    Fixin to Road Trip from Dallas to Beaver Lake near Rodgers Ark to see if there are any fish wanting to be caught.

    I was doing the usual check list with fluids and visual, etc. Thinking I've only got about 12k on the ujoints since I changed them right after I did the new motor. Then I got to thinking about it when I went to bed and realized it's been 2 years. So I changed them out before work this morning. The front was just fine, but the rear had 1 semi dry cup. I prefer the non greasable type.

    So... mild paranoia is a good thing sometimes. It's also cheaper to catch things Before they break.

    Just glad I caught it...I coulda been pulling my boat thru Okielahomo with a driveshaft dismantling itself at 70mph.
