Default THE new guy...lol

hey guys, well i guess i should have put this up before i started goin thru the forum and commenting on posts but oh well. tdrive invited me on so again special thanks to him. i'm currently deployed to afghan for a year and am getting my first diesel on monday or tuesday (explain this a little further down), i'm from Newbern TN but based out of Langley AFB VA, i will be movin back to west TN after the deployment (seperating from the military), i'm pretty big into drag racing (you can check out the team i'm a part of, they are waiting for me to seperate to actively rejoin the team, just you tube wild rat racing), i like to help other people out and as long as i'm not working i will be more than willing to come help ya work on your vehicles or build some s*!t lol (i worked construction for about 5 years before i joined the military), i love to ride so if you ride and live within 6 hours of west TN i'll probably see ya some time.

ok on to the truck
monday or tuesday my parents are pickin up the 96 2500 4X4 i bought, i'd pick her up myself if i wasn't deployed.

-trans is rebuilt and under warranty still, the guy took it to the shop to get a clean bill of health for me and have the shop transfer the warranty to my name before he hands the keys over to me

-stock height (not goin much over this due to gonna be towing alot with it)

-straight piped 7" stacks

-4:10 gears

-new hub assembles, front u-joint's, and calipers

-IP replaced with the engine install

-256,000 on everything but the above listed thats new

I like everything but the stove pipes. Just not a stack lover.

thanks guys. i've pretty much always been a fan of stacks. just not the god awfully over sized ones. but im also gonna do a custom made electric cutout that flows to a muffled pipe tucked up where you cant see it. it will be for when i'm in states that b!*tch about loud pipes, or for when i'm towin horses and various other animals
oh yeah i forgot to mention i dable in RC cars and was 2 weeks shy of graduating from industrial maintenance when i came into the military to ba a telecomm lineman/radio tower installation and maintenance tech. so i can do a few things with electronics and such. when i get home i'm gonna build an electric high idle switch. the way i plan on doin it the servo that moves the throttle should be pretty small. if it's successful maybe the other 12 valve guys will want one
