    I was a bit concerned since I thought you'd just gotten a new guit.

    Nah, still luv that one. But always looking at SOMETHING, sometimes I get it. As long as it doesn't become hoarding (none of my business if it does), GAS is fun.

    I have the next three things I'm buying planned out. I'm like a GAS chessmaster.

    There is no cure, just denial.

    No money stops you for awhile. Death stops you forever.

    Why all the negative 'tudes towards GAS ??

    GAS is a great feeling as long as its' not left unchecked.

    The anticipation
    The pre-purchase testing and comparing
    ALMOST that feeling you had as a kid on Christmas Eve the day/week before the purchase
    OR
    The excitement of that spontaneous purchase . BAM !

    GAS left unchecked . . . . .


    well . . . . .


    Let's not go down that rabbit hole.

    Nah, just temporarily on hold due to my truck deciding it needed an expensive repair.

    Ok, might be a longer temp hold as I think I need to do everything I can toward saving a bigger down payment for a new truck. It's 15 and it's going to be causing me problems now.

    Lol, been there. Just paid $2100 to get mine fixed after a broken timing belt.

    I've found that my cure for GAS is a wife that says NO. :laugh2:

    $2500 rebuilding the rear differential. Seal must have started leaking but it was only leaking when the crankshaft was turning it so I didn't know until it started making whining and screeching sounds. That entire week it was sitting on a snow covered driveway and not a dot of gear oil.

    I'm going to be retroactive though as soon as it gets warmer and replace them on my front diff and the transfer case.

    I also first though it was the serpentine belt as it was old and not looking so good. So that got replaced, but wasn't the problem. I felt kind of stupid though that I thought the sounds were coming from the front instead of the back, but I did.

    From the drivers seat it can be very difficult to tell where noises are coming from.
