I have a spare radio or 2 if anyone wants to purchase one for the trip. Standard vertex 3200 I believe, already setup with club frequency will need antennas but have mic. UPDATE THEY ALL GONE 4/10/17

looks like we have about 10 cars going so far.!!! We got 2 bone stock Baja's and a Side by side in the mix.. WOW!

One quad that wants to drive over 4 peaks with us and come back the same day.

AND YES a stock baja can make the 400miler.

Bring the basics. Spare tire,tool kit, tow rope. Some people bring spare CV's,
spindles, tie rods etc. but honestly you never can cover everything, ask Dalton about link pins.. He packs enough stuff to rebuild a car but you never know what you will need. Don't worry no one gets left behind but do the group a favor and pretrip the hell outa yor car is the best insurance, check cv bolts trailing arm pivot bolts, stub axle nut,tie rod castle nuts, lug nuts etc.etc...

A spare tire, or tire plugs and a pump. Lug wrench, tow strap, tools that fit the car. A couple quarts of oil for the motor. Dependent on the ignition components you run, a spare set of points and condenser, a spark plug or a full set, spare coil. A few common nuts and bolts for the car, especially shock bolts and nuts cause that's what falls off the most. WATER. I keep a first aid kit in the car that has all the things you might need as well as one of those fold up heat blankets. They sell small $10 ones at walmart that have everything you might need. If you know you've broken something before, bring spares.

Hi I am new to the AZBaja scene what is recommended that I bring. It's my first time offroad in my bug.

For this run I have a truck and trailer ready to go. all the roads are accessible by a 2 wheel drive to come and get me if needed. for the past 9 years I have never needed to call out for help on the 400miler... but that is only because I have my truck and trailer ready to go. ... the one time I don't hook up my trailer and give some my keys to come and get me I will break...

with my plain "B" out in the open...

like everyone said ... bring the basics ... build the spare parts box on what your car needs are. Most of us will have what you will need the first time. (if you don't return the spare part you use from someone else's parts box they might not share with you again.. ) Very Happy

also remember... if you barrow someone else's part or tire they might want it back if they need it to get home.. Twisted Evil

I would say the two most important things to remember ...

1) slow down... this is not a race. know your limit and your cars capabilities. (Most new people to the 400miler crash or break within the first 10 miles after the first 10 miles most new people make the entire 400 miles.)
There are check points the entire run. There is always a "Tail gunner"

a Tail gunner job is to be the last car on the run, he know the rote, he has a radio and can stop everyone for you.

2) prep your car. If it looks like it going to break replace it. If it looks like it going to come off or come loose, fix it. bad/old tires wont make it over the hill.

There is cell phone service 90% of the time.

don't drive off the main trail. Stop and wait for the next car to show you the way. Most of the check points are at turns.

bring some can goods as plain "B" if something bad happens to your food/cooler or you cant make it into town.

Faster cars ... let them pass. by the time we get to the other side of the hill everyone will kinda know who will be riding with who.

Eggs don't off road well... they will trash EVERYTHING in your cooler. I will let someone else tell you there stories ...

I know of only one way to transport eggs safely... (I sure there are others...)


A thought I use ..
"it is better to bring it and not need it... than need it and leave it at home."

I am hoping to make it as well. just put a 1600 Dp in my bug with a 2 barrel progressive carb. took it out today around town and now its poping out of first gear (it's a swing axle) . looking for a new trans but don't have a huge budget (I'm 16). going to try and steal the trans off my dad's bug and put it in until I can get a new/rebuilt trans. He is going to try and make it as well. Also I am in the market for new tires I wanna go with BFG A/T only because my baja is my daily as well, any recommendations or words of advice ???? If anyone is looking to sell some parts please call me, always in the market for parts.
