Brown County, Indiana
Trying to advance my hobbies into professions while playing soccer mom
to 4 kids. Wife is Director, Advanced Engineering Controls and
Diagnostics at Cummins, Inc (no, I can’t get a test engine installed
in my truck)—I quit the marines after ten years for my current
Boat design and construction—built 7 or 8 boats always a couple under
construction somewhere, studied under Westlawn School of Yacht Design
and have several designs up to 50’; writing—2 novels written, not
published yet and always got a few stories in the works. Also did the
Airframe portion of an AMT back in ’97 just to kill a year while my
wife finished grad school.
about your vehicle and modifications:
1989 B2 frame getting an ’83 B2 cab. D35/8.8, 4.10s with lockers,
4.0/M50D, Superwinch Epi 9.0. Suspension is an old type Duff with
extended arms and shock hoops—except the hoops are raised 2.5” for
longer shocks and the Duff 400ppi springs were replaced with 240ppi
Ranch XJ springs. Front coils are bagged to support an old steel
snowblade on a home-fabbed mount. Also have an ’88 Chevy crewcab
I’ve installed a Banks turbo and Gear Vendors splitter on. Have the
D60 and NP205s for the ‘88, a couple extra 6.2 diesels, extra Banks
turbo set-up and other parts—might put it in the B2 during this build,
still don’t know where this is going.
long you've been a member of TRS?
2001, I think. It was a text-only thing at the time anyway. Have been a
tech advisor and then magazine editor and now am a moderator.
