    So went out last weekend are did some serious fun. Broke my Anti rocker completely off the frame and it looks like i bent both the tie rods and blew out both CV's. Two inch inward pigeon toe on front fires, not sure if its from the rods being bent or the dent on the lower left arm. wish i had had a GoPro to record the stuff i was doing, lol. If i repair the tie rods would this get me by temporarily till i can get the new CV axles ordered and a new anti rocker kit.

    Was attacking Emigrant Road near Chico Hot Springs in Paradise valley Montana, On the way down the mountain i hit a big boulder straight on, it was in the middle of the damn road. Luckily i have a six inch lift just barely missed my bumper. Boulder pushed my anti rocker upwards and busted it off. dragged the boulder like 8-10 feet. which must have put pressure on the tie rods and bent them upwards as well. backed up and went around it, tied the anto rocker bar to the bumper area and gimped it down the rest of the mountain.

    We had a saying in the army: "If you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough". In this case sounds like you're being tough and not whining about how Toyota should fix it. I would stop abusing a 35k truck and be a bit nicer to is till you learn to drive or build it more.
