Spare parts bag

So I'd like to put together a few spare parts to keep in my SMB.
I'm thinking- Belt, Fuel Pump, Coil pack... for starters. Anyone have anything to add?

Is this the correct pump for a 5.4L?

What kind of trip?

Back country travel?
SoCal to the southern tip of South America?

I much prefer OEM spare parts.Knockoff and 'rebuilt' spares fail tooooo often for my taste.

Fuel filter, at least one coil pack if it's a gas van, and a starter would be added to my list, but I can't honestly say I carry much of anything. Usually just tools.

If you have a 6.0 diesel van I would recommend a trailer with another 6.0 diesel on it.

I don't carry much as far as engine parts driving a van with a 6.0PSD. Got a engine belt, a couple of oil filters. I carry a little oil, tape & some electrical connectors, a couple of PVC splices and clamps in case of a coolant leak due to a hose issue. A/B putty and JB weld.

For us 7.3L owners add a Cam Position Sensor to the kit. Otherwise I'm mostly packing basic tools, Gorilla Tape, handful of heavy duty zipties and a spare belt.

Ya just a lot of desert and mountain stuff. I'd hate for a weekend / week to get ruined waiting on parts if my rig breaks down! So I was just looking for input from the 5.4L guys on what they recommend to have as spares.

I have a 5.4 and carry a fuel pump, coil pack, belt, lots of tools, nuts bolts, washers, sealers, bulbs,wood blocks, ratchet straps, epoxy, portable work lights, flares, electrical connectors, crimping tool, ohm meter, wire, jumper cables, penetrating oil, spare fuel, siphon hose, axe, saw,and what ever else I can think of to throw in prior to a trip. If you carry a fuel pump, have a proven plan for changing it in the field. Lowering a full tank will be a challenge. I'm on my third one, and know I could get the tank down if I had no choice. Lots of wood blocks, a good jack, ratchet straps and a few choice words will do it, but it won't be fun.
