    I carry a spare drive belt, clutch puller tool. I also carry a spare tire on a rim, small bottle jack, small air pump and tire plugs and a torque wrench. I also have a small bag with tools with metric sockets to replace drive belt, tire; also carry extra fuses, etc.

    Thanks Papa-t, I hadn't thought of the fuses, clutch puller or the torque wrench. I appreciate the answer.

    Well I carry a cheap torque wrench (Walmart special) to check lug nuts and to use in case I need to put the spare on. Also Carry a couple deep well sockets for both lug nuts on aluminum wheels and the sockets for the standard steel wheel which are different sizes. I made me a torque wrench holder out of pvc pipe and a pvc screw top with a piece of foam inside on the bottom and in the top screw to keep it from getting beat up; and a solid bottom glued on with pvc pipe glue.

    A big thanks to everyone who gave me some advice on what spares to take, I have attached some pics for your amusement, thankfully i didn't need any spares for the trip and the ACE 570 went great 8 days at 150-170km covered per day used the full tank of gas each day.
    I got to use the winch, which only took a couple of minutes to get me out of a bog.
    Also tested the roll cage and it performed fine with only the rear brush guard needing to be pulled back off the body.
    It also went fine through a few salt water river crossings 100 yards wide and up to 2ft deep.
    Only damage on the trip was to the left quarter panel after a collision with a kangaroo at speed, didn't see it coming and scared the crap out of me at the time.

    Thanks CS

    What happen with the kangaroo? I have to say there’s probably very few people that can actually say they hit a kangaroo with an Ace. Glad your ok.
