Bill and some of the other guys from NORAC were AWESOME. I cannot thank them enough for all the help they provided. I'm not on Facebook, but all of that contact initially happened through Instagram, which helped me a lot.One thing of note, that everyone should learn, despite how horrible Facebook is, it's also a great source for finding local 4wd groups or vehicle specific groups should you have a problem in that area. Spot on contacting the NORAC people here in Colorado and Bill. There are a couple of 4wd shops in Ouray, but, being the time of year you were there, it can be difficult to get ahold of some of them. Luckily you were able to get towed into Montrose, there's a couple shops there as well as a Nissan dealer.
Yeah, it was mostly unfortunate timing more than anything. Had it happened a few days earlier we likely could have salvaged our original trip plans. Thankfully the shop in Montrose did a good job and were very amicable when they knew my position. Great group of guys. It all worked out for the best in the end.
