    If you're on the trail, who brings that many tools? I live a long way from anything in Nevada. There is no time for this shop style fix if you are broken down in the desert heat. I find a tree or preferably an old mining rail and bend the tie rod back to where it works enough to get it home. Had to do this a lot with my 1948 Jeep in Alaska. Don't see it being any different with the Pioneer.

    @JACKAL knows what he is talking about. It was his tie rod that inspired the original post. And no, I did not stop to take pictures at the time, it was freezing cold, the trails where froze over and I just wanted to get warm, so I posed the pictures after the fact.

    I guess I must be easy on my equipment. I travel on trails and hillsides that would scare a billy goat, but I have never been where I would bend a tie rod. My Pioneer is like an old Jeep. Slow, dependable, and not too comfortable. I'll just plod along. Just like my 1984 Big Red 3 wheeler I finally sold to buy the Pioneer, along with my like new 1993, 1994, and 1996 Fourtrax. They still had factory tires! You guys go ahead and tear up your rigs. I'll be the old guy bringing up the rear.

    1800 miles on a 700 and 1200 on my 100, MOST of those are fought terrain. I made my first personal trailside repair other than a plug in the factory bighorns when I bent my first one a few weeks ago, it was one of those “I know I screwed up” moments. I am generally pretty easy on my machine but the OS moment is going to happen sooner or later to everyone no on is perfect.

    Upside is if you have spare parts you can charge @JTW a premium and pay for your trip when he runs out of spares halfway through a weekend.
