In re-reading my post, i'm not sure if my intent was clear. I was in no way denigrating or putting down the owner or the company, but only trying to pass on info I've read on the 'net.

Normally I wouldn't post that above paragraph, but recently there have been some issues with me communicating my thoughts clearly and I wanna make sure you understood I wasn't talking bad about your friend or his company.

Crud, and here I was cracking my knuckles getting ready to talk a little smack about the new "side step" you had installed!

I may be able to swing and get them both installed, but I am almost thinking that that would be overkill.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
Thank you all for the feedback! After doing some reading here and elsewhere, I think I will pass on the AirDog system and just get the Driven Diesel system.

Now I am counting down the days until I break the bank account once again

It's really nice, that steering wheel went into this project truck.

Drove 800 miles and it was awesome, Orlando, fl to Paducah, ky. Taking the big hills in TN on I-24 was awesome and having some "stuff" behind the 3rd row made it ride even nicer. On the way to Grain valley, MO for the FTE 6L get together.

The Ex has been driving fine since having the seals replaced on the tranny. Very happy with the work that my guy did out east of where I live. Definitely worth the effort to get the rig out to his shop.

In other news, Police recovered my Honda yesterday. It was found across the street from my apartment complex. Was parked in front of someone's house in a private community and the homeowner didn't call it in until yesterday. Thief only took what they could with no tools, so I am out a 10 year old subwoofer and two old and/or cheap amps. The rest of the car was intact. Looks like they used a shaved key to break in and drive away. The only damage was them breaking the plastic dash insert around the deck, but they couldn't take the deck because I have it connected to the firewall with steel cable

Glad it is back in one piece, as it is nice to have a fuel efficient alternative to the Ex.

The local news reported last night and this morning that the Seattle area has had a large amount of recently stolen Hondas and that thieves are taking them over to Bremerton on the ferry and leaving them there. If you live in the Seattle area and own a Honda, I suggest investing in a clutch/brake lock or something similar if you don't have something similar. I had another Honda stolen a few years ago and didn't think it would happen to me again, but I was wrong. Doesn't hurt to take some extra measures to hold on to your belongings.

Welcome to my world... I'm lucky enough in my current job situation to be able to wait out rush hour most days, at the expense of working later into the evening, which isn't always ideal. Sure beats sitting in gridlock for 90 minutes (sometimes more) both ways every day. Haven't found any real good way to win against Seattle area rush hour.

I swear Honda uses only about 5 different key cuts. The key in my old Honda would work in my neighbors car and I would move it around to mess with him.

It would work in others sometimes too.

Dad and I had the same thing happen back in the 80's with a '79 T-Bird and a '78 LTD...they both used the same Ford ignition key, but the trunk keys were different. I'm sure you young kids don't remember the days of ignition and trunk keys being two different keys...LOL

Nah, my '97 Town Car had a separate key for the trunk. Of course the previous owner didn't know where it's at, so if the electric trunk release stops working I'll be out of luck. I wonder if a dealer could make me another one?

I remember the two keys for one car days. Heck, I hate carrying ONE key around. Glad two of my vehicles have door codes.
