Angry Never letting anyone work on my truck!!!!!!

So about a week ago my truck needed axel seals both sides front and rear and while I was in there I decided I would do cv axels (135k)....i made the mistake of taking it to a guy I know because I "didn't want the headache"... I got my truck back and the first thing I noticed was it REEKED of rear end fluid in my cab, and today I go out to my truck and find my rear end is driping from the diff cover..... Ahhhhhhh!!!! Lesson learned, if you want something done right......DO IT YOURSELF!!!!

X2!! I learned this a long time ago when i brought my 86 ranger in to have the trans rebuilt and it came back with a poorly rebuilt trans, (blew again after 1 month) grease all over the interior, a perminant hand print in the paint on the hood and two bent up stainless tailpipes (they used a truck to push it around the parking lot and crushed my dual exhaust pipes) Its hard to find good mechanics.

No they literally pushed it around the lot with the bumper of another truck. I was floored when I found that out.
