Angry I give up.... Quitting while I'm ahead...

Ok, just frusterated... You might find it funny tho:

I finally got my MBRP exhaust today.... not the one I wanted, but I decided I didnt want to wait another month. Plus saved a couple hundred clams... so its OK.

I was going to put the truck up on the ramps, (all 4 wheels...easier to get under it) Climbing the ramps....drove over the back.

Ok, get out....move ramps, drive forward...get out.... put ramps back again, get in, start climbing.... Ok, got it centered, (without driving over them) go to set the E-Brake... petal goes to the floor. It snapped, right where the 2 cables connect. There goes another $50.

So, I am no oficially pissed... go inside, chill for a bit. Go back out, attempt to try to get the clamp off the turbo...bang my hands up.... cant quite get it, dropped the wrench about 4 times...

And now it's snowing...might need to plow...and have to go to the mechanic anyway to get the cable replaced. I really can't afford to chop up the exhaust and lose the ability to drive my truck.

I give up. I'm gonna pay the mechanic.
