wrenching on dd/tow rig

well i just finished getting my tow rig pickup back into daily driver form (dd zuk munched its own rods so it is RIP until i build a new engine). installed a new clutch master cylinder and completely new brakes all around including new calipers, rotors, wheel cylinders, lines everything! man was it a bitch to bleed out all the air (both the brake system and clutch).

anyway i enjoy wrenching on my zuks, but when it is on a dd or a vehical i need for transportation it is no longer fun. is this just me or does anyone else agree??

Its defintiley more fun to work on the trail rig . I tend to put off maintenance on the daily drivers to tinker on my zuk !

Re: wrenching on dd/tow rig

It's always a chore and a hassle when you have to have it ready for the next day. Project vehicles, race
cars, second cars/trucks, = Fun. greasy dirty hard to work on DD's = Hell

Re: wrenching on dd/tow rig

I see it like this.

Workin on my sami is a stress reliever.

Workin on my daily driver is a stress causer.

Re: wrenching on dd/tow rig

i am glad i'm not the only one that feels this way. the other thing i like about zuks is they seem easier to work on and parts such as transmissions are light wieght and easy to remove/reinstall.

i also don't have to have to guess which nuts/bolts are standard and which are metric.
