Just wanted a shoulder to cry on and a sympathetic ear. Took my rig in for some front end repair and another starter rebuild. Got a call from Christo there is metal in the front diff fluid and rear drive shaft is out of phase??? Joes' removing the front dif and checking the ARB to see?? Great:thumb: :lmao::(

So the good news is my pionion bearing has died but without any damage to the R&P. Sweet, Sort of...Rear driveshaft needs new u-joints and a rebalance. Front pass side lower ball joint is toast. The DS was replaced just before Moab So I expecting this one. All that in addition to what I actually took it in for. Starter and steering linkage.

180,000 on the clock. Something's gonna need replaceing. Nothing "Broke" parts just showing their age. I have the sense to not wait until I'm broken down by the side of the road. Got the truck back today. Couldn't be happier. Light wheeling at Sand Dunes this weekend, Road trip to Minnesota for the State Fair next weekend. Ouray the following.

Thanks Christo, Joe, Ben and Crew. Every time I take my truck in I'm more impressed with the value and quality of service. Invoice was 35% less than I expected.
