    PROBLEMS !!!!!!

    Definitely don't give. I am in the same shape you're in. I got my pup for $400 and was all set to start the remodel when snap, snap & snap - three cables busted. I am waiting for my last shipment of lift cables and I am going to jump into my upgrades. Show your pup who's the boss!
