I smashed two fingers in one week. One changing the front diff oil, the other cutting some steel with a miter saw. Not chop saw, miter saw. My ******* was hurting for 2 Weeks and had both nails deformed for months....

Washed it and then waxed it for the first time; looks 100X better than it did before, and got rid of a lot of the fine scratches. Also did some paint touchups, and fixed a few ods and ends.

It works along WITH the pedal. Use either or. When crawling it's easier to use the lever rather than the pedal so as not to "mash" it and cause that surging/jerking motion.

Tranny is slipping more and more, starting to roll backwards if trying to go up an incline after being at a complete stop.



UGH.

Went to the jy to look around. Ended up pulling an alternator out of a 96-98 v8 since they are higher output. But it says remanufactured on it, and I just looked up the part number, and it looks like its a 90 amp
