    Well, it looks like I will come with my Tacoma!

    My asshat of a mechanic screwed up my rear end. needless to say I am not paying him! i disputed the charge.

    i will now proceed to buy a brand new rear!

    What did he do to the rear end to screw it up? Rebuilding rearends is a no brainer and quite easy to do.

    If you're not satisfied with his work, let me know, we may be able to work something out and get you going again but if they messed up, I'd sure as he** make them fix it for nothing.

    For one it's leaking. two it makes a horrible grinding sound when you have the clutch in and turning to the right. It sounds to me like a bearing!

    My guess is someone forgot to install a C clip on the right side and the only thing holding the axle on is the brakes.

    ?? who knows. If he screws it up this time, HE WILL buy me a whole new rear already assembled!

    How was the meet and greet? I was ****ed and didn't want to go. Planted some trees instead to block all my hated neighbors!

    We looked for you at the GRMC meeting. Bart, Randy, Scott and myself all were there. Everyone in their Saleens except Bart, who came "LATE" in his Z06. I guess those cars are just slow! ( sorry Bart, couldn't ressit!) hahaha

    How did I know I would get some crap from George lol.

    I was in the mountains all day carving corners with the Corvette club while trying to avoid the crazies on their crotch rockets.

    What is the saying? Better late than never?

    Both of my arms are scorched (nice sunburn) just from driving. My sunburn and dress shirt are not playing well with each other today!
