    Thanks! Happy to be here. Got lost of plans for this truck upgrades/fixes etc. Will try to keep up with before/after pictures for each fix I complete.

    Is there a spot for that around here? So I can just start a running thread for my truck a "log" book I guess?

    What's the "rules" on question asking exactly? I was in the General Tech area and found a thread that was the same topic I have a question about, but should I start a new thread for my specific question or should I just ask it in a similar thread?

    Well.. there's a page that people can look at to see "new posts". If you post on an old thread.. then it will show up on that page and (i dont know about others) but i look at the "new posts" page more than i do anything else to see what people are talking about recently

    Welcome and congrats on your new ride!!!

    As for your question regarding asking if you should start a thread; it might be easier and better for you to start a your own thread. More than anything, it will help keep you organized and the people responding will be responding relative to your topic/question for the majority of the posts.

    Very cool!! It sounds like you've got your priorities in order!! So did you order anything exciting for the truck? I'm a girl who loves packages coming in the mail so I'm likely to be excited for you on what ever you ordered LOL.

    Well, welcome to the club and congrats on the new ride, sure does look pretty!
