my old mans 04 hasent had any issues with the parking thing neither have the two 03'* i had for work trucks. but the rear rotors and pads had to be replaced every 40-50k when i did the fronts. all the vehicles ive had with rear drums almost never need the shoes done i just take the adjusters off and cover them with never-seize and normally the are trouble free. same for the 04 monte rear rotors same time as front, and dont get me started on the late 80'* early 90'* wbodies i had that was one of there biggest faults, it mostly just adds alot of expense when you are driving 40-50k per year its a big deal

Bought a truck box the other day.



Installed it using an install kit so I didn't even have to drill into the truck. I am gonna have to drill into the box though to mount my CB antennas.

I'm loving this one. It'* as deep as I could want, mounted perfect, and opens/closes smooth.

I like the layout of mine, but the latches and handles don't work at all. I think they aren't built as well as they should be.

I have craftsman tool boxes from the 60s and probably even older tools for those boxes.

Occasionally an old socket will break and I'll have to take it to get a free replacement. That'* why I only buy craftsman tools. I go to garage sales and buy broken tools for cheap and then get the free ones that actually work.

Today on the GMC I oil sprayed it. That should make it last through the winter no problem.

I do the same thing, except with Snap-On/Matco/Mac tools. I've turned all my cheap tools into other things. Like I've bought broken Craftsman and turned them into stubby wrenches or palm ratchets. I even took my set of Craftsman screwdrivers and turned them into brake spring tools.
