Ditto, it's a hole. Subsequently its main attraction is also a hole in the ground.

If you've never been to Carlsbad its massively worth the side trip. Last time I had to carry one of my fat ass babies the whole way through which kind of sucked. Can't wait to go back now that they are self propelled.

The only way you're possibly, and I stress possibly, going to get differential oil from the gas cap is if the breathing tube for the differential somehow came loose and is sitting over there by the gas cap somewhere. But it's always been my understanding that fluid runs downhill.

Ditchdoc, Congrats on the axle!

htkrph, Fantastic to hear no one was hurt.

Remodeling is almost done on the new house. So it looks like we start moving next Friday. Have to leave our five acre paradise with a three county view to go to Santa (Spits on the ground.) Clarita. Move is required for wife's job or we wouldn't go.

Going to have a helluva garage sale too. Furniture, appliances, household crap, treasures (General crap.) junk guns. etc.

I hate moving.
Sorry you gotta move. i know you love it out there and enjoy the extra space. Sent you a PM.

Yes you are right. My parents saw it happen from their liberty. The scary part my little sister was riding with me when it happened: I was in the back seat with my dogs saw it happening in slow motion.

Ditchdoc It's not really what I want. It's just cheaper and I am cheap.

Lol no pics my parents where to freaked out to take them and my girl was as well. So my brother had the good nerves to fix the situation. Any suggestions on what to check?

The tranny burned up a month later. Check to see if any fluids leaked and if so top it back off.
