Emergency Spare Parts

Do you guys keep emergency spares? I'm considering buying a PCM and FICM for backup. I have a2004.5 build, what specifics should I be looking for in both of these items to make sure they work with my truck?

Neither of those fail suddenly. I can count on one hand the amount of 6.0 PCM's I've seen go bad, let alone suddenly. The FICM is a good idea in theory, but in practice they give you plenty of warning before leaving you stranded.

If you want to stock up on spares, an FICM, an alternator, glow plug rails, Degas bottle, and some hoses couldn't hurt. Not that you'd have to carry them with you, but keeping them at home is a good idea.

I run with a spare FICM. I'd like to have a spare everything, but when do you stop collecting?

I'll tell you what-the 6.0 Isn't like the 7.3. Try changing the CPS or CMP on the side of the road-especially on a truck that has seen road salt-IMPOSSIbLE.

The only thing I keep spares of is coolant, filter hosing o rings, and some oil. I do keep spare boat water separators, filters and prop in the truck tho! There is nothing less reliable than a boat with a small block!!!!

Not meaning to carry it all on my truck. Just in the garage. But the idea of a spare belt and such. My main question is how do I make sure an ICM and FICM are going to allow me to swap an drive until I repair or replace the original. Are they year or strategy particular?

I understand completely, I can't locate one and the other I have to use several extensions and swivels to even get close. I can't fit my arms in at all.

The pcm's are interchangable along the same body style-03 and 04 interchange, and 05-07 interchange. As for the FICM, they will all interchange.
