2012 SD PSD with 120k miles: spares and Prev. Maintenance

I started this thread on the Super Duty forum, and it was suggested that this would be a better place:
https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...intenance.html

I did read all 14 pages of the cold side intercooler hose thread and will be ordering the Rudy's Diesel replacement.
Anything else to look at or parts to have on hand for a roadside repair, other than what I listed in the other thread? I am very OCD and **** with my truck and keep it as well maintained as possible (I wash, wax and put it under a car cover after EVERY trip, keep all 5 tires inflated properly etc etc etc), but sometimes one doesn't know what one doesn't know....

Thanks!!

Tim

I keep a spare intercooler hose and fuel filter kit (and lower bowl) with me. A full set of tools when out of town/pulling the fifth wheel.

I am going to follow this maintenance schedule.

5k oil changes
15k fuel/air filter
60k coolant, trans, diffs, xfer case, brake fluid
Brakes as needed

I'm at just about 41k now, getting ready to put on my first set of tires. Replacing the stock Michelins with the Goodyear Duratrac.

Truck has been solid thus far, only issue is blowing the CAC tube at 35k miles.... ridiculous if you ask me, but I do live in extreme heat and pull/load the truck heavy at times.

I don't travel anywhere without a code reader/reset tool. I think it's wise to keep one in your truck. Couple months ago I had an exhaust temp sensor fail, retrieved code, replaced the right one with the spare I had in the glove box. 15 minute ordeal.

Definitely a code reader too. I have carried one in my door for so long (across multiple vehicles), I assumed it was normal for everyone to have one. LOL
