Personally I would carry the plug kit and compressor, PLUS 2 spares for the truck or whatever you are taking.
A plug kit will do you no good if a rock takes out a sidewall.

This is all good info. Thanks guys!

I was googling around and found this which really backs up what you guys have been saying.

Dalton Highway, otherwise known as the Haul Road

It just makes me want to pack up and leave right now! Sadly the funds need a little more padding but this is one road I will travel in the next few years

With all that said...I've driven it round trip 3x and have NEVER had a flat. :-D

I've been looking at a lot of pictures of the road, and I'd feel pretty comfortable with one good spare and some tools if I could drive at my own pace.

That being said, I'll probably end up erring on the side of caution when I do it
