    Just got back. Leaf truck (99 Isuzu npr with high sides) broke down today. Pretty sure its the starter but it was about 10-15 miles away from our shop. I work very very part time at a towing company just for a little fun and extra spending cash...oh and i have 6 trucks so everyonce and a while they need towed and thats a perk of working there they let me tow my stuff when needed.....so i towed this back to our shop and will work on it tomorrow. Just thought I would post some pics of the towing

    is that your first starter on that truck? How many miles do you usually get out of those things before you have noticed any major problems? I'm leaning towards getting one this spring.

    That stinks, it must be nice to be able to tow your stuff when you need too.

    no joke, i bought a 30' tilt deck trailer and I've about paid for it in moving our busted trucks around when needed

    I had to get towed this AM also. As I was leaving my driveway to go sand/salt at 4:30, smoke started filling the cab. Some wires shorted out again, 4th time in 6 years that has happened. I have been told that cab overs are noted for this problem.

    she was kind of heavy (fully loaded with wet leaves). Also it was only the starter so she was back up and running wed.
