Anybody have ideas on how to get them down to at least where a tow truck would pick them up?

Any pictures of the break so we can plan a way to get them out if parts aren't available?

If you get a call back and are headed out there I'll pm you my number so we can meet you up there to lend a hand. Would be leaving from North Scottsdale.

Or do you want to meet and head up there anyways. Maybe a highlift handle and a ratchet strap would get them enough to get out to the road for a two truck?

Excuse me, Mr. Senior Moderator, but since you took the time to reply to this thread shouldn't you have also taken the time to move it to the correct section of the forum? :p

Ok.. Willygoat and I talked. We are going to head up there and see if we can help out any or at least make sure the folks get to a place to stay in Crown King if nothing else.

Probably be at the Gas Station on Daisy Mountain Road at 9:45 ish for anyone else wanting to meet us up there. I'll be on Channel 4 also.

We are eating right next to a oriellys so if they call i can hopefully get what they need. I will post if i hear something. That road is pretty busy i dont think they could be there for 3 plus hours and get no help.

Just got off the phone with Brad. He is safe in Anthem. He doesn't want to go back up tonight to do anything. He is getting parts and will return in the morning to fix it.

I stressed if he really wanted to leave it there over night. He said it was near homes and he felt is was safe and ok.

I'm just giving you a hard time. I suspect that if the thread had been posted in the "Low Priority (Help) Rescue Assistance" section to begin with many of the people already in Crown King at the time would have been alerted about the broken TJ. Now it is more than three hours later, and no one is sure if help is still needed or not.

(Note: Just to be clear, my comments are not a criticism of the OP. Kudos to him for taking the time to alert the VJC about the broken Jeep, and kudos to the other members who are now offering to lend assistance.)

Hopefully Lunatic and Willygoat see the latest updates before heading north. Anyone got their number and can call them?

Thanks Roger, we got a call from TRLNGRL and then contacted 67Jeepstergirl/guy. Back home and in the recliners.

There is still a major delay in the EAS. When Dave posted the other day, I didn't get the email until 10:30pm! Others were getting scattered messages as well!

Brad called me just now Wanted to let everyone know that he got the part and went up to get his jeep fixed. He said the road was tough in his truck from all the rain. He was able to fix it and now has it back home. He said he will post up later to say thanks to all who started to head out to help last night.
