Just heard about this board. Anyway, we've been RV'rs for awhile. Moved up from a big diesel-pusher to our current 2006 Weekend Warrior LE fifth-wheel. Drag it around with a slightly modified '05 Chevy Duramax LT CC 4X4. Load it up with dirt bikes, or my '52 MG TD. We live just up the coast from San Diego. look forward to sharing experiences and opinions with you all.

Thanks!

Regarding the truck, I've played around with it a bit. Currently its set up is: Edge EZ, Magnaflow exhaust, EGR blocked, FingerStick, custom cold air box, boost & EGT gauges, Timbrens, Bilsteins & LineX. I was also using a BoostStick, but it seemed a little "softer" on acceleration, so it's not currently installed.

The LE3105 is essentially stock, and I'm ready to start a few simple mods on it. Probably put a valve between the water tanks, and a valve to tie the fuel tanks together. Solar would be nice too.

Inside, we carry a KDX220, CRF100, CRF150, CRF230, and a 400EX.

We typically go to Ocotillo Wells, but will try to get to Spangler Hills for the rally. We plan on going to Spangler Hills or Cuddeback Dry Lake for Thanksgiving.

I'm 48, and on long term leave from my job as an airline captain. Basically retired. Staying home to be with my wife as she deals with a serious health issue, and be with our three kids.

Hope our paths cross under sunny desert skies one day.

Ed

Isn't amazing how much power is added after those mods! After I did the same, it was like I had a new truck.

Hope to meet you at Spangler rally.
