I'll have to check on that Chad, but a great idea. The place I used to go to for occasional help has gone the way of the dodo - they had one and I just never had a need to use it.

Any idea if a...

Thankfully, the trip in was uneventful at all of the gates. The main gate had more strikers than usual, but that was the extent of it today. Enjoyed driving the Chief again, but I think I've got some...

Worry will wear you out in a hurry. I noticed the last time I took the Cherokee to Ouray that 800 miles of worry each way pretty much wore me out. Imagine how much it would cost you though if you did...

I'm No Guru

Make sure you educate that mechanic, because he's on the hook to replace that TC if it's broken. And they're not making any of the really important parts anymore.
