    That's the only way I've ever done it. You got to be a moron to really fuck it up and get hurt.

    If your lbj bolts are crusty I imagine it could get frustrating but otherwise its pretty foolproof.

    Oil change, it involved a hammer because it had been so long since it was changed.
    If we go off of Toyota owners it was 26K miles between oil changes but I know I forgot to log at least one oil change.

    :amen: to this. I have many high quality expensive tools. I've bought almost all of them used. Buy good quality expensive brands BUT buy used and you get helluva deal on them that way and you got tools that work well and last

    250 bucks for just the tool??? Oh I see, they're throwing in a 5.0ah battery and charger? I really don't know but I think those batteries go for like a hundred bucks or something crazy. So if it was 150 bucks for just the tool, that doesn't seem outta line but I really haven't shopped them in quite a few years
