Lost a bolt that holds my front caliper on the drum running 60. Thought my brakes went out and now looking at having to buy new pads because of the grove in them.

Glad nothing else happened...but new rotors for both front sides, and get ceramic pads..well worth the little extra

It just sucks altogether. Sinking all my money into my Bronco and this happens. Think God nothing bad happened and I was a mile from the house before I noticed it. Still very aggravating.

I got this basic clutch from O-rilley for about 160.. And that came with a new clutch, pilot bearing, and throwout bearing. I think it was a duralast band :P.... I honestly wouldn't spend all that money for a clutch that goes in a 3.0. Just get basic. I'm very happy with my new clutch work I've done to it..

I think LUK is OEM for our trucks. I went with the LUK pro gold for my 4.0.

That there is a hole in the oil pan from something flying through the bottom of it... after I just replaced the heads and gaskets.
