    I am new member here, ive been part of ORC for about a year and a half, so I know how a message board gets run, hopefully I dont mess up and make everyone think Im a goofball. RezzyJoe, Willyswanter and MNorby know me and hopefully will attest to the fact Im not a complete moron /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I have a 1983 GMC 4x4 pickup, I repainted the body and fixed up the interior and am slowly but surely turning it into a more off-road oriented truck while working on a budget and retaining reliability. Lastly I want to say thank you in advance for the vast amount of information I will most likly learn while I belong to this board.
    This is what i start out with in October of 2001

    He drives it like that, one tire to steer, one in the air, like hydros, but cheaper. He's working on an in cab control system consisting of rope and 2x4's.

    Heh, yeah Drey's pretty cool, I'll make him buy a membership.

    <font color="green"> Hey Drey, you finally decided that ORC is a lost cause, I see... Welcome to CK5, you'll like it here. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That pic with the jack is pretty damn funny. If there's nothing around that you can flex on, why does flex even matter? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif </font>
