    So spend the money to get the timing belt and water pump replaced. The rest is DIY.

    I'd be down for another run.

    I need to do something about my transmission cooler. It either isn't working or isn't big enough to handle this new Trans. With just a couple stop lights the Temps are getting up to 220 degrees in this hot weather.

    Doesn't matter. You put a truck in the mud once and you need to expect these things to happen. You get a little dirt or grit in a u joint from putting it in the mud and it's life service life goes to shit exponentially faster, same goes for the timing belt. Got crap in there and wore it out faster. Gotta pay to play Bubba. Want that truck to last 300k and never do any maintenance? Baby it.
