I see that when someones broke down he post's that's kinda cool.
I also belong to Steel Soldiers a website for military vehicle owners, they have although not updated recenlty a memeber locator map, just a general town or area, I didnt post a pin on my house, just the mearest big town to me. That may be handy for those who wish to help or need assitance. I met a guy in Sheyboygan who was super cool, and helpful.

I've always been a FORD guy damn near since birth. Though I work well with my hands I am no where close to being a mechanic. I keep having torturous events happen to me at my local dealership, events that have wrecked 2 family vacations and put their safety at risk, if they would only tell me the truth when I drop my truck off we would be ok. A man is only as good as his word!! PERIOD! I almost gave up on FORD this past week, you guys brought me back home. Thank You. Does anybody know of a good and honest 7.3 mechanic around the San Bernardino, CA area? I am going to see where Holtville is and check out John Wood. But if there is anyone in town any of you would recomend, I'm listening.
That's a great post Springer, obviously as a complete newbie to this forum I am struck by the sense of comraderie you all share.
As I mentioned in one of my first posts, I have been very active on a hunting forum for years with a similar vibe as here, not that much bitching, and we all take care of each other around the country, sounds like a similar experience to this place.
This place rocks.......I have been reading for about 3 days straight.
I gotta say, i really like the people here. In the short time ive been here, /ive got lots of great advice and been walked through problems that would have cost me an arm and a leg. Just a different breed of people willing to help each other out.
There is one exception though. Try going to the V10 vs PSD thread and spouting your 2 cents for the PSD. I just stirred up the crowd over there. LOL!!
