Ahh why cant i get a #!&$ing break

So I went to replace a bolt I used for my lower control arm with a normal lca bolt, once I got the grade 5 bolt I was replacing out I had to push the axle forward no biggie got the trust hi lift and wedges it between bumper and rear track bar mount since that's the only place that won't hit the brake line. Get the right bolt in and go to back the lift off and as it gets one click back it slides right down on my brake line... Great. Well I don't see any fluid leaking out so I think I'm in the clear and get under to tighten the bolt, all is well until I feel something drip onto me sure enough my damn line cracked. I think either the jeep gods cursed me or my jeep is pissed at me. This is bs, and I go into the field tomorrow so the wife is stuck without a vehicle till I get back and fix it. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Only 4 days, I'm debating in having her bring it into a shop. Tomorrow I don't like the idea of her being stranded if something happened. If she goes in early and takes back roads and goes slow she should be fine with just the ebrake

Well, we could put it in the garage with the doors closed and a couple bunches of sage. Let it cook then bury it down in the gulch under fresh earth for a couple days. Should come out pretty clean.

I tempted to do the same to you but I have a feeling that you would be just a little sketchy about being buried in fresh earth for a couple days...

Perhaps the sage would be sufficient, although when the guys in the guard shack get a whiff of you and the jeep you are going to be in for a drug test so fast your head will spin. Basically you'll both smell like you've been to a grateful dead concert...

Well, if you decide to do anything quite that hairbrained please let me know. I can at least follow her or tow the jeep...

Well, I certainly can't disagree. And to hell with the guards, I'm sticking you and the jeep in the garage with at least three bundles of sage...
