A little late now and too far away to help, but I run a 1000 watt power inverter to operate my tools (grinder, sawzall and skillsaw as well as impact gun and crank up jack) with 2 batteries (one is a 4D which is a gas eater unless I hook my electric motor to the front axle for freeway cruising)

Depending on which way you are heading, Jalopy Jungle in Nampa had a few later Wags with front axles under them. As for new parts, any NAPA should be able to get you one, but it'll have to come from the Spokane warehouse so you'll wait a day. Pretty sure somebody here in Boise should have one. If you make it to Boise, I'll offer up a driveway, jack and tools. I would be happy to help you swap it out. PM me

Thanks again everyone! I've done what can be done for now and it's enough to keep moving. I'm gonna have a rotor hub sent to the montrose or grand junction Autozone since it's a days wait no matter where I order from. That way I can get to Ouray Tuesday morning, check in and have a whole helpful mess of FSJers to help with the job and have ALL my lugs and a good rotor for the trails and drive back.

I have my 3kw generator bolted down in the bed and used my grinder to take down where the rotor got smashed so it doesn't rub the pads and heat up. I got a little over 100 miles on it now and I don't have any shimmy-shaking going down he road or even any pulsing when I hit the brakes. I always brag that I'm a freekin' surgeon with a grinder but this has turned out better than I thought. I figured that I'd at least have a little vibration due to the imbalance from the metal worn off the rotor but I guess Money Badger wants to get there as bad as I do!

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.
