What a day it was ... phew!
I gotta thank all you guys there for your patience waiting in the heat while I got my carnage fixed.
And huge thanks to Rick :thumbup: for figuring out that the loose part had an O-ring so it needed to be punched in past the O-ring before the threads would meet the because I was trying my darnest but it wouldn't screw back in.
And doing the trail repair under Chris' awning was heavenly!
And thanks to David, Amber, Stacy, Nadia and everyone else who held the umbrella, the flashlight, passed tools, searched among the strewn out sockets and nuts lol
You guys rock, and Rick saved the day!

The part that came loose was this one here in the diagram (the inner tie-rod attaches to it). Somehow that part had unscrewed over time. I have no idea how and for how long it had been. Rick and I are guessing that it had unscrewed to the last couple threads and finally pulled loose on the 2N06X rock garden. As I climbed a rock there, the steering wheel swiftly swung right. When I changed my rotor and brake pads few weeks ago, I did tug on the tie-rods and there was no play. It didn't occur to me to check that part of the (13 year old) steering rack. Live and learn lol. And I got an alignment couple months ago, but he didn't catch anything wrong there either. New steering rack is my next project woohoo :sad: :lol: . Oh and, note to self: carry more than one bottle of steering fluid. I forgot that I had used up some of the only bottle of steering fluid I carry on someone's trail repair a few years ago. But I learned from Chris that in a bind, I could drain some ATF to use for the steering.

Awesome time! My skids and sliders took a hell of a beating, but it was all worth it.
