I left Spokane at 10am Wednesday morning, equipped with my Crew Cab (leaking rear pinion seal included) and trailer, tools and barely enough money to pay for another truck I bought. By 5:40pm, I arrived in Hubbard, Oregon to drop off a tranny and T-case, and got to meet one of the TTC competitors from this year. At 11:30pm, I arrived in Bandon, Oregon where ther truck I was buying was at. I pulled over and parked, not even knowing the truck I was buying was just on the other side of the trees/brush I parked near. Slept in the front seat and got up at 5am, drove around the corner basically, inspected the truck, and bought it. Then, I went back up the Oregon Coastline. Stopped in Lincoln City to visit my aunt who is 90, and cousins. Stopped by Forest Grove to pick up some axles, then proceeded to head towards home. Discovered one reason there is a "Low" gear in SM465 transmissions: Portland freeway traffic. Had a tire (the best one) blow out on the trailer 75 miles out of Spokane, and had to put the bald spare on it. Got home at 3:30am Friday morning. I't's ugly looking, but the drivetrain is beautiful in my eyes.
