    What do you mean by a repair kit? I usually carry a spare trip spring, eye bolt, coupler, hose, fluid, plow pin & hitch pin, and enough tools to change the above in addition to all the other stuff in my truck.

    I always carry extra fluids and parts.
    Springs.hoses,hose clamps,tubing and tools!
    I carry 10 quarts of Tranny fluid in case I blow a tranny cooling line.
    And I have a Leather Man in my pocket to make most of the repairs..

    I would say put one of your own together. The kits they sell sometimes have parts you don't need for you model or don't have what you will.

    Yep these are the parts that I am talking about about. Was not sure if it was cheaper to put together a parts kit or make one myself. Thanks for the input.
