Still a good deal.

I don't think I'm gonna make it home this weekend, so the rack may have to wait a bit. I'll definitely pull it off when I do the lift, though.

The money wasn't a problem at all. Just got too much stuff going on, and I'd rather have the 5.9 all done (ball joints, poly sway bar bushings, clear corners, undercoat, bored TB, blah blah) all set before I dig into the Laredo.
