    Cool Should I get spare parts?

    Hi Guys,

    Leaving for Botswana in a week for 2 weeks going through the pans, savuti up to Chobe and back.

    I've had the Jeep for a month now, only done 2500km since I bought her new. She is going in for a pre-trip check on Monday but I was wondering if it is necessary to spare parts with like maybe air filter, oil filter, fuel filter etc?

    I'm taking the basics in my recovery kit like hose repair tape, duct tape etc...

    Advise would be appreciated.

    I always carry spare parts such as a fanbelt, fuel filter etc. Any vehicle can break down and when it happens you will be far from help.
