Always had a love for things mechanical and working with my hands. My parents encouraged it along with learning all you can about something. I have more hobbies than I’ll ever have time and money for but I love it anyway. It’s helped a lot to dive into new things that interest me because I’ve been able to find ways to apply seemingly unrelated things together to solve complex problems.
As for my trucks… dad always owned Fords for personal vehicles and switched to them for work trucks too when I was young. My first truck I still own, although it’s been wrecked for years. 00 Ranger that I got new. I found TRS shortly thereafter when I was trying to figure out how to add a tach, which ended up encouraging my desire to play with vehicles. Since my truck was new and expensive (for me at the time) to do anything much to, I ended up buying my 88 Bronco II from a former member on here for $340. The rest, as they say, is history. My collection of these wonderfully capable vehicles has been an adventure.
