Roadside Repairs

Not exactly roadside per say, but I was 700 miles away from home when I heard a crunching noise emanating from the front left quadrant of my truck. Easy repair. No specialized tools required other than an axle nut, 32 mm, which I was able to borrow from AutoZone. Note the jack. The black one on the right. Its the first time in the 6 years I've owned this thing that I've had to use that jack. The really shiny part in the middle of the picture is the hub assembly, which is what I replaced.

If you had bought that blazer instead of going north you wouldn't have broken down with your truck.
