I'm with ya, brother. My wife is "Jeep challenged", and while I hope to convert her one day, in the meantime there is a few tricks.
-Try like he!! to beat her home from work, so you can move the boxes UPS drops off into the garage before she sees them.
-Pay cash if possible; you don't have to write an amount in the checkbook and a charge won't show up on a credit card invoice.
-Don't leave reciepts laying around. It's better that she doesn't know all the details.
-Drivetrain direct sends invoices separate from the package. This is a bad thing. WIFE:"You said gears were only $150. ME:"Well, uh, I needed an install kit, and a new carrier, and they gave a real good price on the lockrite, and how's that ring I got you for Christmas working out?"
-Assemble a stash of pizza coupons, cuz them cold sandwiches get old after awhile.
One more thing - a little bit of grease really helps hold the pieces of the lockrite in place as you assemble it in the carrier case; but make sure you clean off the kitchen table really good when you finish the install. People eat off that thing, you know.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
