Cool Time to say goodbye as a moderator

As some of you may know I haven't been around as much as I used to.

As the title says it is time I step down as 1st generation Dakota moderator and all Dakota Moderator.

As of January I have been going back to school full time (no work) 3rd semester of 6 days a week of classes. And as of June I bought a 2004 Ford F150 (Ya I know a trader ) the price was right 5.4 V8 300HP, 360Tq. For what money I had the only Dodge I could afford would have been a 2nd Gen Ram with terrible mpg and notorious transmissions. (I got a 5.9 Magnum and auto so I know how it is.)

Since the F150 I haven't been on as much as I should, since I only drive the Dodge about every 3 weeks and only a few blocks, and school is kicking my ***.

With that said I will give up my moderator status to someone else. That someone else who has great knowledge and has been very helpful. He might not have a 1st gen but most of his knowledge applies.

So all welcome Tom A as our new moderator!

I will still be on here, just not as often as I used to.

Soooo, work hard in school, enjoy the Frod, Good Luck, and thanks for everything you contributed!

Thanks all. I've got some really big shoes to fill - Crazy big shoes, as a matter of fact.

Hopefully, I can do the same quality job that Crazy4x4RT has been doing all these years. I'm looking forward to it.

That would be sweet. There must be some other DF members in this area.

Thanks guys! I did a lot of work on here to help everyone out.

Just in case some are wondering the Dakota is not going anywhere, too much love for it. The few times I drive the Dakota, I have a blast. The Dakota is so much faster and WAY taller than the Ford.

You will be missed! But I'm glad you're still hanging around. You've helped me with my stupid questions MANY times.

Good luck on the endeavours!! You've been a huge help in the past few years. I don't think I'd still have my old Dakota if it weren't for your help, and my constant love for that little truck. Even when the old lady's done with it, it isn't going anywhere lol. Thanks for all the info you have contributed, thanks for all your help, and make sure you still pop in!

I swear Crazy, I've gotten so much help from your posts - usually not directly, just reading them over time. You've gotta hang around enough to see what I've put together with all that knowledge! I'll post my Dak project story someday before too long, but I have to condense it first, this has taken a looong time at the pace I work. You get major credit! Thanks man.
