#4901: THAT is definitely a u-joint.

Today, on my way home from work? Squeaking noise that is loudest above 45 MPH, and totally absent when the truck is coasting.

U-joint, rear driveshaft. Has to be the rear driveshaft because the front is unloaded with the transfer case in 2H, and the noise only occurs when torque is applied.


Well, it happened on a Friday afternoon, it shouldn't cost much, and I have all weekend to replace it. Such a stimulating life I lead.

This is a good explanation of why public sentiment has begun to trend anti-police. I know my own encounter with the jackbooted thug variety of cop has permanently soured my opinion of police.

I made it through my abbreviated week to the weekend. I had hoped to spend my weekend convalescing to one extent or another, but with the Jeep needing a u-joint my options have become rather limited. I need to fix that, so that's what I'll do.

But right now I am too tired to do anything, having gotten up (as usual) at 4 AM to get myself to work on time. So Friday night's agenda is "sleep".
