Yup thats the part that makes it worth while. If we have something that comes up i can just reschedule everyone for the day. Or my wife tells me about a doc app the night before, she is really good at that. I really am to a point i need to hire a guy. Ive always been worried i couldnt keep a guy busy year round but for two years now ive been constantly swamped. It hurts to turn work away.

Exactly. Its a shame what this country has come to. Really is. I'm young so that should mean something when I say it. I remember growing up around age 12, me and my buddies would ride our bikes all over to pools,the nearest gas station for candy and pop. Now I won't hardly let my son out of my sight riding his bike or playing outside while I'm working in the barn. You just never know with today's society and people.

Actually it's not any different now then it was in the 60's/70's when I grew up. In reality violent crime is down from that time. You just hear about it more with 24/7 news and social media. And parents have been shamed into having to hover over their kids and protect them from everything. Having raised 2 boys almost a generation apart (20 years different) I even see it in myself. Harder to give Jack his freedom then it was to let Heath fly solo. Jack has his license now so he's flying whether we like it or not.

I'll have a look, dunno why the rears were fine before replacing the pads & rotors. Unless when I compressed em I pushed crud into the seals. Not real happy since I'm doing this damn job for free for my wife's best friend, on a damn Jeep that'd be better off burned for insurance purposes.

@SparkyF250 you got it easy. I volunteered to replace my best friends spark plugs. Easy job, right? Well, when it's a 3 valve V-10 Triton... not so much. Two plugs came out as they should have. The other 8 all broke off and left the the bottom piece in the head. I had to buy an extractor kit to get them out. He paid half, but his truck was down for two days since I was doing this in the evenings. Not a fun job.

Yeah she has an F150 with a Triton too, I told her I'd rather not do the tuneup. She asked about the plugs in the Jeep, took one look and politely declined. At least you can see em, just can't see where you can get a wrench on em.
Another reason to drive trucks without spark plugs.
