Who's Murphy? It should be X JBM X's Law...
Sorry in advance...short rant in store...
So this truck has done nothing but cost me money since I bought it. Granted, I love the truck, but Christ, it'll be a new fukkin truck before I'm done fixing everything!!!
New on the list:
I brought it to my buddy's shop for ball joints, had them done, fine. Go to get it aligned...still an inch of play at 6 and 12...time for wheel bearings.
Then, I get back from the alignment shop (after they aligned it btw, he made a judgement call since I was unreachable for an hour or so) the son of a ***** still pulls to the right like crazy!
Then, I go outside on Sunday morning to find my tire flat. Great. Turns out to be the valve stem, so I fill 'er back up. Figured I'd check the pressures around the rest of the truck. Rear tire (the one that wasn't flat) is inflated to 90psi!!!! WTF!! Max rating on the tire is 80, and door jamb says 55!! GRRR!!! And the 2 fronts are at 75!!.
So I bring them all down to 65psi, which is acceptable by me, and the truck pulls farther to the right.
So today, I start her up, and guess what? The battery light is on in the dash. I read the manual, check the battery connections...It's a mystery! Voltage gauge is reading the right thing, but battery light is on. How do I fix that?!?!?
I mean F***. I need a break. This think is draining my pocket!
I got rid of my Subaru WRX STi (which was in PERFECT SHAPE) for this damned thing that has been nothing but a headache. What was I thinking!?!?
Someone please tell me it will all be over soon and I'll be able to get another 150000 miles out of my good looking lifted truck without having to spend every last dollar!!
