So much for progress.
Buy an IR thermometer reader -- good for diagnosing issues. Measure exhaust header temps.
I carry an extra coil pak or two and a set of spark plugs.
I have the spare hubs ready to go (thanks woody)
I need to pick up some radiators -- on my list.
I have spare side mirrors and tail lights.
Had a spare tranny -- had to swap it out.
Shifter cables can wear out and or pop off.
I carry a spare fuel filter, and fuel pump relay. Having a spare fuel pump would be a good idea.

If I had room in the trailer -- i'd add a spare front and rear bumper... and hope I was just hauling them for someone else :-)
