I made the decision to tie up the front subframe with a strap and stick to the asphalt for the day. I had to get this sorted.

Being an asphalt diversion day from Baymak to YuzhnoUralsk, we didnt get too many pics. Just this one from a fuel station along the way.
Any pics of the crack or repair job? I always love to see trail side fixes, this way I have some reference material in my head for when the same thing happens to me.
