I am sure those guys will jump in to give better details but it shows what you can do with Duct tape and some shackles.
Randy, man of many talents, was not at work on this trail fix. Credit goes to the inginuity of Farnham and Corbet.

Broken piece of tie rod held together with a d-ring, clamp and Scott Yoders Gorrilla tape. Did not budge the whole way out.
