    Ah gotcha.

    Eh nothing wrong with killing it, all part of the manual game. More challenging = more fun in my book. I work the clutch a lot more then you..was nice with my new clutch though. Took the abuse very well...especially since your not suppose to "abuse" it in the first 750 miles :anonymous: lol whoops.

    My clutch is holding strong, and the last thing i wanted to do was lose it on the trip. But then i started thinking oh hey, i beat the shit out of my starter now that i am all alone in bumfuck desert outside Moab. Left that thing running constantly there. only shut it off once, even during my flat repair :anonymous:

    Nothing, but when your in the middle of nowhere with no service, those thoughts sneak in. Not like it is an easy hike out to Moab in the 100+ degree heat. I was pretty far north of Moab. And i saw nobody at all where i went. no problems with the truck besides the drain plug still and that damn A/T has less traction on the street than the old tire.
