Cool Back

It's been along time since I posted, or read here. Looks like I'll be back for awhile. And I'll need to update my sig. I'll give the short version.

My wonderful 04.5 is no more... took it down a canyon end over end. I'm lucky to be alive. infact, for the most part, I'm unhurt concidering what the truck looks like now. Just some brusing from the seatbelt and my hand I had to use to break the drivers glass while hanging upside down to get out of the truck when it finally stopped tumbling.. no broken bones.. Just minor cuts and bruises.

Frame is bent and not a single body panel is untouched. Passenger glass is intact still lol. Destroyed!!!

But engine and trans are untouched in the wreck. And are built (Many performance upgrades) to withstand about 700 HP or more. I built that truck for reliability. It was a solid ride. loved it. I only needed a turbo to reach my final goal.

The next day I went to the Dealer and bought a brand new 2018 1 ton with all the bells and whistles. Building a new truck, so I thought it would be a good idea to re-introduce myself. The crew that was here awhile ago was a real fun group... I look forward to meeting old friends and new ones too.
