Although my F250 is still new and has considerable warranty time left I have concerns while travelling in remote areas about having the required spares in case of failure. Generally I travel with fan belts and radiator hoses. However, not being 100% familiar with the F250 7.3 ltr at this stage I am wondering what other F250 owners have as spares while travelling for extended periods in remote areas. I have done some initial investigation and was surprised at the cost of some components: radiator hoses top $16, bottom $135, Serpentine belt $105 and a Cam Position Sensor $350. At the very minimum I will carry hoses, belts and filters but I do not want to go overboard at this stage with a new truck and carry everything. What do other people consider should be important spares?

Hey, have a talk to your Ford dealer and make an arrangement that they supply you a range of spares (that you consider you require, given your concern), you pay up front and they refund you on your return for spares not used and still unopened.

Or if they like, as the vehicle is still under warranty, they come out to woop woop and fix it!!!

You'll continue to use them as you local service department and everyone should be happy.
