new guy from chicago subs

Hey everyone! My name is Red and I live in the suburbs of Chicago.

I'm a firefighter/paramedic and I love every minute of it.

I like guns, I own many pistols and rifles. Anything from old military stuff to new top of the line stuff. I play paintball and enjoy my time with my computer haha.

As far as my truck, I just bought it. LIKE TODAY! I want to be out driving it but alas I am stuck at work

I bought a used Ford F350 XLT 4x4 6.0L turbo diesel. Its a dark green, almost black when you get the right angle. No mods to it, YET! I love the sound and how it drives. I've never owned a diesel before so its a learning curve, my last car was a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI.

So I will be around here learning and asking questions, i'd love to get the truck all mod'd out.

Well enough of me boring you, Thanks for reading!

Red

Almost forgot, pictures!

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

Several things to take a look at:
1. Illiana Strokers - Chapter for the Illinois / Indiana members - Could meet members local to you.

2. 03-07 6.0L Powerstroke Forums - Lots of information about 6.0Ls

3. Since you are a first responder, we have ways we recognize your service. If you scroll up to fdchief's post above, you'll see a Emergency Services badge in the header of his post. To get one for yourself, go up to the black nav bar, click on User CP. Once on that page, in the left column, you'll see under Networking, a link to Group Memberships. Click that. It will take you to a page to show group memberships available. On the right side of Emergency Services there is a button to click. After clicking that, click on "Join Group" in the lower middle of that section. A private message (PM) will be sent to the moderator responsible for adding you.

Thanks for the welcomes everyone.

Nice rig Fdchief, I am super jealous. I'd love to get mine set up with lights, but I don't think my dept would go for that.

Thanks supercruty, I am going to get that badge right now! And also thanks for the other links. I've already started snooping around.
