Tire repair kit shelf life

At what point do you all replace the vulcanized plugs, etc. that we throw in the back of our jeeps and haven't used for the last couple years?

If there is a tube of cement with them....THAT is the weak link. The plugs should be good ad infinitum as long as they do not dry rot.

Check on your glue... it both the SEALANT and the LUBRICANT to get the plug through the puncture.
