Once back to camp we lined a cardboard box with a trash bag to catch any gear oil that might leak out of the axle. Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road Editor Rick Pewe was nearby with his Premier Power Welder-equipped M38A1. We conned Pewe jumps at any chance to stick weld) into firing up the Premier and trying to weld the very broken rear axle back together. This just might work. Or it might not. But it just might.
