    Bula is going under the knife, she and her clutch haven't been getting along too well lately. For some reason, everytime I have er in 4 high and lose traction in reverse, the clutch starts to broil. I was pulling a Cummins out of a snowbank the other day and as soon as I spun the tires in reverse, the guy in the Dodge could smell it! It only does it in reverse and only in 4 high. I took the service guy for a ride, found some glare ice and it still stunk, even with basically 0 traction. The dealership talked to Toyota about it and they had no idea why the clutch is burning. She goes in Wednesday, in lieu of flowers and cards, please send synthetic 5w30 (for Bula) and Coors Original for me.

    You and Bula are in our thoughts and prayers. Lets hope for a speedy recovery. God knows there are more trucks out there that need rescuing.
