And I am back!

Hey everyone been a while since I have shown my face on here and thought I would stop in.

Everything has been going good. Been working in Grand Rapids for Mill Steel as their Network Admin and head of IT since June and commuting from Big Rapids. So the wife and I are on the hunt for a new house down south of GR to minimize my commute a bit.

Oh ya forgot to mention that I got married this past September. Wow geuss I have been gone for awhile.

The truck has seen some better days. The weekend before Christmas the truck was broken into and the stole pretty much anything aftermarket off the truck. (Edge Tuner, Indash nav and dvd, xm radio, amps, capacitors, sawed all the off-road lights off the front bull bar and roof (after trying to actually remove the bars to no avail) smashed out the front topper glass and rear window making it look like nothing had happened to the truck from the outside) Oh and not to mention all the Christmas presents loaded in it for the trip north.

Truck is running a little rough. Had a number six misfire show up one day cleared the code and it hasn't come back but still feel the truck stutter. No dummy light at all even when the misfire code was up. Only other thing i can think of is maybe some loose wiring on the MAF is making it cut out when i hit bumps in the road.

Other than that everything is good. hows everyone been doing? Glad to be back.

No doesn't hate me yet (not home enough with work and the commute)

Ya we are looking pretty hard right now with Rich's fiance.

We need a place by end of April when Caitlin is done at Ferris. Hopefully once we get down there I can get together with all of you and get this truck figured out.

Hey nice to meet ya. If you move this way, there is always beer in the fridge for a fellow FTE'er. And don't listen to Rich - I won't charge YOU to use the hoist. Just Jeeps.

Thanks sounds good. May have to take you up on the hoist.

Drove the truck to Greenville yesterday to get the new stereo put in and they cant start it now. They are saying that they cant jump it and the starter just clicks. Anyone in the area that could go take a quick look and see if they are just crazy

Hey Mike, do you charge yourself for putting YOUR Jeep on the hoist......


Hey wait, that hoist came from your buddy that you helped engineer the long travel kit on right......oh never mind you get my point.

Glad you're back on Andrew, looking forward to you being closer!!

Can't wait to get down there and back into the scene. Truck has been neglected since I started working in GR. No place to work on it or time to drive it.
