I can not afford to keep doing this.

Another tire gone. Checked them all with a gauge before leaving this morning. These tires are at least 8 years old I realized. Aged out of service.

That really sucks! Those things are expensive

Somewhere being famous.
The mirror was not broken when I loaded the Jimmy and the ramp was straight.

Half of that would be the service call.
Tires are not more than $5-600.
I pay $400 for mine and they last 250k miles, 4 years with no problems, after that I start having issues so I change them all.
$3500 for 8.
Better than paying $1000 for one and waiting on the side of the road.
I also used to drive to them with the flat, never called for road service

No driving either of these. Front had the casing wrapped around the TRE, axle, ABS wire and air line. Dragging on the wheel hard. Had to pull the wheel to get it out and it was 35 miles to the closest tire shop that wasn't open until the next morning.

Rear was 45 miles to the closest shop and had a large flap where I could not get over 15 mph without it beating the crap out of the truck.

Lets get the Carnage thread back on track. Before climbing ‘Chewy’ @Raggedy_Ann noticed he was missing the nut on the front shackle. After further investigation we realized it was also missing the bushing and sleeve. Luckily I had recently thrown a spare in the toolbox. With a long line of golf carts in front of us we had plenty of time to get it fixed without holding up the group.

Figure out why he sheared the power steering pump?
