I have 2 pretty identical Dodge Ram trucks. Yes, I just spent 3k putting a new diff in the other truck.

Always something.

My buddy just got the rotted bed swapped on one ram, and finally got the electrical issues sorted on his other ram so the fuse box now has power(apparently that model year has issue with a circuit board either getting wet and rotting circuit board, or cracking in half at the power terminals for the fuse block), and is running decent.

Yesterday, his Dakota that's been the reliable parts runner, decided to spring spring a large leak at the water pump... That truck used to have a rear bumper rust problem, and now just lacks a rear bumper, so it was one issue that worked itself out

Carpooling with my parents to LA for my grandmotherís gravestone unveiling ceremony thingy (one year anniversary).

Even with the windows closed it is not much better...

When we drive up to visit our older children in Sacramento, our younger kids always ask "how much longer to the stinky cow place"?

You guys would never roll down your windows again if you worked in the town I do. It is everywhere all the time.

Hell the whole town theme is cows!

I read that as projected lifetime production, assuming the average production over 10 lactations as defined by some standard test.

Got up at 6am. Drove from NH to Boston, was supposed to get a connecting flight in Charlotte NC and be in PDX by 8pm. Got diverted to Myrtle Beach SC due to bad weather. Sitting on the tarmac for hour and a half because they canít handle the amount of planes. Bag shows still in Boston. Maybe be home sometime tomorrow afternoon Hope this place has a bar thatís open late.
