Chris, it's so true. The first part of they day was very twilight zone. John was extremely helpful and made fixing a few things very convenient. I would have been in a random parking lot without all of the sweet snap on tools, grease gun, air etc..

Oh god... Standing at port was a disaster. I waited over an hour at a dead end with semi trucks passing by.

The little 2.5 is sweet. I think my gear box is toast though. Even so, I made it home without issue.
