I'll be on AIM most of the day if anybody wants to talk, seeing that my truck is at the mechanic's.

WOW you get a late spring break. Lol I know what you're doin'!

Yeah...well my power steering pump has been leakin' for a while and it's been gettin' worse, so I decided it was time to fix it. Pulled the old pump out Friday night. Went out Saturday, installed the new one, got everything on, couldn't get the pulley to attach all the way, it kept strippin' bolts. So I'm like damn. I call the mechanic (really nice guy, ran into a horrible problem with my mom's Silverado, kept mis-firing on 7, kicked his rear for 2 weeks all together, three trips out there, he'd get the CEL to go off and it to run fine, then it'd start up again, ended up completely tearing the block down to replace the head gasket, that fixed it. He was just so glad it was fixed he charged us nothing but parts.), he says bring my Ranger out there, he's got a tool that is better than the peice of crap they give you to re-install the pulley with. So I'm like aight. I start the truck up and the NEW pump starts leaking! So I'm like oh you peice of crap. Pulled both hoses, checked all the o-rings, seals, everything. It keeps doin' it.
So my gf's dad brings over a vehicle moving trailer thing, we put it on that and took it out there. It was really amusing, as my Ranger got all the weight on the trailer it picked up the back of the van he was pulling it with. Apparently my gf's dad would rather pull it with a minivan than my dad's truck, whatever. If his rear suspension gets jacked up, it's his own fault.

Lol yeah...we're in winter. I went out with my friend Michael yesterday. We're sittin' at a light on the highway, with all the windows and the top down in his Chrysler, radio cranked up, sunglasses and shorts on, I look over at the sign in front of the bank that says the temperature and current time, it flashes between 2:30 and 93*.

Love those Texas winters...lol.

Everything's got its pro's and con's. I would love to be in texas working on my truck right now in 90 degree weather. But there's also nothing better than fishtailing around every corner and doing doughnuts in parking lots and not ruining your tires one bit. Rangerpilot, have you ever seen snow first hand?
