Prerunner/ spares package

I am interested in what spares you guys might carry on your RZR prerunners when your down in Mexico. I feel like I am taking some of the basics, but I am looking for any items that I might be missing. There's no substitute for experience. Here's what I am carrying on a 2015, 4 seat non turbo RZR. Extra gas tank mounted under passenger seat, two jugs of coolant, two spare tires with jack, two belts, tool kit, front and rear cv, one tie rod, two radius rods, small supply of various nuts and bolts. I don't have any electrical parts. I am looking for stuff that might typically break. Any input would be appreciated.

You don't need two spare tires. Just one, and ride with someone who also has a rzr spare. And take a plug kit. If you get a flat, change it out and next time you go by a tire shop have them patch the inside of the tire.

I can't believe it hasn't been said....spare axle is a must. Inner and outer CVs are differant so I would carry a complete rear axle assembly ready to drop in.

Dude. Haven’t you figured it out yet? Just by a second car. Have some dude you don’t like drive it. When your car breaks just hop in the other car and keep going and leave him standing there with a broken car.

It’s the lightest way to travel.

Seriously though. How much weight do you want to strap on the car? Or are you going to have a chase truck for the prerunner?

In the 7000 miles we have pre run In RZR s we have yet to use a drop of fluid , if a RZR is using fluid you have a major, what we carry onboard , spare rear hubs including bearings - rear axle - front axle - bolts , lots of them - links - 2 or three belts - spare tire - tools - first Aid kit - towrope - sat phone. On the truck have basically a spare full suspension kit including shocks and springs.

I agree with not carrying fluids. The diff and trans are different, so is the engine oil. To have all your basis covered you'd have a ton of fluids on board. Any major leak on a RZR is indicative of a time bomb, so you're better off limping it in and calling it a day. I'd carry a cap to cap off brake lines before I carry brake fluid. If you carry gas, make sure it's in a solid container cause any leak will be directly over your engine/exhaust.

I'd only carry a rear axle, not a front if space is limited. I think OEM tie rods are a good way of protecting your rack and spindles, but you need to carry a spare. Radius rods should be beefed up or you're asking to blow a set of rods, trailing arm, axle, and shock. A fuel pump is also a good idea, along with some wiring supplies.

At the end of the day, it really depends on how you drive. We have nearly zero issues with our RZR, but we don't drive it like a race car.
