Ok guys, those who want to join in the New Jersey chapter, lets use this post as a meet and greet for everyone to get to know everyone.
My name is Hank, I am in the Army currently a recruiter here in Northfield NJ, which is right outside atlantic city for those who dont know. I was also born and raised here in Northfield. I am 37 Years old. I used to own a 1996 Ford Ranger XLT extended cab and now have a 2004 F-150 XLT extended cab. I am only leasing it right now but do plan on doing the buy out at the end of the lease. Thats it for now. Who's next? hehe
finally got our own chapter. I am moving into malaga during the next month, have a 2004 super duty and a 1969 mustang as my toy. Hope we can get some jersey gatherings together, and maybe some trips up to rouche creek/paragon. (once i get my new tires that is) hello all.
(did we decide if we're gonna let some pennsy folks in here?)
I'm Ken, but I bet you guessed that. I'm right over the bridge from philly and I work at a chemical company as the Quality Control Manager. I currently moderate the Ranger, BII and NJ forum, the NJ forum is only temporary. My signature covers the trucks.

Paul Garvin here,
Like Ken, I work just outside of Philly in Cherry Hill. I am currently moving our company to West Deptford. Also, like Ken, I work for a Chemical company as the Director of Manufacturing. I live in Mount Laurel, again just outside of Philly.
Currently driving a 2004 F250 XLT Sport 4x4 SC LB. Wife drives a 2002 XLT Sport 4x4 Escape. My weekend toy is 69 Cougar XR7 Convertible. My previous trucks were a 73 F250 4x4 HiBoy, and a 90 F150 XLT Lariat 4x4. Look forward to meeting all of the FTE folks in NJ.
I have been a long time member of the CCNJ (cougar club of new jersey). This year we decided to include eastern PA as well. It was a natural fit and has worked out well for the club.

Hey all...my name is John and I live in South Jersey too. I'm actually typing this from my office in Voorhees (right next to the hospital). I'm 24 and the owner of a 1988 Bronco 302. I think I asked enough questions on this site that everyone knows what kind of truck, engine, tranny, problems, etc...
I'm actually buzzing around in a Nissan , but for as much complaining I do about it, I'm saving so much money in gas that the SSMorgan is getting a little extra special treatment when I can. Just put on a new exhaust, and blew it all out after the EGR went. *hitting head on desk* Either way, I wish I could help with moderating, but if it were up to me, we'd still be using smoke signals and typewriters...I hate comps.
How about a meet at one of these Fuddruckers?
Oh, and I'm just putting this in becasue I'm stoked about it. I was in Millville (Cumberland Co.) where the airport is. There's been talk of putting in a race track down there, sprint cars I thought, and all of the residents were complaining plus it would hurt real estate (aka-me), so I saw some guys there on quads and asked, figuring they'd probly know as residents. Tuns out, they were surveyors, using the quads because of the terrain, and it's going to be an SCCA Road Circuit. Like I said, just mentioning it b/c it made my day...I love those races

My name is James. My wife and I live in Union County (on the border of Morris County) in Summit, NJ. I am a computer Network Administrator for a company in New York City and also has a warehouse in East Brunswick.
I have a 1970 F250 4x4 that is my running project truck that I am slowly working on fixing up. It has a rebuilt 360, new brakes, and many other new parts. I plow with it, and I am working on getting the bodywork going to make it look a bit nicer than its current 'look'. It is affectionately known as "Swamp Thing". I think it's pretty self-explanitory how it got it's name.
Setting up a gathering of other FTE'ers sounds like a great idea and a trip out to Paragon sounds like it would be a great time for all!

I'm Frederic, living in Colonia, which in "Jersey Speak" is exit 131 My project is revamping a 93 F350 crewcab from a high mileage, minimalistic 5.8L configuration to a twin-turbo 500cid, power everything configuration. And yes, it iwill pass emissions
If you guys have a meeting at some point between, oh, about Toms River and Mahwah, I'd be happy to take a stroll!
I'm Jim, and I've got a 98 Mazda B4000 4x4 that is my main mode of transportation. I live in North Jersey, mostly around Belleville (148) in Essex County. I grew up in cow country up in Vernon, though, where there are no exit numbers.
As I mentioned before, I'm always up for a Deep Fried Hot Dog meet at Rutt's Hut.

Another Ken here.
I live in Piscataway, not far from Rutgers stadium. I moderate the FTE 1948-60, Y-block, Flathead, and 401,477, 534 SD Engine forums.
Formely a framer and a manufacturing supervisor, I'm currently working as a plater in a hard chrome plating shop here in Piscataway. Recently re-married, I have 1 child from a previous marriage, she has 3. All live with us, so I'm in the middle of a major renovation project.
First, Ken thanks for the forum. As soon as I received the message that we had a NJ forum my computer takes a hike. I'm back, let's use this so we can keep it. O.K. my name is Kevin, and I'm from West Creek, near Atlantic City but closer to Long Beach Island (down the shore).
