    soo, i pull into work. the truck has been driving great all day. i put it in reverse and it barely moves. i figured it was a lag so i goosed it and it was still moving slow. i put it in drive and it doesnt move. so the transmission is gone. i almost cried seeing it gettin put on the trailer. :(

    I have a factory 1996 clutch with like 24x,xxx miles on it that's calling your name! I'm dragging this out way too long. :( Barely 12 hours a week at work can't buy a clutch that fast.

    The work Gods need to shine their light. haha


    Sorry to hear about your trans, that's never a fun feeling. My old Ford tried that with me, but I was about nine miles in the woods with no tow strap. :( Life sucked for about 12 hours....

    Now that's the damn truth there. I'd do roofing again just to make some $$$$. :(

    Bills are beating me down too bro, hopefully you can get it worked out. Ain't no fun being broke all the time, eh? haha I couldn't be a bum, I feel bad having someone buy me a soda.

    It only hurts the first time. You get used to it after awhile.
