oh, one other thing, a large good solid tire wrench is invaluable - one of those 4 pronged cross shaped ones - make sure the one you pick fits your vehicle. Why? Nothing worse than trying to bust the lug nuts on the side of the road when the over zealous person at the tire store/mfg. put the lugs on too tight with the impact wrench. The little thing that generally comes with vehicles is worthless. I also carry a pipe to put over the wrench for leverage at times.
It wouldn't hurt to lower/reinstall your spare just to make sure you can do it, and to make sure nothing is frozen or stuck. You wouldn't want to be on a backroad in the middle of nowhere and find out you are unable to lower your spare on the Toyota.
Best advice on off-road driving is go SLOW. I've seen folks fly over rough roads doing all kinds of damage to their vehicle when simply crawling over the bad spots will save you from headaches later.
Has anybody got a specific recommendation for an air compressor?
Go with the door pressure not the dealer over-inflation...43 psi is way too high. In any event I wouldn't run them over 35 psi.Al
