That doesn't sound like hard work. You'll probably find people here willing to help. I'd be surprised if anyone here took your money, Puck.

It drives with out leaks on the road but I cant take it off road with out gas going everywhere.
Dude I have offered to help. Ill do it for free. lemmie make sure I'm free this sat and it should be fine. That's all easy enough work, just a little time consuming.

I can probably also help shine it up a lil.....

Yep I agree, just had a shop I know replace my clutch. What a pita it would have been in my garage by myself with no tranny jack

She is going to also discuss if he would hold our guns too.

One of the major downsides to an overseas tour for us is she will be ending the tour right around her 20 year mark. We had planned on spending the next few years scoping out places that we want to retire at. I say retire, but where we want to stay once she gets out... I don't want to end her military career with both of us jobless and no place to live, sorta makes it hard to get approved for a mortgage. This was one of the reasons that we are considering trying to get Salt Lake City.
Have you two considered having her re-up? All she needs is 12M retainability after an overseas assignment. Who is to say you guys don't come back to the States, do a year and then drop retirement papers? Sure, that puts her in for 21, but then you have the best of both worlds. If she plays her cards right; she could have 21, 75 days of terminal leave, and a damn good shot at making rank which is good for that retirement check. Honestly, that is probably the route that I would take given the same situation.

If I wasn't already working on getting my own junk back together and helping my dad with his car, I would totally be down to wrench with you guys, but I gotta pass.

I found him a replacement gas tank locally. Plan is to pick it up in the AM. He's gonna bring the truck to my house and we are gonna go to work....probably replace the fuel lines without soft rubber to get it running well too. Any help would be appreciated. I will need more jackstands or an extra jack if anybody wants to bring em.

Well today has sucked big time. I got off work and while driving home my front tire blew up by Decatur on the 95. Forgot my jack at home so had to get a ride there only to search for any cheap tire in 33x12.5R15 and I've been up since 230am and I gotta go back to work in 6 hours.

And they surprised us by saying that were going to 5-11 hour days starting Monday!! Whooo! Can't wait for the paychecks. I need a new front axle.
