    I think its going to be a really good year. Its cool to see someone else from McHenry here. Based off of the winter we had last year, the fact that my grass is still green, and weekly rain storms I see another good winter headed our way!

    Ha, your a funny guy. :cool:



    Last winter brought the suck, at least I should have found 98% of my problems.

    This winter I'm only worried about my trans and my trans and uhh I think that's all that I know may have an issue. My new drivers door has already been broken in by what looks like a stray shopping cart so I've got the first dent out of the way.




    Edit, Weeman got any pics of the new ride?

    Nice cap, it needs bigger mirros, and your hemi ram sticker is crooked.

    ya i did not put the hemi stickers on. the cap will be coming off when not needed.(saved my butt at country thunder this past week). trailer mirrors, smoked LED clearance lights on order. torn between fisher V, or boss V. and the truck has my 285x70x17 MTR's on it now

    I've ran a 9.2ft boss poly v on an 06 f350, it was nice but not my thing. I may have not been used to it or something because I'm pretty sure I was more productive in my truck with my straight blade and wings. Never tried a fisher v though.

    What about a blizzard?
