One of the guys on the Thing forum was saying that his Defender was the far superior off-road machine. Perhaps he was right?

Darn. I couldn't get it to embed in the page. Maybe someone else can do it for me.

Thanks, and enjoy!

So the trailing arm broke, I thought the pivot bolt came out at the beginning. How far did you guys have to tow it?

We were only able to tow it about 150 yards. Get this: We broke down in the middle of the desert, but were only about eight miles from a VW junkyard! One of our guys found the owner, and he sold us a bug trailing arm and another guy had a Type 4 CV. We replaced it all right there in the dirt. It was great teamwork, and lots of laughs (as you can tell from the video).

Looks like the makings of a trophy for the next person who brakes the biggest part Smile and I sure am glad I have boxed in arms.

I would have had you covered if you broke down while we were still with the main group! That's a 10 minute fix and I had a sleeve on board we could have used to strengthen it and make it better than stock!

Total bummer.
