I mod another forum, and I know how one giant thread will slow it down, so I thought we cound have one thread where we could introduce ourselves. Members old and new ......

Anyway, I'll start things off and hope the rest will follow suit.

I'm Eric, and I'm in East TN. Seyomour. (between Knoxville and Sevierville)
I'm on my second PSD, just purchased....in my sig. Needs a tranny, :censored::censored: won't go there now.

I work in Knoxville, for the most part, and I travel all of East TN, and some of GA, VA, & KY for my job. Not in a PSD though. 2005 Caddilac CTS. :scuffy

I play guitar, :punk::headbang1:, and I have a beautiful girlfriend who loves to hear me play guitar, and to hear the bully dog exhaust on my PSD. She also likes driving it, and ain't scared of it...:thumb:

Anyway, I'm a very helpful guy with many talents. Pretty mechanical under the hood, and willing to help a guy out, ( but not carry them on my back ) If anybody is out this way and the snowball from hell happens and your PSD breaks, give me a shout. (Chris has a members list and numbers, I'm not posting on here for all to to see.)

Hey ya'll, I am Gator Werner and have been married to my beautiful wife Darla for 13 years. We have four great kids and a beautiful grandbaby her mname is Delilah. She is 19 months old. My oldest daughter is Christina she is attending college. My oldest son is in the US Army assigned to the 2nd Ranger battalion in FT.

I have been a wrench monkey forever, I retired from the Army in 1996. The first 2 years in the Army I worked on Nuclear Missiles, then spent the rest of my career spinning wrenches and blades on the UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopter. I am a pretty good fabricator, and my the pad for my 1200 sq ft shop is being poured as I type this. If anyone is out my way and needs a hand give me a hollar and I will be more than happy to lend a wrench and the use of the shop.

This is my first PSD, but will not be my last. (even though it is giving me a fit right now). (LOL). I have owned and built four wheel drives all my life. I originally grew up all over Florida and we love our muck trucks down there. My PSD is a White 1999.5 F-250 7.3L DIT, mods include Road Armor front bumper, 12,500lb winch, Superchip tuner, JVC Stereo system, Bushwacker fender flares, gooseneck hitch, backup camera, 10inch Superlift Suspension lift w/2in over stock spring hangers for a total of 12 inches, 39.5 Radial Super Swampers with MT-1 Alloy rims. Mods to come; Adrenaline HPOP, Stage 1 injectors, Steel Cowl Hood, rear bumper to match front, new exhaust system.

Hope to meet ya'll soon and put some faces to names.
