Hi-Lift Jack to hold in a broken axle.

I unfortunately had to use this trick this weekend and it actually works. Its best if you have a buddy to help out and hold tension on the front strap while moving. My passenger sat in the passenger seat and just rested a foot on the strap. We made it close to 15 miles appx on this repair and even through obstacles and rock gardens. Adding a little lube such as gear oil to the outside of the tire every once and a while even saved the tire and jack parts. Just a bit of paint rubber off the jack in the end!
