Pfffsssttt. That’s the last sound you want to hear coming from under your 4x4 when you are out on the trail. Especially if you are all alone with no spare tire and a good hour’s walk from the trailhead. Thankfully, when one of the tires on Verne’s TJ Wrangler, Shrink Ray, got damaged while he was shooting photos . . . by himself . . . in triple-digit heat . . . in the middle of nowhere, he had the right tools and knowledge to effect a fix and keep on chuggin’ down the trail. So if you wanna be like Verne and not die lonely and thirsty in the wilderness because your tires let you down, go pick up a Power Tank Tire Repair Kit (PN KIT-8133) and have a nice source of onboard air like the ARB Twin Air Compressor (PN CKMTA12), then watch Verne’s great video for some tips on how to plug your torn tires.
