Crossed threads are tight threads.
Sometimes I would gladly trade all those tools and times and struggles and crap to be the regular Joe Blow with a AAA card, a warranty and a lease.

Everything is heavier the older I get....Im considering a forklift for things like tire rotations, or carrying a sheet of plywood.

Yeah, those are nice,
BUT...
Without dropping pan, can't clean pan or change filter...
Unless someone's come up with a way to do those thru that itty bitty dipstick tube. :icon_rofl:
On my F150 I disconnect the line and pump the fluid out (carefully), which drains it enough to drop the pan without a mess. I saw a youtube video on it. I was able to give it a good flush this way adding fresh fluid as it pumped out as well. Worked great and solved a slight shifting issue

Where's the fun in that ?
You would miss the mess caused by dropping pan partially to let fluid slop out, missing drain catch pan. Also having that fluid splash all over your hands, arms, face. And of course cleaning and mopping the spilled fluid off the garage floor.
That would be like eating ribs with a knife and fork instead of getting it all over your face !
No fun in that !

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Washing/detailing/waxing the frame/chassis/underside of the body and bed. Pain in the arse to lie on your back doing all that stuff !!!
WTF? Who does that?

Here. I'll fix it for you and it will fit me.

If you have a lease and a warranty, you don’t need AAA... The tow is covered by the manufacturer.

Even if the vehicle had to be towed from an Arby's parking lot after you were arrested for rubbing your junk on all the packets of horsey sauce?

As long as you use your phone call to call up and say the truck is broken.
