I know I'm still a newbie around here and Fred appears to be a post monger but all in all Fred's really a great guy. Between Fred and another friend from the Truck Club we belong to, these 2 guys are a couple of the best backyard mechanic's I've ever known - and coming from an old fart like me, that has been a lot of them! LOL

To give ya an example here's a couple pict's I took one day at Fred's old house - we sorta had a Daytona Day there...






Fred I just want you to know that I'm forever Thankful for all that you've done for me and for everyone else - I just wish there were more people like you around......

I agree Fred is an outstanding fella...I have learned a lot reading his posts and it helped me a lot with my previous truck..I also thank him for everything he has done on this forum...I always wanted to be as fast as him but I knew it wasnt going to happen so I went out and bought a 03 Cobra..

thanks for the kind words fellas...it's been a fun an learning experience for me as well, I've only done oil/spark plug/brake pad changes before I bought my truck... but like the field I work in, tearing apart and building pcs an servers, I just started tinkering with the ram..one little thing here, 1 new mod there and 25+ cam swaps later, I have a better understanding on what makes these hemi's tick (not literally ), it's been a fun journey up to this point...thanks for sharing those pics Neil as I don't have them...I'll share more of the fun times as this thread grows

the internet and especially forums like this has opened anew world to me in terms of our hemi rams....it didn't even start out that way for me... luckily a dodge dealer was the closest dealer to me when I was in an impulsive buyin mood for a full size truck...was gona check out ford and chevy but they made me a deal I couldn't pass up... then I just followed forums on modding and followed what the faster guys were doing..and then as luck would have it... another member a few states away offers to come to my house and do my 1st cam swap, after that I just went nuts! became addicted to modding and meeting fellow members such as neil, who was a part of an active local group... before you know it, we were installing cams outside in the dead of winter, using my propane bbq grill as a heater (of course that was the first and last time we'll do that again, lol), from now on it's garages of fair weather for installs
