking that one at all

    No need for hoist. I dropped my starter to do second turbo drain.
    The difficulty is inversely proportional to patience.

    Anyone looking to offload travelling spares?

    Hi all. I'm heading off on an extended trip soon, borders permitting. Before I launch into acquiring a range of travelling spares from the UK, is there anyone in the Canberra region who has a set of necessary travelling spares that they might be looking to offload? I have a 2014.5 3L SDV6 HSE. Thanks in advance.
