I carry the same things you do, along with a starter and enough tools and such to tear the motor down... But IDM's are not one of those things I think to carry... If I could get a working one cheap/free then maybe. Doesn't take up much space.
What to carry depends on how far you go ..what you use your truck for etc.
someone like joe goes a good ways away for weeks on end.
Someone close to home would be better off with AAA towing the rig to the house for a fix..
This is mostly for when I travel from NY to Fl. I forgot I already carry a spare PCM as well. As the truck is aging, I was wondering if I should bring any extra things. I put the ford valve cover gasket shims in a few years ago when I did the o-rings on the injectors. I want to cover the usual 7.3 failures. When I am local. I put the spare alt back in the garage.
