about the same, some parts are eaiser for them because they can just lift the dump bed up to do ujoints, exhaust, and such, but it evens out because they need a bigger hoist than the average one that some places have.

My brother in law is a truck mechanic. He was Backer's mechanic for almost 10 years and now does work from home. He is generally cheaper than most shops. He is in the 8 Mile & Schoenherr area. PM me for contact info.

I am looking for a place this fall to dump leaves near the Rochester Hills area. If possible, for free. Any ideas?

Hey Shrub, There's a place on Auburn Road, it's not free but will take leaves and other stuff. It's on Auburn before Opdyke and it's called State Crushing or State Landscape Supplies. $10 yard for leaves.

Man I'm fed up with my V10, especially pulling a trailer. It goes through gas like a fat kid and a box of twinkies. What made you chose gas over diesel?
