They had labor at 3 hours and it took them 3.5 hours for the engine to cool off. It cost $350....entirely too much. It is enough to make me work on my mechanic skill :)

Just pull all the plastic crap off the motor, step on the front bumper and lay across the motor. It is one of the most awkward things ever but it works. I'm still kicking myself for giving up though....

Man, I have really debated putting on a bullbar with a winch on the front just in case. I just can't make myself want to keep dumping money in this truck (other than maintenance). I'm trying to save...

Not trying to be a jerk, but the only way you are going to get different wheels is if you pay for them. The onus was really on you to figure out what you were buying, and the dealer will not likely...
