That reminds me, I need to pick up some blinker fluid.
People amaze me. I went to high school with a bunch of stuck up preppy kids who knew nothing about cars, but when they truned 16 their parents got them "cool looking" but poorly built 4 wheeling rigs. Namely lifted jeeps with 4 cylinders, that couldnt drive their way out of a wet paper bag. They always wondered why i never went wheeling with them at the local mud holes. I told them i stick to the rocks cause mud is too much of a pain in the ass, but they just though my k5 sucked offroad. Funny thing, whenever they got stuck bad, i somehow always got a recovery phone call. And when their u-joints and wheel bearings would go bad from the mud, i would offer to do the labor for them for real cheap, but they would instead spend hundreds so that a "professional mechanic" in a shop could do it right. I WOULD NEVER trust my truck with a mechanic unless i was right there watching. Maybe thats why my truck has never been to a "mechanic."
They would ohh and ahh over eachothers new body lift, or high performance air filter upgrade. When they asked me what my truck had, trying to explain shackle flips, lower gears, inboard shock setups, axle swaps, and lockers was like french to them. They would always tell me, and i quote on this one, "yeah, im going to get some lockers installed today." Me-"what kind?" them-"probably some warn ones with the metal dial." me-"you mean locking hubs" them-"huh?" The concept of open and locked differentials is the hardest part for them to grasp.
Sorry, rant off.....
