Was browsing some good fails/fixes last night on youtube/insta and some were pretty awesome.

What does our 1% of the community have to offer?

This is when my front lower Link Bar ripped off on Razorback at Golden Mountain. It actually felt pretty solid getting out of there. LOL.

Ratchet strap holding the broken off link mount back to the chassis in some odd way... Winch rope swung back underneath axle to snatch block back to top of truss on axle.

I did a lot of “trail fixes” while building my rig...
Its not a trail fix if you never go back and redo it. Thats called a permanent fix

Fuel pump died on dads TJ riding in the cove so we took the washer fluid bottle and stuck the hose in the 4.0L throttle body. Put gas in the washer tank and used the pump to purge fuel in. he drove it out the trail like this hitting the wipers to keep it going. was crazy. Pump didnt burn up because most washer fluid is alcohol based so gas was no problem.

Came up on a TJ one time in a bad spot, fuel pump crapped.

I filled a water bottle with fuel and poked a tiny hole in the cap and propped it up over the throttle body. He was able to idle out of the trail and back to camp

In my first rig I used to break on every single trip. Always related to ripping brackets off because of my superior welding skills. I used to carry both of my trailer ratchet straps with me. I could make any link in a suspension system with 2 ratchet straps. ANY!!

I don't have any pics. Would love to look back at them

I once ran into a guy at choco that had broken one of the fittings on top of his LS so he had a huge vacuum leak. I took a stick and trimmed to fit the hole and tapped it in place. No more air leak. I also changed a rear yoke at choco with channel locks, a punch, and a rock.

P, tell me you still have the picture of me smashing your U-joint on your drive shaft back together with a rock on Boat Ramp. CLASSIC trail repair.

The first time or the second time the buggy rejected the front driveshaft on Boatramp that day laughing1 True fact how cheap P is... so that drive shaft was a rear toyota axle shaft as I recall with a 1310 slip sleeved and welded on one end and the splines butted and sleeved on the other end with a second slip to make it ultra skinny since I originally set it up with a junkyard is 2pc shaft and hated the vibes.. it worked minus the " it shoulda been 1350 minimum " . That set up also one time spun the caps so hard at Grayrock at the front pinion, when I got to the top someone said " Hey your front pinion is on fire " got out and no **** , ujoint grease fire :rolf:

We had a guy break his ram mount on Mason jar in Harlan. We came prepared. Mark had to rev the generator to get to get the welder to puddle.
