Thanks for rubbing it in....

When I realized I needed the truck as a daily driver and couldnt keep destroying it offroad like I was. I'm also getting much better mpg now and I'm currently commuting 70 miles/day. I bought the buggy to beat up, the truck is now a tow pig.

I just bought everything piece by piece off rockauto.com , they have great prices. Once I had all the parts together I hunted Alon down for the install and worked out prices with him. I ended up doubling what I was going to pay once everything was ripped apart because we found some other odds and ends that needed to be replaced as well.
