Haha yea just wait. It'll get tough. I'm in my 2nd year, so just getting into engineering-related classes. Calc2 and C++ particularly have been kicking my butt.

Its hard....no doubt about that. All of the material is practical though. And the way the world is with computers and programs, once you are out of college you are basically done doing all the really hard math...that is the computer's job. You just have to know conceptually what is going on and how to use the tools at hand.

That being said, I had five semesters of math: Trig, calc 1, calc 2, calc, 3 and diff. equations. I made all C's except in diff. equations in which I got a B+. It was pretty much living hell but with the math out of the way, now the rest is more applied and practical. I am by no means a brainiac...I'd like to think I am more down to earth and sociable than the average engineering major. For that reason though I never excelled in math and had to work my butt off just to pass....glad those days are over and I can enjoy my engineering classes for what they are now. Once the math classes are out of the way that is more than half the battle (at least for ME degrees here at CSUS).

Good luck fellow ME'ers, it is a great degree with lots of opportunity in the job world, and best of all most of it can be applied to our trucks in one way or another!

Not much of an update, but at the end of April or early May I'm gonna have a new driveline made (or possibly just my current one balanced, which I doubt).

Might buy this as a fun toy:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1050

Swap my electronics and motor over from my 2wd, and sell of my 2wd chassis as a beefed up roller with many spare parts to cover the cost of the 4x4...I could potentially upgrade to the 4x4 one for as little as $120-150.

End of May early June I am planning to put an AGR box and an AGR pump as well as new powersteering hoses to completely do away with the 233,000 mile worn out stock stuff that is on there now.
