    Dave’s right about the time. But I’d also ask how bad the oil leak is? A leak is not usually a critical item as long as you stay on top of it. Also the CV Boots aren’t that critical either, especially if you don’t have the time to go wheeling.

    Yeah thats what they were saying. They have to lower the diff and crank shaft to get up there.
    PA school is going well. I'm in clinicals now. Started in Family Practice last week. Got to suture on my second day which was awesome. We do a colonoscopy every morning and we've had a few vasectomies which are not my favorite. Seems relatively uncomfortable but they're hopped up on VerSed so they don't remember anything.


    From what I understand the boots on both CV axles are torn. From what I've been reading it doesn't seem like an overly difficult job. The quote has $381 for parts and $653 for labor which seemed high to me. I'm not particularly adept mechanically but I think one of my buddies has a bit of experience and I was going to run that part of the deal by him.

    True. Again since I don't have much time on my hands and the time I do have I would prefer to spend hunting and fishing. I'm trying to only cook meat from animals I've killed this year (I say cook because I will eat out and if someone cooks something for me I'm not going to refuse it) and that takes quite a bit of the minimal time I have. I'm almost inclined to just pay it and move on with my life. The downside is that all of my money is loan money so I'll be paying back with interest.

    At this point thinking either infectious disease or wound care. I LOVE suturing but don't care for the surgery lifestyle. From what I've heard working an outpatient surgery center could be a good fit and have more normal hours.

    They weren't sure how bad it was. I haven't been seeing any oil under the truck so I'm thinking its relatively slow. They've been taking care of my truck for the last year and hadn't seen it before so its pretty new. They also acknowledged that neither of these things are like critical to have done now so I don't feel like they're pressuring me into anything.

    I think I'd keep a bottle of oil behind the rear seat and check it every couple of days. When it gets half qt down, I'd top it off. For the CV's if the tears are only minor. I'd try to clean any excess grease off the outside then put some Gorilla tape over the hole. That'd only be a temporary fix, but I that should hold for a little while. If they are completely ripped open then you should probably replace them sooner than later. The Shops repair cost for the CV does sound a little high. Though if you haven't pulled a CV before it'd likely be a days labor for you to self-repair. There are some good videos on Youtube on how to replace the boots. Toyota sells a repair kit with all of the parts you need (boots, grease, clamps).

    As much as I can til' my wife blocks my Amazon account...
    Has anyone tried to polish/buff their windshield in an attempt to remove fine scratches? I assume from mud on windshield wipers causing very light scratches that you can’t feel.

    Yeah that's what I meant.

    Actually, I used a clay bar on mine this past summer. Made a difference for sure! Then RainX after the clay and a wash.

    This was my attempt at removal of a lot of the scratches from my short wheeling experiences. I washed the truck, clay bar the entire thing (even the light lenses), wash, buff, wash, wax. Fuck old school Turtle Wax, lasted this summer maybe 3 washes. Stuff used to be good.

    When I do this again: wash, buff, wash, clay, wash, something other than Turtle Wax.

    I think Ajax and steel wool is what I've heard for removed hard water spots. Might be something to do some googling on

    Well that didn't take long. Welcome to Nashville.

    Rule #1 for me especially when on my motorcycle is always assume everyone is trying to wreck into you and make a game plan for avoiding it

    Looks like a bent tie rod to me, easy to replace. Not sure about the control arms... looks like you got sideswiped?
