I remember treerootCO bending his tie/steering rods on the high side of whale rock on chinamans

Gary, Oleg and Robbie used a winch to straighten them out

Lost a mechanical fuel pump on Chinaman's years back and took an extra gas can, duct taped it to the hood and gravity fed the carb. Drove the whole trail.

That's one more reason I always carry Pringles. It was snowing too.

An 80 tow hook bolt has the same thread as a front caliper bolt.

I had a good one a few years ago on PS at the arch. Broken spider gear in rear dif. Took diff cover off. Drove 20 ft with cover off and the broken pieces spit out. Cover back on refill with oil and drove it out with only 1 spider gear.

We fixed Perry's 4Runner's broken steering on Spring Creek one year by duct taping a wrench to the two halves like a splint. I think we used some hose clamps, too.

Actually, it was a steal rod, bailing wire and duct tape. Man, forgot about that repair. Sketchy driving down Saxton Mt like that, but even more sketchy driving on the highway home.....

One of the first times I did Kane Creek we were wheelin' with some of the early Wasatch Cruiser guys. I think it was Darren who had a red 60 and his coil went out just at the bottom of the big climb out from the bottom towards the end of the trail. No spare coils anywhere so we did this. We sent a couple of guys into town to get a coil. In the mean time when a similar vehicle got to the top of the climb we would take his coil and put it into the 60 so Darren could get up the hills. We switched back and forth until almost out when the new coil arrived. Worked pretty good.

It was rebar and I had a hand in that one... LOL
Uh... you had some toe-out issues...

Then there was the time Marco welded your frame back together using my welder (because he is good and I am... not so much) after some Baja-style driving on Wipe Out Hill. It was God speaking to you about your need for a SAS I think.

Same Wipe Out that took out my R&P the prior year, disconnected the flanges and driveshaft and drove back to camp in FWD, put in a borrowed diff from Rock Dog/ Squeaky Toy/ Neil in camp and I was good to go. Discovered I liked 4.88s better too.

I still think welding Cheeseman's front frame back on (it was held on only by the body mounts... ), on Engineer Pass, was classic though. I never needed a welder for trail repairs until I bought one... LOL

Vice Grips are very versatile tool to have along.

Father's Day Run 2010, Kenny's Jeep tore a rear brakeline in the rock garden on Spring Creek and we used two vice grips to clamp off the lines. Hairy ride down Saxon Mountain, but it held up to get us off the trail and home!
