new presents are on the way!!

well for those of you that know me i bought mikes (sonic04edge) truck a 95 reg cab 2.3 manual.....im goin to get another thread up soon to reintroduce you folks to it...anywho ive done some work to it already...ac compressor, dryer/reciever, new radiator, hoses, belt, tranny mount, just got on advance auto and ordered new rotors and thermo quite wagner pads, motor mounts, vapor canister, motorcraft fuel filter, motorcraft plugs and wires, timing belt, front crank seal set, rear main seal, and goin to ford in the morn to get new DPFE sensor and hose....also plan on puttin all this in next weekend along with my new 373's to help the 2.3 turn my 16" 245/75 FX4 wheels and tires over...the cool thing about advance was that they're runnin a 20% off promo if you order online...my total was $433.?? and final total came out to $367.21.. i know some may not like advance but it was perfect for me because im just lookin to keep truck in good shape and operating properly without having to spend a ton on an older truck.

x2, I got a $30 off $75 purchase the other day, can't beat that. Be careful about doing the pick up in the store though. For some reason the stupid moron working the counter had a huge issue with figuring out my order even though I did it all online and all she had to do was pick out the stuff and let me sign the paper. But no, I had to wait for the f'in manager to get there and he had it done in 5 seconds.

The online-order pick-ups are confusing as ****...we still have to run it through the computer, and if the manager hasn't printed out the pick-up sheet at his desk then we have to wait on that. But if all of the paperwork was done then she was just DA. the hardest are batteries, because most of the time the core charges don't show up in our computer.
