Hello fellow PACNWer's, my name is Mike, and I'm new here. Back in Aug I picked up a 2005 F350 CC LB SRW. Traded in my 2007 F150 Lariat. This was my first diesel, but since I bought it I also have bought a 2013 TDI Jetta. Guess the diesel bug bit me. My other toy is a 2001 Audi S4, twin turbo 2.7L 6spd with quattro. Mildly built, but a lot of fun.
So a little about me, I work full time for the Oregon National Guard, doing property management and logistics for the 41IBCT. I've served for 15 years, and am a SSG/E6. Have yet to deploy, but am on the hook this next winter/spring time.
Married and two kids, hobbies are mostly automotive. I do all my own wrenching, and help other VW/Audi guys. I also do detail work on the side. I hope to learn a lot about PSD's, and maybe one day can offer help like a lot of you guys do. Much like my Audi, I've learned 6.0's are very picky on maintenance, and I have already be bitten by it.
Back a couple months ago, had one of my batteries fail, so I replaced both, but soon after my FICM died. So now I have a fresh rebuilt FICM, (thanks FICMREPAIR.COM) with a PHP altas 40 tune. Only mod I've done so far, besides audio inside the cab.
I don't plan on doing much, as I will be using the truck for hauling a car trailer and most likely a camper at some point. But I would like to get a custom tune and exhaust. Then most likely a level kit.
Sorry for being long winded (typing??) I hope to become a member, not sure just how many GTG's I could make, but I'll try.
Here's the only pic I have of my truck at them moment, from my phone the day I brought it home.
