    To set this up right, a little background. Things are a bit financially tight for me or I would be a member already. That said, people here have been so amazingly nice and helpful that I can't wait to join the community. I met Mtnman and learned he is living close to me (well close enough to wheel over) He invited me over to work on our trucks and maybe rock climb a bit. I had a blast and even learned a lot. About 10 miles from his house my fuel pump castasrophically fails and I am not very close to home and I have the "Daily Driver" so don't have a way for my wife to bring me parts. Mtnman drove out with a spare pump and fittings and his mobile garage. We froze (yes it gets cold in AZ in the mountains) and got my baby up and running. I had heard the cliche` "would give you the shirt off his back..." I think he wants to make sure its a shirt you like and that it fits. Thanks to MtnMan you are Da Man. :bow: Look forward to wheeling with you soon!!!

    With all the bad news you see on TV and the internet it is good to hear a story with a happy ending :D Just think how great the world would be if everyone would stop thinking about themselves once in a while. ;)

    yeah, Travis aka mtnman is really one of the best people I've ever met. His family (wife, children, parents, dogs etc) are all great and would help another person out in a heartbeat. Travis has helped me out in so many ways I could never repay him. He is THE MAN :D
