Five tires (Driver rear twice)
Two passenger side wheel bearings
One rotor
Two calipers
Four brake pads
One caliper bolt
One rim
Two brake drums
Two lower ball joints
One shackle
One serpentine belt
One license plate light harness
Two rear speakers
One 4x4 Control Module (Soon to be a second)
Soon to be timing chain tensioner(s) - maybe entire timing system

Yeah I know I should expect some things to go wrong with it being a 2002 with 143,000 miles but this is really taking a toll on me as a college kid!!! It just seems like its always something and always at the wrong time when money is tight! Don't get me wrong I love my truck but it sure knows how to make me mad! lol

sounds like you need to stop beating the shit outta your truck mang!

i guess it all depends on how you take it. i was 12 when it happened ... it hit me hard ... either way you'll never forget and you won't be too happy on that day ... its hard to. i know people say that "he'd never want to see you upset and crying over it" but its really hard to do because i lost the only man in my life that i could trust.

Well only thing I have to vent about is not getting laid last night. Got drunk as fuck. Railed the hell out of about 20 trucks in Pigeon Forge. ALMOST went to jail for PI and underage consumption due to me tackling a coke machine. And got some bitches phone numbers. And thats only the first night. Still got eight nights of this to go. Damn straight I love rod run weekends

The stupid previous owner cut off the transmission crossmember bolt head and threads and welded both bolts in there, so I am thinking that I need to find a new crossmember before dropping my transmission to replace my slave cylinder, because the bolts might be seized in the bushings, and if I drop it without a new crossmember in hand, and they are seized, I am screwed. Found out yesterday that the right front wheel bearing is shot. This truck will be the death of me.

The other deckhand is accusing me of stealing his sweat pants.... FML seriously? I don't wear sweat pants, and I don't steal, but since him and I are the same size, I get blamed, told him straight up that I didn't take em, but now he's going to the damn boss man to "see if he can resolve the situation, cuz them wasn't cheap"

^^this. We all will never forget it but replaying it on TV is just making it worse on everybody who lost loved ones in the attacks. Its like showing about a soldiers death on the news every year on the anniversary of it. Its kinda BS
