Hello from Afghanistan / Alaska

Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. My name is Ryan I recently purchased my first PSD while down range (2003 F250) I have been around turbo cars for a long time but wanted to get into trucks since I am a avid hunter and my wife has taken claim to our other Ford. The truck had 190k when i bought it. I have since done a fabtech 4'' lift fabtech dual stabilizer kit, magnaflow exhaust, airaid intake, superchips flashpaq tuner, autometer EGT and Boost gauge. I am learning as much as I can about these trucks and look forward to sharing things with everyone. I am married to an amazing woman and we have 3 kids (2 are her younger brother and sister who we have custody of to keep them out of foster care). I am currently on my 3rd deployment and should be heading home here in the next 2 weeks. I can say this much Afghanistan is a whole different beast than Iraq but I wouldnt change my decision to serve in the military.

My wife and family live in Anchorage, AK and are hopefully going to be heading down to fort lewis next year if I can get it as an assignment.
