lol at Map ..... are we even on a Map???

I still have Oil sitting in the Garage from 2 years ago....when Mike changed the Oil on the Car. He can change it when he gets home but I have no use for the Oil.
We went to the Truck place there in Gladwin, bought my Shocks from them and gave it a Oil change too. Then went too Schwaffers and they did a OK job but I am picky and they leaked oil allover my Truck. ( they had Problems getting the Filter off)

But anyway...... thought I would ask...

I will post here..no big deal...I had them weld some spring perches on an axle housing for my Toyota...I was trying to get it ready for a trip and had a list way too long to get to it....had a friend pick it up for me(they charged me 150.00 IIRC)....the welds were absolutely horrible(my Step-son at 10yo at the time could lay a better bead) and they were about 1.5" off the measurement and about 1" off being centered on the axle....I ended up grinding them off and welding them myself during an all-nighter to get the truck ready. I have also heard many stories in town about there service being not up to par and over priced...this was about 5 yrs ago so it may have changed...but that was enough for me
I no longer go to Myers for Tires in Gladwin also...battery warranty and a ***** of a manager

Wow, yes that would be enough for me not to go there again. Thanks for heads up.
We just had the Oil change done being we just picked up my Shocks, so figured might as well just change the Oil since were there .
But last oilchange was done with Swaffers who left a HUGE Mess of Oil allover the bottom of my truck..so I had lots of Oil on my Garage Floor, I thought I was leaking oil !!

We looked at Rims and Tires last night online lol......I could really get myself in Trouble
