Day two started out with a few mechanical problems. The weld Richard did on David's track bar (with only two batteries--ah, what an education I received!) broke somewhere on the trail and had to be re-welded by Andy who rolled in late with his big red long-armed XJ. The real problem was with Richard B's rig, which was slowly eating all the spare axle shafts and steering components in camp due to a weak stock front end, 35's and plenty of lead on the gas pedal! A busted axle and u-joint first thing necessitated a fix with bailing wire and duct tape, and meant he would have to drive the rest of the 'Con in 2WD. Goatman strapped him on the tough spots between Spider and Rubicon Springs.
