    My wife is cool...

    So the transmissions breaks, which means a bunch of out-of-pocket money. I know the whole performance thing takes it's toll on my wife and something breaking never helps matters. But she's always been really supportive.

    Anyway, transmission breaks, I'm thinking great, now I have to explain why my Level 5 trans no longer works. She's very cool about it and understanding even though I know it's more financial stress.

    So I'm laying under the truck the last two nights as time permits, working on getting the trans out.

    She comes home today and asks me to go get some stuff out of the trunk. Open the trunk and there's a nice low profile creeper she got from Sears. Said she felt bad I had to lay on the cold ground and that hopefully I could use it when I was putting the trans back in.

    Just wanted to share and say it's cool to have a way cool wife.

    (oh and thanks for assisting her Mic)

    It isn't a huge huge deal, but she could have pitched a fit about why the trans I spent so much on just broke, but she didn't. I just thought it was pretty cool.
