Well my alternator took a dump once I hit the road (120 miles from home). I thought I could make it home on just the battery...but it did not happen. I was down to about 10 volts on the battery when I decided to pull over and try to find a place I could get a battery, but when I pulled in the parking and looked under my truck, the transfer case was pissing ATF everywhere; not a good thing (40 miles from home. I made a phone call home and my cousin told me to find someone to flatbed me home first before he hooked up to the trailer to come get me, two seconds later a guy pulls up with a flatbed and asks if I need a tow; DITTO! The guy loads me up, stops at the quicky mart gets himself a little snack, because he is a little guy pushing 400pds and the snack was a 12" sandwich, 2 12" slim jims, and a fruit salad, but he complained that he was still hungry. Well I made it home in one piece and would do it again. BTW-this guy stunk, p-u! here is a pick of my being loaded on the flatbed.
