    Hutch congrats on the DIY project. I am sick of taking things to "pro's" and then upon further inspection they did a crappy job for big bucks. That is why I fix everything myself. I even changed a Dodge Cummins 4x4 auto transmission out in my driveway. Neighbors thought I was junking it out. Another major project was completely rebuilding the hydraulic levelers on my motorhome because the dealer said it took too much of their time that they could be helping others in more serious need. That was a greasy mess but worked out perfectly. Haven't been back to the dealer either and their rating is worse now.....
    Addicted to Slayers or Slayr's, have more than one. Probably enjoy the mechanical side of archery the best. I have really enjoyed the articles and the stories on this site. I strive to help others with what little knowledge I have.

    Car guy as well as fixing to save the money. $1400 vs $250 is quite a difference and I put in a power steering pump too. Now I can keep some money for myself!!

    My latest of many projects is my lil bro's '78 Bronco. Pulled the boat anchor,gutless 351M and swapped in a hopped up H.O. 302 EFI from a Lincoln Mark 8 and E4OD trans w a couple munor mods to bolt to the ol cast iron,gear driven NP205 t-case originally bolted to a C6 3spd auto. All new shocks and suspension components and bushings,315-75-16 BFG AT's, rear disc brake swap using 3/4 ton Chevy rear calipers and '95 F150 front rotors. All new heating/cooling system, new electrical system. New shorty headers and dual exhaust to be installed soon then it's on to the interior using the gauge bezel being custom fit into the original '78 dash. Seating and flooring is still being determined since he plans to run it topless in the summer and use it for hunting/work duty as well.

    I hear ya on saving $$$. Last fall had to rebuild the tranny in the wifes Yukon, parts were just under $300 and two days time. Shop rates were $2100, and Summit wanted $1100 for theirs. Just had the injectors & water pump changed in my Duramax last month = $3500. Would have been right at $5000. in the shops in Reno. I use to love working on stuff, not so much anymore. Get too sore crawling around on the cement.
