    Yup, believe mine needs a new belt, didn't have the time to fix it with the recent storms so I just bought a new one. Hope both of them last 10 more years!

    Yeah, with all the snow it's tough to find time to fix something in between storms, and at lest once you get your other one fixed you'll have a backup. I'm sure they'll lest you a very long time.

    That's always the key man, having a backup just in case something goes down. My dump went down plowing the other day... needed all new rotors/calipers/pads. Always something!

    I know anymore, I always try and have an extra for everything. Cause if you don't have it you can't get the job done, that sucks about your truck I was just thankful this past Saturday I was heading out to start clearing some driveways early in the morning and my truck wouldn't start thankfully it was only a battery and I was up and running in about a half hour.

    Yeah, I was getting ready to call a buddy of mine to do them. If I couldn't get a battery quick but it pays to know a real good mechanic. Glad you got the truck back, hope it didn't do to much damage on your wallet.

    Yeah, you just have to hustle that much harder to make that back on top of everything else.
