Welcome to all of my fellow Tri-Cities members.

I thought that a place where we could randomly chat about things in our little corner of the world would be helpful. Like a side conversation between meetings. Just a free form casual chat.

Please feel free to tag members in the area.

How many members have families with children in here? I have 2 girls and a boy. My son is 18, daughter one is 17, and daughter 2 is 15. The older two live with their mom in Colorado Springs, while the youngest lives with me and her mom. My 15 yo loves shooting, camping, and being eccentric. While my other 2 would rather be playing video games.

Yikes! Diesels hurt when they have problems. I had a 2012 Duramax. Had problems with the DEF system. Looks like Cummins has ghosts in the system also.
Hang in there.

I put one of those kits together for one of my co workers a few years back. Pretty good kit, it took a little trimming to get it to fit the pickup to my liking. The instructions said to tack the frame mounts to the center section, mount it to the truck, then tack each side together on the bench then attach to the center. I tried that and the fitment was crap. Took it apart and put it together piece by piece while bolted up and it turned out pretty nice with minimal trimming. For the price I think they're worth it if they have something you like and you have the skills to put it together. I've thought about getting one for my Ram. I'll see if I can find some finished pictures of the one I put together.

I guess that's the only pic I have. It was for an '04 Chevy. 20160114_134001.jpeg
