Hi from newb
Hi all, I finally joined. I actually perused the site for a few years when researching parts for my truck. Until recently, I haven't had to do a damn thing to my 99' SDCC for 13 years other than general mainenance and recall items. This week I have spent over $3000 just in parts to keep it on the road. Last week was new batteries and alternator at a cost of $589, this week was AC compressor, water pump, T-stat, drive belt, fuel filter, shocks, door click, tie rods and maybe a few parts I dont' remember. I did have the dealer install the AC pump and had them do the waterpump while it was there, costly mistake. They wanted to charge me $284.00 to install a T-stat as well even while everything was open and accessible. I told them no and told them why. My truck has been rock solid over the years and doesn't leak a drop of anything. It currently has 255,000 miles on it and I'm hoping for another 250k. I use the truck for hauling tile/stone, job trailers and boats. I take it camping, fishing, hunting and haul furniture for moves. The front end looks a little dated but I absolutley love my truck. Looking forward to rubbing wits with y'all.
