Newbie from Corpus Christi

Morning all, Ron "Gunner" Retzlaff here. I'm a newbie to, but not to forums. I'm a retired United States Navy, Chief Gunners Mate. I served this Great Nation for 24 years and would do it again in a hot New York minute if she called upon me for help.

I'm a biker cowboy and wear my Ariat boots, Cinch jeans and Harley jacket with pride while on my 2010 Road King Classic. I am a very proud owner of the "Big White Beast" a 2011 F-250 6.7L King Ranch FX4 4x4 Crew Cab. She stickered for $56,600 and I took it off the lot for $41k after they gave me more for my trade and knocked $13k off the sticker. Before that, while the wife was lusting after it, I was telling her "there is no way in Hell, that I'm paying that much for this truck!". Thankfully, Stephanie Knief (Access Ford Corpus Christi) came along and proved Mrs. Gunner right and me wrong. I traded my 2007 F-150 5.4L King Ranch 4x4 in on this one and they gave me $9,500 more than I owed on her.
