Mods, please move this if it is in the wrong spot.
So, I have been following this forum for quite a while, but only recently joined. About me, I am currently serving in the Army at Ft Carson. I have been in for almost 8 years and seem to be stuck in a rut as far as my career, but that is neither here nor there. I am from Eastern NC (Cape Banker, MOMIKED, and "My Lord Honey" are all part of my every day vocabulary). I grew up off shore game fishing, salt water fly fishing, and riding horses. I don't like dingbatters or dit-dots. People that have "salt life" stickers on their windows are posers and don't even get me started on those da*n "local" stickers!
My truck: 2006 F350 SRW, CC, FX4, XLT with 230,000 miles. It is bone stock for now, but my immediate plans are a leveling kit, 35's on stock wheels, and some bags in the rear. Long term, an engine swap is in order, but rest assured that it will be bulletproofed and monitored. No performance except for an Edge CTS, intake, and exhaust. The exterior is a bit rough, so I think a Rhino paint job will fix that.
The interior is in the same shape with rips in the drivers seat which will be replaced with either a cloth seat or an entire tan leather interior. I would like to put in a navigation head unit (double-din) with a backup camera and some engine monitoring if possible. I don't do audio, stock is fine for me, so don't expect tons of base and expensive speaker boxes.
If anyone has any suggestions, let me know! I am an awesome aircraft mechanic and have quite a bit of diesel experience, so I don't think anything is out of the realm of possibility.
I look forward to getting to know y'all and maybe even meeting some of you in person. I come from a pretty big Jeep family, so meet and greets are big with them. Maybe a "suds and grub" one weekend would be a nice way to break the ice
Also, anyone that knows the good fly fishing spots ... feel free to PM me anytime!
