    Well, the truck goes in to the shop on Thursday. I now have a full notebook sheet filled with items to be repaired/replaced.

    Dropping it of a couple days before the truck goes in so they have time to get the necessary parts ordered. Then the only thing to do is wait for the bill…..

    Sounds like you have a decent amount of work to get done , hopefully it’s not going to cost you an 💪 and 🦵 lol

    I have been debating changing my SUV , but decided to hold off until next year , that being said , I just spent 800 bucks for snow tires 🤷‍♂️ oh well

    I stopped at the shop Tuesday to drop off my list of things to be done in case they needed to order parts. Girl just laughed and said “No way we can get all this done in one day”.
    So it looks like this will be a multi-visit situation. 🙂

    Well that kinda sucks. I thought the way you were talking it would be in the shop for awhile.

    Wow sounds like a lot of work to do , that’s one thing I have a hard time with , finding time to bring in the car /truck and not loosing time off work or having to either rent a car or find other means of transportation
    Good luck with the truck , hopefully it’s not too expensive

    Bad news right there. Hope it all gets done eventually.

    Only 3 phone calls from the shop today. Needed two more parts than what I took them for the front suspension.
    Then they found a hole in the transfer case (which I guess is common for that year/transmission.
    Last call was to tell me that when taking apart the transfer case to put the new part on — the transfer case is pretty much toast.
    So… we’ll see how things go from here.

    Not necessarily new, but good for another 80-100K and I’ll be happy with that.

    Yes, new transfer case will be going in. Truck is a 2004 Chevy 2500HD. Haven’t got the final as far as cost, told them to ‘just put it on my tab’.
    The shop I have it at is booked out through the end of November, but said they would call me if they have any cancellations. Figure another 2 or 3 appointments and everything will be taken care of.

    You are a lot more trusting of Auto shops then I am. I’ve found them to be as bad as contractors.

    All these repairs sound expensive. Sometimes though if you know the history of the vehicle, getting it fixed is better than taking on new debt.

    I have had my truck to this shop before and they treated my more than squarely. Benefits of a small town shop – if your name is not good, you don’t last long.

    Definitely agree. I have had the truck for about 7 years now and it has not let me down. Figure these repairs will get me a lot more miles out of the truck.

    Well sounds like you have and had good experiences with them , it’s hard to find a reputable mechanic and or garage , if you have one keep it ,
    I’m sure once it’s all fixed up , it will give you a few more good years of service.

    That is the way to look at it. Either new truck payments or invest in lower maintenance costs.

    Very true Bill , very true , I like not having any car payments , and it’s actually not that bad doing repairs
