Another WV newbie

A moderator from the introductions forum pointed me to this forum. I did not know about the different chapters on this site... very cool.

Anyhow, I just recently retired my 1984 Ranger (297k miles) in favor of a 2004 F250 Crew Cab gasser (5.4L).

Also, I've been restoring a 1975 Stroppe Bronco for the past several years and this is where my username comes from.

I'm from Pocahontas County... lived here all my life except for the 5 years I was in Montgomery going to college.

I posted some pics in my other intro thread...

Welcome to the chapter, you are over there in the mountains for sure.

That Fomoko1 is one quick Canadian.

What town are you close to?

1975StroppeBaja, you would get along with a friend of here in Milton. I helped him put a Centech wiring harness in an 70-something he rebuilt ground up!

That's cool! I'll probably be putting the Centech in mine when the time comes. I think its not as pricy as the painless harness.

I have looked at the "painless" on line but never had one in hand. I like the fuse box on the painless if it is as pictiren over the "centech".
One thing, if you are changing the steering column like my friend you may want to call and talk to Centech about what harness you need. It took me about 8 hours to figure out the retrofit of the new harness and later model column.

How much snow did you get in Arbovale yesterday?
We had about 7" by the time it quit last night.

We ended up with about 6" here, then it got down to 4 degrees last night!

Thanks for the heads up. I'm not changing it out on this one but its good to know anyway. I have a '69 half cab that I might get to one of these days.

I figured you would have much more than that up there.
I guess Snowshoe would have gotten a lot more though.

Well it looks like the next storm is here.

Are we ready?

Yeah I think they were up to 12"+ up on Snowshoe. I also heard some of the bear hunters talking about pushing snow with their bumpers up in the mountains near here.

Its snowing out there right now. Not sure how much we're supposed to get with this one!
