After welding in new flex joints a couple of years ago and recently doing some creative patchwork it's time to replace them. The final straw was the driver's side pipe cracking at the end of...

    The last few years have been hell. As I posted in Off Topic, I'm on 4 years cancer free. During the same time, I had a three solid year battle with the IRS over Identity Theft / Tax Refund Fraud. It also turned out, the fraudster did the same with my New Jersey state tax returns. All told...
