Hell, he was OPEN front and rear. Don't know if many saw but the only tool
he had for lugs was a 12" Cressent wrench. He was in way over his head.
Luckly most of the other competitors were happy to help offering
tools/parts/advice. We got some good pics and video of the event including
the Bronco II that blew the front axel. You can see the parts flying.

Fun event, I'm sure I'll be back next year.
