If I would've changed it, that would've taken time (Which I don't have this week). If I took it to get mounted that would've cost me $5 plus about $5 in gas.... So I said screw it and let them mount it. I still feel like I got Hosed. BTW, I hear that tire prices will be going up 75% this year. They've already increased in price by 35% since Jan. Something to ponder over.
I wish my repairs were that cheap bro... This spring I've paid over...

$600 for mower repairs + I need a new seat which is like $350+
$400 for trailer repairs (both axles were bent and wiring was messed up)
$117 for truck repairs (turn signals were broke)

The thing is, I'm basically solo so that is a hell of a lot of money for running one setup IMO. Needless to say, I'll trade you repair bills

I don't know how the axles got bent. I just noticed the tires were wearing really weird so I took it in and that's what they told me.

The wiring got messed up when the female connector on the truck wore out. When that happened the trailer plug drug across the ground and messed up the wiring. When I rewired the trailer they sold me the wrong plug so I was hooking all different colors together and it hasn't worked right since then. Until now when they fixed it..



Hell, even my laptop LCD went out this month, at least that was under warranty.

Very warm out today down here. Had a good breeze going. We did 32 yards today. My feet are screaming, help me help me. Got 14 to do on Friday then done cutting for the week. Time to go scrounge up something for dinner.
