taking my 2012 trd sport (auto) from WV to OK at the end of march and will be making the return trip at the end of april... it's roughly 1250 miles one way. The truck has 6333 miles right now and had it's first service at 5k as recommended (and will have it's second service at 10k as recommended and free with toyota care). Also have toyota road side assistance.
I have a full size inflated spare tire (factory), 2 good flash lights, rugs, sleeping bag, tow straps, bungie straps, hand tools, hammer, rubber gloves, fishing string, paracord, duck tape, breaker bar with socket to fit my lug nuts, tow strap (very good one), cluster hook, heavy duty 15 foot chain, light 25 foot chain with pad lock, small can of WD40, can of fix a flat, tire repair kit, bic lighter, pry bar/very large flat head screw driver, head lamp, napkins, kleenex's, sunglasses, side walk chalk, 15x15 feet of sheet plastic ,spare eye glasses, a few knives, small multitool. Ipod mount for windshield (for gps use) and old school back up garmin GPS (for no cell signal.. maps are outdated but would work). 3x8 foot piece of cardboard folded up to 3x1 foot (country creeper).
that's all in there for daily use.. the only thing i can think of is to check the oil,tire pressure, coolant, power steering fluid, and washer fluid before leaving. Hope i wouldnt have problems needing spare belts or hoses with a less then 10k mile truck. Will probably buy and throw in a small floor jack...
what else should i take for the road trip? Last time i did the same trip in a 04 GTO and didnt have any hic-ups. will probably load up container and throw in the bed with things i 'could' use.
going to buy one of these containers
because it will fit under the tonneau cover... should i leave the tonneau cover on or change to my bestop soft topper?
thanks for the advice in advance... looking forward to hearing the good ideas.
