Hello and welcome!
Don't know what you hit, or how big the hole, but I carry a small 12v compressor and a plug kit to try to avoid that very situation. Amazing what you can do with 8-10 plugs.... Wasn't pretty, but it got me back to the truck.

Where are you in Mt? I'm at Frenchtown. Picking up a 21 Trail in a couple wks. Randall
Billings. We were just out in the Pipestone area the last 4 days. Our first time there, found some pretty interesting trails.

any tips or suggestions to share from your first tire change experience?
If you haven't already, take the time to remove and grease/anti-seize all the lug nuts/studs and retorque. I torqued to 80 after lubrication, I think the dry spec is 88. I have a small Tusk Y-handle lug wrench that I carry in my tool kit. It doesn't give much leverage. luckily I tried it before I needed it, it wouldn't budge any of the lug nuts. They are very squeaky tight and sticky...for lack of a better term. It took a breaker bar to loosen them. After lube my small Y-wrench worked fine. Also I have a Tusk 2 ton scissor jack. It was very difficult to lift the KRX with it, took all I had and I'm not a 98 lbs weakling! LOL! . Again it needed lubrication, but of course this collects dirt like crazy! I lubed all the hinge joints and the screw, works much better. But now I have to clean it and re-lube after every few days or I'm afraid all the dirt would bind it up too.
