    It seems like when you fix or upgrade one thing, one or more things break right after that. I know this is a money pit but snitz! give me a break here I can only chase so many problems down at one time or afford so many at once! I got my new drive shafts today, and now I have to order new rear springs cause I managed to crack one in the pack and these have seen better days in Washington,time to replace them anyhow. When I finally lifted the rig my motor gave out then my power steering pump went next, It just goes on n on! I built my axles I had to replace the rear housing cause the caps and the housing were wore out.Shoot by the time I finish I should have a brand new rig. I am even replacing the entire wire harness this summer. Hmmmmmmm /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    I put a 4 inch lift a week ago (after a fight w/ some rusted eye bolts/ frozen brake line fittings), and this week my alternator/ charging system is givin' me HELL!!!. Almost makes me wish I would have left it stock. ALMOST /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
