I am going to discuss any possible needs for a W.A.T at the meeting on Thursday, but I thought I wouid go ahead and ask to jump start this section and have it in the back of everyone's mind.

so what type of maintence or modifications does anyone have in store?
I for one have some nagging electrical stuff I need to sort out as well as some other minor issues.

okay, okay! "step away from the knife, we can talk about this"

Let me guess they are saying that it is an oversized package and weighs too much for a single driver correct?

Just go to the depot and pick it up yourself, save the hassle and be done with it.

Are you going to need help installing? I would imagine you have that taken care of by yourself don't you?

I am sure you are handling it well, but sometimes if the shipper calls and complains that the "customer" is complaining shipping company's begin to move.

I am not saying to call Shannon, but Champion Toyota is a bigger name thans say "Todd…"

somthan to consider.

I know you are not upset with Shannon, but what I am saying is this.

when I ran my business I used a lab in Cali for my processing. If I had an order delayed or lost. We got better results when the lab called the shipping co. more than when the end customer/reciever called and complained.

Only justifaction I could come up with, was the lab in the eyes of the shipping company had the potiential of sending more business to the shipping company than the reciever.

Basically it is like who is going to be more important to me as a business? a Company with a big name such as "toyota" or joe blow off the street that might send me his business every once in a while.

As my mom used to always tell me, it is not always what you know, but who you know!

whenever we have a WAT, i wanna be there so when i do my first CV change, im not on my own
Man it has been a while since I did a CV change! I am a bit rusty.

Never had to do a CV on my truck while it was IFS. I was always watching what the front was doing and never over taxed it. I let all my friends treat their CV's as tooth picks and helped pick up the pieces afterwards:D

cv's are so easy if you have ADD.......if you have lock outs not so much.........between the fact that the add cv's are stronger and they are easier to change I see no reason to swap to lockouts......I have had to change two cv's due to old age and mialage killing the boots

cv's would be good to know how to change
you have A.D.D correct? basically if you can remove wheel bearings and such, you can replace the CV's you would be surprized how little is actually holding them in place.:D

But as I said before, it is has been a long time since I had to remove any. I think I might want someone else looking over my shoulder as well!

Do you have CV issues currently?
