I broke my distribution block on my rear axle while in California. Instead of replacing it like a sane person would, I threw a set of Vise-Grips on the rubber line connecting the hard line at the frame to the rear axle and just relied on my front brakes. I tried to order a d-block from the local Jeep dealership, but they wouldn't have one for me for a week and I was getting ready to move back to Kansas. I drove ALL THE WAY FROM REDONDO BEACH, CA to NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS towing a motorcycle on a 5x8 trailer, Jeep loaded to the GILLS with my stuff, all on front brakes. One of my dumber moves, granted, but made it back to Kansas alive and only ran a few people off the road along the way. God Bless Vise-Grips!!
