New Guy from SoCal

Hey everyone, how's it going? Just joined the forum and reason for doing so, as I do research on things for my truck, Google continuously brings me back here. I figured at this point I might as well join.

I just recently purchased a 2016 F-250 Lariat/FX4 and like any other normal human being I can't leave well enough alone. Granted with all the emission's crap on my truck I'm not sure if that is "well enough", but I'll play by the stupid rules. I haven't done anything to my truck, to include making the first payment (that's how short of a time I've had it, LOL!)

Like most, I have big plans for my truck, but I have a wife too. So I'll have to see how much she lets me play. Well she'll let me play, but how much of an earful I get in the process is the real question.

A little about me: I'm a husband and father of 3, baseball and volleyball keep me pretty busy, outside of work. I'm a retired Marine and time permitting, I like to hunt and fish (I'm a displaced Kansan living in SoCal) or jump on my Harley go for a ride...other than that, not much else to say.

I look forward to getting to know some of you all and learning along the way. I promise to use the search function and not ask redundant or dumb questions, unless my search comes up empty.

Have a good one!

Attached is a picture of my truck for your time...

Good Lookin' truck Gunny. I'm in the same boat as far as new to the board and f250. I haven't made my first payment either. I've gotten a lot of tips and advice from these guys. They seem to be good folks. Welcome aboard and howdy from Texas.

Tank - Thank you and I appreciate it the kind words. Oh, how I long for Texas! I tried talking my wife and kids into moving there when I retired back in '14. Once they agreed, I had been offered an awesome job out and couldn't turn it down. Oh well, everything happens for a reason. Enjoy that new truck and congrats on it!

SuperCruty - Thank you, it was my pleasure and an honor! Likewise, thank you for your service. If wasn't for the old salts laying the pathway, us boots wouldn't have had anything to stand on or to continue building upon. I will create my garage as well. Thanks again!

John - Thank you, glad to be here and appreciate the welcome! Have a good one!
