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 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

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.
