I got the 4cyl work tacoma up to 6 grand today. Sadly no satisfying rev limiter, just an alarming and instant defueling.

Re: Important

Autozone is a mile from my house.
O'Rieleys is 1.5 miles from my house.
Advanced auto is 2 miles from my house.
Napa is 4 miles.

I prefer NAPA but I'm in the top ten (told me maybe top 5) autozone rewards customers. They are close and I know what I need at a moments notice, I get it. I also know who carries what in stock, ie rear caliper for the 5.9 ZJ is only in stock at the Advanced Auto.

If I'm planning to work on something a couple days out...I use amazon.

The last XJ radiator I purchased was from the local radiator shop for around $100...probably the same cheep china stuff from the parts store, but I felt better about it.

Re: Important

I'm still on vacation.

Working part time for our local 10 day festival that kicks off tonight.

I'm seriously watching 10 pontoon boats and a helicopter all night.

Tuesday night I watched food trailers as they were getting set up.

Re: Important

I just started working at the AAP in town as a part-time gig. The commercial rep and asst. manager are about the only ones that know anything besides me. I only got the job because the GM is leaving in a week and they need coverage. It's sounding like I may end up becoming nights/weekends asst. manager and the current becomes GM...

I do agree with Tim that the parts are either really cheap or really expensive and not much in-between and I've only been there three days....
