    I may sand it down flat with a drummer tool and paint it . Maybe .

    This is a little tongue in cheek but it did take awhile to pull it off and it did require a lot of skill to not render the button useless . I rebuilt the volume button on the stereo . The whole front part of the rectangular button was gone only leaving the outer edge . I got some model car glue and slowly filled it in .

You can feel when they're getting worn just by giving a good shake. Parts are pricey but less than the tow...
    Yeah , I'm planning on doing the drivers side in about 3 weeks that way I shouldn't have to do a axle / half shaft. Figure I'll do both upper ball joints at the same time . Those should be a price of cake since they aren't original . Just a unbolt deal .

    Getting heavy tires in a high rig... Roll it.. Lift and roll.. Roll it right up the bumper..
    Derby tires are doubled and tubed and many times have a 3/8" center welded in.. Usually roll them onto the trailer then over the tongue..

    Oh and by the way , I had been estimating the trucks weight at 6000 pounds , guess what the rollback had built in scales . I couldn't hardly believe it. Guess how much it weighed exactly. Yep 6000lbs.

    I put a new axle in after failing to get the old c/v joint apart to get the new boot on . It was only 30 buck mor than the 30 dollar boot . I did notice that the upper ball joint needs replaced but didn't have time for it . Maybe after my checking account has had a time to heal .
