Given the nonsense we pull when working on our trucks, chiropractors ought to be listed in the necessary tools or preferred vendors sections. :lol:

Surgery is not an option, the doctor I saw today said no need for MRI cause I do not need surgery I don't have that type of injury/symptoms. It's basically ice, rest, and try to move around as much as possible without pain.

My chiropractor is $28 a visit. I don't even have them submit it, since I am going to be paying it on deductible anyway.

Some of the best Chiropractors I've seen only take cash. They're usually fairly inexpensive because they don't have the overhead to handle insurance.

Be careful and smart. Back pain sucks. My doctor told me once to take a Tylenol and ibuprofen together. One each and a glass of water. It has worked really well for me. I can't take pain pills. Makes me grumpy in the mornings. I feel that once you have back pain it just sticks around. It likes to hide and then one day you get that pop and there she goes. Get better soon.

Funny but I got rid of most of it by my choice. We literally had two of everything. So bye bye.

Thanks to a great friend GTO Mike who drove across town and my brother, Rusty is all put back together, here is a pic of the first load, the remains of the old rusty bed floor and the left over parts of the donor bed, on their way to a metal recycler, these bits are way past saving

again a huge thank you to Mike and John

Greg, I only replaced the bed floor, the sides are the same old ones, not painted, cause I ran out of time and money

Hey Greg, if you want to make your tail lights look new again give them a good buff with some metal polish then go over with a good wax. Did it on mine 6 months ago and they still look great. Really helped to turn back the clock on my truck!

It's been 30 days for me and still dealing with it here. My work really would prefer me gone at this point. It is their policy not to employ people with problems, I guess. Last weekend I forced myself to do a little on my truck. It took a full day to swap my column out for a tilt version. normally that only take a couple of hours.

Back on page 15 when you were cleaning up the intake and heads, how did you go about that? I just started cleaning up my engine and im always worried that Im going to get a bunch of grime in the engine.

I think I shoved large paper paper towels into the intake openings in the heads, not the half sheet ones, don't sweat it too much unless you get metal shavings in there, or wire brush bristles, if you get some dirt it will blow out, I don't recommend being sloppy, but I would not dismantle the engine if a tiny piece of dirt fell in, know what I mean, share some pics, so I can live vicariously through you, hee hee

kind words, thank you, here's how the Greg spent a couple days, God bless daughters my 10 year old dropped off the Walkie Talkie and said use it daddy when you need anything

Two Things

1. What kid plays with walkie talkies these days?!?!?! right guys, know what I'm saying, how cool is that

and B. about 10 mintues later she wanted to rip the walkie talkie out of my cold dead hands, since I was like BEEP can I have a glass of water, BEEP, can I have some ice... BEEP BEEP how about a bendy straw, LOL
