    Awesome editing - love the judicious use of sound effects & visual puns. The content was cool too.

    Just an fyi the end of your video included a link to a Kilmer video among a bunch of your videos. Surely a sign of good things to come if your content is placed with his.

    Your truck sounds like a Lexus compared to mine! Common Rail versus VP44...

    I'll see if I can get the same measurement next time I'm in my truck.

    The rear brakes have been squeaking on and off for a year now. Lately it's gotten embarrassingly loud and does it all the time when almost coming to a stop. I finally pulled the back wheels off last night. The rh brake(where it sounded the loudest) seemed to have lots of meat left, no grooves in the shoe or drum. But the top and bottom edges had some rough spots, like rust spots. Probably from when it was parked part of the winter? I just scraped that off and slapped it back together.

    The brake on the left side was stuck. The e-brake cable was seized. I managed to wiggle it around at the bend just before it enters the backing plate and got it to free up enough to spin the drum and get it off. Cleaned up the shoes like the other side and pulled the cable out as far as I could. Slapped it back together and it's quiet again. As long as I never touch the e-brake I should be fine. I should replace both cables. I knew the one was sticky and pulled the hand brake when I replaced the airbag module(to get the console out). So far so good. For now.

    I guess 3 years came and went already. I bought this black turd in Jan 2021.

    It's got 320,xxxkm on it now(far less on the engine and cvt).

    After driving the 2023's around the parking lot the other day I'm thinking I should replace the struts and shocks. Maybe rear springs and the rubber cushions they sit on too. Could probably replace every suspension bushing and joint for far less than a new car and have a slightly nicer rusty car to drive.

    I see my local mechanic quite often. Not because of my cars, but I do all the scheduling of service for the driving school cars parked at our local high school.

    He always seems swamped with work. It's been that way since COVID. I think most people are keeping vehicles longer these days, and that means more work for local shops.

    The average vehicle age on US roads is 12.6 years now.

    I never thought I'd do this but I'm trading my car for a Kia.

    But just for a few days. I can't stand driving my car with an effered arm/back for even my 20 min commute. I gotta head out to a jerry springer special bachelor party in Sasakatchebush that's 4hrs away so I'm taking the wife's Korean trash can. I spent the entire day cleaning it for mothers day so hopefully it's not back in trash can mode already.

    I'll see what kinda fuel economy I can eek out of the thing. It's a 20' Sorrento with a v6 and I think it has an 8speed because more gears is more better. Here's hoping for at least 20mpg!
