What would you have done?

I came across this video yesterday (I don't know any of the people and not sure if they are WF members) and noticed the comments say "we ended up with a twisted tie rod, bent steering damper, broken front drive shaft and a tire that blew a beed"

Just curious....how would you have handled the situation differently to avoid the damage?

i would have removed the DS and the steering damper and beat the tie rod as straight as i could , then i would have driven home slowly and ordered new parts. its that simple


life is too short to be taken seriously all the time,,,, go buy a MR.potato head and have some fun.

OMG! I couldn't even finish watching this video. I can't imagine putting my Fifty thru that. NO WAY! I'm the girl who taped off her flares when she waxed her Jeep and was out at 10:30pm a night cleaning the bird poop off her Jeep. That video made me bite off all my nails watching it.

This is an ice breaker:

Your Wrangler.... Is not.

If you're going to be driving through crap like that, you need to bring one of these:
