Oops made better.

So I was cruising through the desert at about 40 mph minding my own business when a 3ft ledge popped up around a bend before I had time to do.. really anything but pucker my ***. The landing was less than graceful but all that happened was a busted motor mount. Not that huge of a deal. I was out in the middle of the night and had my buddy pick me up and take me home because there wasn't a light to be had way out there and I wanted to deal with it later. So I had another friend take me out the next day. We got stuck about half way out and at this point I was determined to get un stuck to get my buddies ride out too. We walked out to the jeep, and got a better feel on how bad it was. after trying to start and limp it in any direction I was feeling pretty defeated by the whole thing until I found trusty Mr. bottle jack in the back! I removed the air box and stuffed in the jack, put the block back where it belongs and drove it out with no filter but we survived. Made the pull to get truck #2 out and along we went!
