Trail Axle Repair trick

I read this awhile back in Peterson's. Keep a freezer bag with your tools. If a axle breaks and the diff has to be removed, use the freezer bag to keep the gear lube in. Once the axle has been swapped out, place the freezer bag into the diff and put the cover back on.

Cycle the axle several times and that should bust the bag open and then you're good to go.

I thought that was pretty smart to, although wouldnt it be a good idea to carry a small supply of gear oil? Maybe in a PVC attached to one of the front or rear downtubes ont the rollbar. I think that I am going to male a couple small PVC containers for tool rolls and stuff. I hate listening to everything bounce in the back of my Jeep.
