I think every one on this forum is impressed by the Waggy. You have put time and effort into your rig, and its cool as hell.

Had someone break into my corolla today. Busted out a window to steal my IPod shuffle. Hell I would have just given it to them rather then have the window smashed. Had to be a kid though, they didn't steal any of the tools I had in it. Then again tools are only useful to those that work.

****ty man.

Who goes through the effort of breaking a window to get a shuffle? It's not like a laptop or iPad or anything.

Aren't those shuffles only like $50 new?


I never leave anything out just for that reason. Esp when I have the soft top on.


Hopefully you will have the waggy back by the weekend Marn and it will all be worth it. Hopefully it will just end up being something stupid and this will all be a lesson learned. After all didn't you rebuild the trans by yourself too?

Lamont knows where it is, is impressed with it & has a tow truck with access to a relatively unlit remote low traffic location. Hmmm.. Sketchy.

:LOL: she'll be fine my friend, Larry'll take good care of her

I rebuilt the trans but t didn't work out. It was having intermittent problems. Took the shop 2 weeks to find the issue.

Wasn't it like a bent shim or something stupid like that?

Man, if anyone wanted to get into racing, this is a SMOKING deal!!! The damn truck has $6000 in shocks alone on it and he's only asking $9300. Granted, it's a heck of a drive to buy it though. You'd be legal to race against us and in class 7S also which actually is where I started out back in about '01.

one of the lip seals was bad and they couldnt figure it out until they took it apart. It pressure tested fine hot and cold.

Also, one of the clutches was slightly bent, to the point where i couldnt tell until they pointed it out to me.

anyway, hour and 20 minutes after the shop opened i got a call saying it stops good now, and they want me to come test it to make sure it feels right because i'm the one who has the experience driving it. But Larry said "if it was my truck I'd be real happy with how it stops!"
