    Michigan anyone?

    Hey gang...

    Driving to Michigan next week to pick up my 29 OL.... I have to make the trip in as LITTLE time as possible....~1400 miles. Anything you can suggest that I may not be thinking of to take along? Ratchet straps, extra spare tire? Any other suggestions?:

    Thanks!

    Well spare set of lug nuts, Big ass jack, tools, cash, four leaf clover and a rabbits foot.

    Might I suggest two jacks, trust me, you never know when you will need more than one. Last time I traveled the bottle jack I had broke. Ever since, I started carrying a full floor jack as well as a back up smaller bottle jack. Spare Straps, spindle and bearing, lug nuts, lug wrench, bearing grease, at least two spares for a very long trip, electrical tape as well as some spare wire, zip ties, butt connectors, wire pliers, assorted tools for changing a spindle, chocks, spare trailer tongue lock, Bungee cords (never know).

    Just a few of the things in my bed box. Yeah, I might be over prepared but is there such a thing?
