Oh boy, Haha!

Today, I was almost home from work when I heard this big clunk, then some skidding sounds and then another big clunk. It went on for about 10 seconds. So, I pulled off to the side of the road and looked under my truck. Everything looked okay, no warning lights from dashboard or tuner. So, about 10 minutes from my house, sitting in traffic, I noticed that there was a really strong diesel smell in my truck. I thought I blew something up but the truck was running like a champ. The truck sounded a lot different too. Like a modification had been made...Anyways, got home, said hi to the family and threw down a blanket and had a look under my truck. When I first looked I noticed something was very different. My exhaust was a smudge out of place. Then I noticed it...my damn straight pipe fell off. The guy that put it had to use brackets to hold it in because he couldn't hold it with anything else. But the dang thing just popped right on out of there, almost like magic. Just had to tell you guys, thought you would get a good kick out of it.

Oh and I lost the pipe on the freeway, so the guy that put it in for me ordered me a new one and it should be here within a couple of days.

Only trust people you know to put **** in for you!

This is why I do most of my own work on my truck.
