    I spent 2 days getting my rig ready for Hollister, and it still broke. the battery mount failed and welded the battery to the fender, setting a fire both in the cab and the engine bay. Greg sprang into action and put out the fire.

    Everyone pitched in and got me running again.

    I also would like to say thank you to everyone, Joe, Mike (all of them/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif) Greg and the Greg's truck crew, Tony, Marcus, Scott, and anyone else who i forgot or didn't see working thier asses off to get my rig back on the road.

    Glad to hear they got you going.
    Sure is a nice feeling when everyone helps you out and it feels just as good to help someone else out.

    Would you be talking about greg72? Did he use a little red fire extinguisher? If so, I am glad I gave him those extinguishers.

    So Greg used the new extinguisher already, now I will have to have it filled for him. No problem since my buddy does it for a living.

    yup, it was Greg72's extinguisher and NoSmog73 (Mike) also.

    I actually would like to order on form your buddy, 4X4HIGH, I'll PM you later today to try to set something up, if that is ok.

    The tranny line is going to be a bit of a problem, so it will have to wait till the whole thing comes out. The credit card companies are gonna love me /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Didn't sombody catch one on fire last year at the Hollister run? What is it about that place and GM's? A burb burnt to the ground a couple months ago out there. Pictures showed up on another site.
    Glad to hear it's not to bad and nobody got hurt or you lost the truck.
