Howdy

New guy here (duh!), living in Wisconsin.

Actually joined to follow Big Dave. I met him on a diesel forum and liked what he's done.
It was his inspiration that I built my own bed cover, and am working on an air dam. I'll post a little on those later.

Yep. Thought I had that in my sig, guess not.
It's not a power house, but it gets me from point A to point B. And it gives me something to tinker with.

Maybe Big Day

Hi Dan Though if I was a smoker I wouldn't be doing the conversions to direct bro. I am new too. Not a barn stormer though ... I used to see the covers that popped from remote mounted switch in the GB. I loved those switches there remotely in place. Nice to see ya. Sorry to lose any present currents in style. But I seen some around.
