I love this thread already. Reminds me when my sister called me for help with her car, a beetle , she said it just made a loud bang and started running really really rough that she pulled over. I get there and pop the hood... Looks normal then I look underneath and notice the engine is about 2 inches off the ground.... Motor mounts broke and the engine just fell..... More stories with her and her cars than I can remember. Good times

Those plastic end links break on a stock vehicle, let alone on something leveled

Death wobble above 45mph, brakes beyond metal to metal, tires worn passed the threads, brake lines stretching and cracking. And having to blow in a disgusting breathalyzer at the same time which the customer conveniently didn't have any extra mouthpieces.

You can call the breathalyzer tech line and they'll give you a code or tell you how to bypass those things. They just need your business license number or something. I had a really nasty dodge with one that I refused to blow into so we figured that out.

I've bought 2 repairable/part out trucks that had a hole cut in the bed floor and a piece of sheet metal screwed to the bed floor to access the pickup/fuel sender on the fuel tank.

Traded this Silverado 1500 in. Guy put 1" wheel spacers on without trimming OEM studs down to be flush with spacer . So all 4 wheels were seated only on the tips of the factory studs. The tires are half tread so you have to think that they'd been running like this for several thousand miles.

They also welded in a aftermarket muffler that must be 2.5" in/out so they got real creative with their reducers and welding. Possibly the worst welding I've ever seen.

Me too, I'm an electrician so it makes my brain hurt to see stuff like that. It's hard to believe but I've seen WAY worse on customers boats. I'll have to start taking pictures...

buddy of mine in high school wired up some strobe lights in his truck like that. called me one afternoon asking if he wired it right. i hear him shut the door and go "oh shit, oh shit, OH SHIT, (click)". i was sitting there going, wtf??? he calls back a while later and goes "man i almost lit my truck on fire! wires got caught in the door and shorted to the body. i burned my hand ripping the wires off the battery". i go "how the hell did you get the wires caught in the door?". he ran them just like the pic, i just shook my head. even in high school i knew better....

Are most of them junk? Or just people just want them that bad?

The wiring through the door is just inexcusable! There's plenty of spots to run it through the firewall. Smh
