Everyone who will spend any time off road should practice this. Go out in your driveway and change a front axle U-joint and a driveshaft U-joint with your trail tools. If you don't have all the right tools in your bag you need to put them there. This stuff isn't nearly as hard if you have the right tools. I carry a harbor freight U-joint toolthat is essentially a big C-clamp. I also carry a smaller C-clamp that so I can attach the Harbor freight U-joint tool to my bumper while I am using it. It’s a HUGE help.

For fluids I carry 1 gallon of motor oil. Motor oil will lube most stuff if it’s just for the drive home. I’ve used it to fill diffs and transmissions. I carry a ton of drinking water so I bring one quart of undiluted antifreeze. Also I carry 2 quarts of ATF for steering and the T-case if necessary. All this fits nicely in a ammo can that gets put in the jeep any time I plan on hitting the dirt.
