Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

This truck has never been used off road, the "U" joints can't be replaced individually because they are actually an integrated part of the drive line. So I had to replace the entire drive line. The repair shop that did the work had also looked at my truck several months ago when the transmission started slipping. They said, that the bad drive line could have also been a contributing factor to the transmission slipping. Oh, but that wasn't the end of my transmission issues.
