I'm pretty sure we passed you on our way to Yellowstone. My wife took this picture out the window as we passed by. I'm glad to see you're back on the road.

that is us! on the oregon trail... lol Nice shot! she kept starting and going and we made it home. Getting the going over by our mechanic, who says brake shoes were gone, down to the rotor on one rear and that we must have had a driving angel... can't wait to hear what else, ugh! :-) I haven't even been able to give her a bath yet. sigh!

You should have a go at doing them yourself.

Been there, done that... As the Travco uses 500 lbs of torque on the lugs, My 500 pound impact wouldnt even budge them.. Stepped up and fired up my 1300 pound impact running a 3/4 adapted air line and they flew off. Still have the forged Budd impact sockets at over 60.00 ea. A 20 ton air-over hydraulic jack etc. etc. .. no more mechanical nut twisting for me... Ever try using that factory lug nut remover with the furnished steel rod/bar for more leverage just for starters? still have mine if you wanna' try it out... Cheaper all the way around to have some one qualified to do it and I can bitch when I pay the premium dollar for a job... My skills now are going into the lighter things to make the Travco better... New mirrors, medicine cabinet, light fixtures, new dash controls, marker lights, Work on the Wemac panel etc. etc. Now you know... Had OH surgery recently, gave up my dresser as it was too heavy, over 850 pound and recently got frisky enough to get a 6 spd super glide at only 550 pounds.. The doctors originally gave me a limit of lifting 5 pounds but I told them I exceeded that limit every morning.... Hope this makes doing YOUR brake job a little lighter...BBB
