I get up this morning, hop in the jeep and take off to drill with my reserve unit this morning. I get a couple miles down the road, try to slow down for a car i'm coming up on and realize my brakes are kinda "soft" and that's putting it firmly. I go a few hundred yards further, start checking my brakes since i'm the only one on the road and nothing, notta, zip, zilch, absolutely no braking power
. I come to a stop sign and have to use my E brake to stop
. Since it was so earlly no one was on the road I turned around in a parking lot. I keep her at about 30mph and limp her home with no problems. Since my jeep is my only daily driver, I didn't make it to drill, instead I spend the day working on brakes.
Now after new pads, turning rotors, and some fresh brake fluid she's all healthy again. I knew i was due for a brake service and was planning on doing it on Wed, my next day off.
If you're gonna be stupid you gotta be tuff!
Tazers don't kill people. Husbands who come home early kill people
