Busted on the trail need some help

Ok guy I got a problem . I took the ranger out wheeling tonight and had a large chunk of ice push on my radiator. This caused one of the rad mounting tabs to crack causing a large leak. My question is does any one have a temp fix for this? im thinking jb weld or seal all

how far do you need to drive it?

maybe just loop around the radiator, drive a few miles then let it cool again

id just tow it out though.

i wouldnt listen to me.. its not 100% but if i had a busted radiator (which i hope i cant pull off again because of that piece of 1/4" steel below it)

but if i did, and it was cold outside i would just drive it home... and just watch the temp gauge
