Although both cars (and trucks) and fishing rods are products of modern technology and use similar materials, we’ve fairly noticed that cars have a nasty tendency to break and/or lose fishing rods. The minute your rod gets near a truck, the rod is in danger of being mugged.
If you put a rod on top of the truck while you take off your boots, we promise you that one day you will drive off with the rod on the roof and the rod will fly off and be lost forever (if not crushed by the truck behind you).
Skip the expensive bill at the dealership, and just get the electronic sensors and diesel engine parts you need directly from a supplier. At Prosource Diesel, based out of Fairfield, California, they offer new diesel parts and electronic sensors for individuals and shops.
Other Common Rod Breaks
If you lean a rod against your truck’s tailgate or rear bumper, it will someday find a way of wedging itself into the hinge of the trunk or tailgate. When you close the trunk or tailgate, you will be reminded of the rod’s location by the crunching sound that it makes as it breaks in two.
If you try of putting the rod on the vehicle’s floor beside the front passenger seat and placing the rod so that its tip is pointing toward the back seat, we can almost guarantee you that you will break off the rod tip someday. Basic rule of thumb: If a rod can be broken by putting it in or near your truck, the rod will be broken.
Rod Wrecking Car Disease
If you don’t have a rod rack specifically designed to hold your rod on the hood and/or roof of your car, the best cure for “Rod Wrecking Car Disease” is to break down (disassemble) your rod and put it in a case.
