Cam Positon Sensor
Air filter?
Fuel filter?

Thanks!

Well the CPS would be a good idea, the air filter if your in severe dirty enviroment, Fuel filter if your in a severe dirty enviroment. Wheel bearing if you want to haul around your whole work shop then you can carry an extra one.

I carry an extra cps, engine oil, tranny fluid, coolant.

haha, ya well we DO have the towing capacity

But ya I figure keep it on board (wheel bearing) and not pay the dealer price in anycase? Might be overkill I don't know- Just thinkin in the breeze...

I just don't know of anyone that has replaced one on the side of the road. Plus they are not cheap, looking at 300 dollars and that is from NAPA autoparts.

camera for just in case you get into an accident.... got screwed over once and didnt have any pictures to prove anyone wrong... but i guess now a days people have camera phones so that will do perfectly... the hammer well its just an all around great tool.... obvioulsy if you need to break something off when doing repairs.....now in my tool box i have a high lift jack, torque wrench, my full set of dewalt tools (6 pieces) oh a Tire Guage is a must, air down tools, a portable air pump, cant remember what else is in their but gives you a good idea of what i usually carry.... im in the process of putting a whole air line setup on my truck with my 300psi air bags, 2 5 gallon tanks so that i can run air tools off of my truck.....
