Fogs saved my truck last night. There is a dark stretch on the drive home from work and if I didn't have my fogs I wouldn't have seen the deer that was heading for the road in time to slow down enough to avoid smacking it. Whew.

Okay took the truck in today for an alignment and was told I need a new right outer tie rod. I remember hearing that it's recommended that you do inner and outer at the same time as well as both sides. The roads up here are horrible so any ideas in ones that might be a bit tougher but not too expensive?

Okay so after talking with my dealership, pretty much the only people I trust with my truck, I have decided to get moog outer tie rods for both sides and he also recommended because of the ABS issue and being at almost 60k miles to change the rear diff fluid. I have watched some TV shows on this and stuff but am going to have them do all the work. My question though is, is there any advantage to going with an aftermarket rear diff cover other than looks? I know some add extra capacity, but would I even need that? I am new to this area of the truck, if you can't tell. lol
