New guy from Colorado

Just joined the forum. I have been looking for a PSD as an upgrade from an F150 for a couple of months now, hoping to get into one soon!

Glad to be apart of such a great community!

Thanks for all the responses! I'm up in Boulder, and I'd love to join up with everyone else from Colorado! I can't wait to upgrade to a diesel, the F150 just isn't cutting it anymore.

Do you all in the CSP do any meetups or anything like that?

As often as we can! Which unfortunately isn't as often as it used to be with everyone being so busy these days, but we still manage! A few of us got together at Truck Fest this past weekend.

Awesome, well keep me updated on when you are meeting again and I'll try and meet up. I'd love to talk about diesels before I get one, I'm sure you all have some great insight and tips.
