lol i know, it just seemed loose. i feel like that sometimes

just last week after dealing with a battery problem (new battery) i got in the truck and i had a horrible steering wheel shake when i turned left. dad ofc blamed it on the tread patern of the bfg a/ts but i was like its never happend before. so 15 mins later, its perfectly fine....so its gotten me a little paranoid. the only thing i could think of is that because the battery died, the power steering fluid settled?

yeah it sat for 2 hours in the walmart parking lot where i was stranded -_-. i just cant think of what it was. all i did was sit in the truck for 2 hours waiting for my dad to come with my tools because embarassingly i had removed the toolbox the day before to dump a load and didnt put it back on. replaced the battery and that was it...

i'd never heard of 'em neither untill i followed one of my old co- workers down after our shift ended. it's right on 209 but it's really tiny. after buying my toolbox from them though i plan on going back there for any of my larger purchases for the truck
