    Engine head gaskets on a V6, followed by the slightly less difficult (!) heater core replacement.

    Catback exhaust. Decided not to finish the turboback but would’ve hired someone for the install+tune anyways, working under the car without a lift fucking sucks.

    Took the Rubicon offroading, while maneuvering a big Boulder the suspension came off from one side. Had to solder it in the wilderness. Luckily we were prepared and had the equipment and experienced guys to help.spare 4x4s as well.

      Solder? Do you mean weld? Also how did you get power in the middle of nowhere?

      Luckily we had gear. A generator too. The other vehicle was a RAM, used it to get the wrangler out of the ditch

    One time I wiped my feet before entering in order to prevent mud from getting on the carpets while my driver held the door open for me.

    Struts and axles are pretty hard by yourself.
    Fender and exhausts are moderate (takes a lot of effort but not challenging).
    Brakes, radiator, ATF, and oil are pretty easy.

      Fwiw CV axles look pretty easy to replace. Slightly harder than brake pads.

    Replaced the head gasket on my Miata. It isn’t too difficult and these engines are pretty simple.
