Germany is cool, but it sucks for trucks

    Where the Army tells me to!
    I think I always took it for granted to have a parts store right across the street, cause now I have to wait almost two weeks for even the smallest parts, like wheel bearing seals. I've been kicked out of two tire shops so far cause they said it would take almost 500g of sticky weights to balance my new 35" bfg m/t's, they tell me that my 4" lift is to high to do my alignment, a gas tank is to big to ship in the mail, and would cost as much as the gas tank to ship it by other means, oh yeah and the super salt they put on the roads is about to cause my tailgate to fall off, does any one know what the rectangle part that attaches the tailgate hinge to the truck is? I need two new ones. I can't wait to get back to the states:usaflag:
    sorry for the ranting.

    Shouldn't cost you anymore to get a tank in the mail there than it does in the states, (assuming APO/FPO) and I know I didn't pay any outrageous price when I had mine shipped to me.:confused:

    Can't you just go to the auto hobby shop to balance your tires? I remember some other companies trying to make me pay more for shipping to an APO, so I had to call and tell them they only have to pay to get it to San Fransisco, since that's where the APO is.
