Thank You very much. Brian, I made a trip to Trussville about 2 weeks ago, went to the Trussville Automart, I'm sure you know where that is, I was looking at a 96 Dodge Ram V8 2wd with 170,000 miles, the milage scared me away though, and I got this 02 Ford F150 2wd 4.2L V6 instead(from Carl Gregory in Fort Payne), with only 47,000 miles, GLAD I MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE. I'll try and come in this forum often and keep it goin. Thanks again

Welcome "Bama" to the chapter hood, if you have any question concerning electing a leader spend some time reading what the other chapter's have done, and be sure to try and have a get-together soon...also read this link....it will help with some of your ???? http://www.ford-trucks.com/chapters.php
here's a copy of some of the info from the link.......
Chapters connect FTE members in regions with each other. Through scheduled meetings and events Chapters provide an opportunity for FTE members to interact in person with others on a local level. Get to know the people in your area, learn from one another and build friendships.
Chapter Overview And Rules
In order to start a Chapter you must have minimum of 5 FTE members willing to join. Each member must be an active FTE user for at least 30 days. The member organizing the Chapter must be an FTE user for at least 60 days.
Once the Chapter is formed, you must organize an off-line meeting of the Chapter to elect a Chapter Leader and any additional officers your Chapter may need such as secretary, treasurer, photographer, etc. Each Chapter needs to have one or more persons with a digital camera so Chapter related photos can be maintained in the Chapter Gallery.
The Chapter Leader is responsible for seeking out new Chapter members on the FTE forums (we provide the tools for this), overseeing the organization of events, meetings and gatherings. Additionally, we encourage Chapter members to seek out new members at auto shows, fellow Ford owners in the work place and Ford truck owners you may encounter in your day-to-day life. You may even consider telling local dealerships or auto parts stores about your Chapter.
Chapters may use the FTE logo and domains in unmodified form with prior approval from FTE for each project. Detrimental, malicious, commercial, for-profit or competitive use of the FTE logo or domains is strictly prohibited. If either is used with another logo or domain, permission must be granted in writing.
i hope this helps..good luck.....
