    Well its at Jacksonville port Florida,

    Had a bad start! the company doing the road part of the shipping hired a numpty that drove the truck with a gearbox cooler pipe leaking.He didn't notice the lack of drive from the auto box but drove it untill it stopped cooking the gearbox.

    The short of it is they refused all liability so i am 2K+ out of pocket for a rebuilt gearbox etc,then again what do you expect from a yank, ime here my truck is there not enough money involved to get lawyers involved and they played on that.The main shipper didn't want to get involved either

    Anyway its at the port to be shipped on the 21st
