Default Just got back from the shop...

And big blue has a clean bill of health. Went in for an oil change and tire rotation, came out with $789 of recommended services (which I will do myself), and not ONE mechanical problem. I havent been under the truck since I bought it, I figured at 56k miles there would be a weeping seal somewhere...nope.

This is a good thing. Here's to 56000+ more trouble free miles.

I'm at 93K miles, and the only thing weeping is the PS pump. Haven't had to replace any, so I'll just keep an eye on it. Just out of curiosity, what did they recommend?
