Do you want to ford the river?

We were sailing down the Rio Grande after previously going from hill climbs and trail riding near 'The Wall'. During some impromptu donuts in the river, the silver FJ knocked a tire bead off the front passenger rim. I happened to have a compressor in the black FJ, and he had some straps and grease.

The FJ's built in power invertor powered the compressor, while we worked the bead back into place. The hi-lift wouldn't work with the silver fj (no rock rails or steel bumpers), but the factory FJ jack and a plastic lid got the rim off the ground.

20-30 minutes later (slow home depot compressor) we were back on the river and crawled out of the banks next to border patrol before dark.
