If it gets you home, it can't be that bad.
I think I woulda had a couple spares for the spare though, as that one probably wont last too long.

No kidding. That's when a twin stick transfer case would be useful. You could limp home in front wheel drive.

I'm guilty of having to do this to get off of a trail.

And...d35 c=clip breakage That's what happens when you break a D35c on the trail...the axle comes out...the whole axle with the tire. A spare tire wont help you.

Also if you look close in the video he was smart. Removed the rear d=shaft and used 4wheel to drive.

cause it was not a flat tire,he broke an axle shaft.hence all the rags stuffed in the rear brake shoe area.
