Default Jeep repair saddens me

Just got a call from the shop. Looks like the whole rearend needs enough parts to be called new.

Since I want to get on the Arizona rock this winter, I bit the bullet and had them rebuild it.

What saddens me is that that money could have bought a nice firearm.


I coulda got a RRA LAR PDS 2013 for that kinda money.

Went through the same thing with my F150 last month. I had to replace the cull clutch set, rear main seal, the slave cylender, and the clutch pedal bushing. That money was supposed to go to a Winchester carbine in 30\30 for my wife's christmas present. On top of that, I lost out on close to $800 worth of clean out and haul out jobs during the 2 weeks It was down. I feel your pain.

Some automotive accronyms to help ease your pain?

Ford: Fast only rolling downhill, Frequently overhauled rapidly deprciating, Fix or repair daily

Dodge: Drips oil drops grease everywhere, Dad's old dilapidated garage experiment

Chevrolet: Cracked heads every valve rattles oil leaks everytime, Cheap hardly efficient virtually runs on luck every time, Can hear every valve rattle on long extended trips.

Jeep: Just empty every pocket

Fiat: Fix it again tony

NAPA: Ned another part Al.

Mopar: My old pig ain't running, Mostly over powered and raced, Most operational parts are rebuilt.

Hopefully this atleast got a chuckle out of you. Look at the bright side, with most of the rear end rebuilt your trip shoul be problem free. At the very least, you will have one less thing to worry about. Best of luck.
