I said out loud "is that necessary?" Thought about posting it in the comments, but then forgot. I'm finding that's a popular spot to take video/pictures of.

That Tacoma was in over it's head.

Sooo.... the tacoma broke something and then turned around? Shouldn't he have kept going? Making everyone else on the trip focus on him the whole time? Making them late to camp every night?

Yup. This is why spares are important. He should have had u joints or another shaft. The mall crawler wheels, not using his own winch and having his spotter stand behind/to the side was enough to tell me he was in over his head.

Not really a specific person. Its just something we tend to do from time to time.

It was meant to be funny

I thought about excluding xj's. Im quite fond of xj's...maybe my next build in the future. You guys seem to have a bit more sense. :mrgreen: I think there's a lot of jeep weirdos because its so easy to just bolt stuff on and go.

It was funny, I laughed. We've done that too, we had a guy break a rear R&P on Thompson. He camped on the hill, the next morning he removed the ring gear. Took 4 hours to drag him up the hill, and we got to a camp between Summit Lake and East Lake about 1AM. We had to make some ground after all the time that cost us. This was several years ago.

I genuinely like Macgyver'ing broken vehicles, well other people's rigs... :lol: I got off the dusy broken (on the day after we had already turned around) with allot of help welding, a sawed log and Danny's ratchet straps (don't worry buddy, they're safe and sound). Drives me nuts leaving rigs. Unless the part is following them up (like another rig coming late and can grab a spare). I much rather come in late to camp with all my friends and their rigs when possible. Never leave someone behind. No one should ever have to hear that no one is coming back for them over the cb. You know the saying "never leave a man behind".

The best advise I can give, is accept help and listen when your in the broken spot. Most of us have been in that spot, I know I have and I've towned a couple rigs off the trail too. Your friends are there to help you, but everyone would rather be wheeling or at camp drinking. So pull your tools and parts out and make sure your part of the crew wrenching and actually helping, not just watching people rebuild your rig. Also, pull out your chairs and beers in the shade, nothing like some rocky mountains silver bullets to cool people down. ;-)
