Road Trip Packing List

Road Trip Tools and Spares

What tools and spares should you carry when you head out on the road with your LBC? It is always a bit of a crap shoot as to whether the bits that you decide to take with you are going to be the ones you need to keep you from being stranded on the side of the road waiting for a tow. You need to strike a balance between taking so much that there is no room in the boot for your partner's luggage and not taking that basic tool or electrical component that would have kept you going. The following is a list of the bits that I would suggest you take:

You should also make sure that the spare tire, jack, and wheel nut wrench are accounted for and that you have checked the torque on your lug nuts.
