Ive caught myself in the last while bein cheap as hell on doin stuff.  Me and Lee were laughin about me buildin an engine and not even replacin the oil pump or timing chain and him usin bulk oil thats free cause "thats money" lol.  The engine im referring too cranked on a 3 different brand, used spark plugs that came out of the bolt bin.  The economy has my job like a wicked coaster but the up slopes are alot more common these days.  Anybody that wants to comment on the latest big broke-ness is welcomed--

how about last month i pulled an axle out and put tape on it to tighten up a leaky alxe seal, and to keep from buyin 1.

Also takin apart a starter to clean the contacts cause that thing is 30 bucks!!!

some people dont do the 4x4 thing cause they say breakin is inevitable and its too expensive, this thread is for U!

I feel your pain, a lot of people talk sh!t because I don't ride hard. Wel I don't have the money to fix my junk. I try to keep it so all i have to do is check fluids and fill propane bottles. If that means i winch or go around a hard spot so be it.Both of my drive shafts have old used joints in them.

Times are tough, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. If that means hammerin out gaskets out of a cereal box, or makin shifter linkage out of sh!t in the scrap box then so be it. I have found myself making or re using sh!t that would have never crossed my mind to reuse a couple years ago. Eh what are ya gonna do.
