another newb!

What's going on guys! Finally a member after stocking the org for a while LOL just finished reading up on the medics bulletproofing of his ex, nice build! I just bought my first diesel about a week ago, its a 06 f-250 4x4 with an afe stg2 cold air, mbrp 4" with dual 5" tips, and an edge attitude that I'm getting rid of soon, lifted 3" running on 33's. It's got 122,000 on it and i picked it up for 14k, how did I do? I know a little about diesels, and have been working with tools for about 10 years now. Looking forward to learning more about this beast! Also, find me on trx450r.org as 450r duner
