Hello From Riverside

Hey all,

First i must say I love this place, FTE that is...

The story behind the truck- I had a '06 Taurus before this it was a vehicle of necessity, had 12 hrs to find a vehicle so i could not be picky. Anyhow on 3/11/12 I was rear ended by a taxi, destroyed the thing


So with the left over money form the payoff I went looking for what I really wanted, a Ford Diesel. Only one problem was that I knew jack about Diesels, so I went to the web to do some research and came across FTE. Lurked around for a while then finally made a profile so I could ask questions.

On the Truck search I found one for an awesome price pretty close to home, so I went out to check on it. Well when i got there the guys told me that he loaned it out should be back in few days. So i went home dejected and began to look around some more, very little in my price range. After a week or so I gave up on trying to find a truck, and began looking to CHEEP cars until I could build up a bigger down pmt. The saturday before I was about ot make a deal on a car I was going to settle for the first guy calls me back and says"... its on the lot you still interested?". So the next morning I went out to look at it. Using the check lists I got from FTE and my knowledge of trucks in general, it checked out. So I bought this Beast '04 F350 4x4 Crew Cab 6.0L Diesel, 207k miles. Everything I wanted in truck. I found out that they were using to haul some cars back from an action up north. I had already made my decision but that only confirmed it was the right one.


My Story - I grew up i Riverside, when I joined the Marines I vowed to never come back to this forsaken town (ha ha). When I got out 4 years later (forced by injury), I moved around all over the IE eventually settled in Banning for about 10yrs, wife and I split up and I was forced to go back to Riverside and stay with my Dad till I got back on my feet.Long story long I'll be moving back that way this summer, need to be closer to my kids.

As for Hobbies I love to explore, camping, hiking, mountain biking, off road venturing, ect... I also work with leather, tooling all sorts of designs. Eventually gonna try and make a profit by it. Until then I build tradeshow exhibits on site all over socal mostly and all across nation part of the time.

Sorry for being so long winded,
Clayton

Backdraft-14 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Welcome to FTE. As you probably have already realized this is the best site for information on owning a Super Duty.
