I don't know if I'm allowed to hotlink to another forum so I'll just tell you to look for "the wasteland survival guide" on JeepForum...good luck

If it moves and it shouldn't, duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, WD-40.

Last time I went wheeling a guy in our group had a full size bronco with a cummins 4bt on 37's that was pretty bitchin. This was a night run, about 1 am we were on a trail called hogs back in the Tillamook state forest, it has a filter for width restrictions, Here's a crappy video I found of the filter

About half way through his tire got caught on a rock and he snapped a tie rod in half leaving the rig with no steering. Someone had a high lift jack handle and cut a piece off, we got the 2 broken pieces in the handle and used ratchet straps to keep it together, it didn't work to well and kept coming apart. About 4 am we had it off the trail and on a trailer, good times

That's a great trail carnage fix! Thanks for sharing! Tie rod snaps, hi lift handle!

My buddy's 2010 JKUR had the shift cable for the T/Case come loose in Anza Borrego leaving him in 2wd. He somehow managed to get to the top of Diablo Dropoff and we parked it on a rock and literally used Bailing wire to put the end back on the lever. Worked for the rest of the week.
