I have a '90 GMC Sierra SLE, which I have owned for six years. I'm married (40 years), three kids and 5 grandkids. I just retired two months ago after 29 years as a full time technician in the Nevada Air National Guard, 22 years as an Aircraft Propulsion Mechanic on F-4s and C-130s, and the last 7 as a Quality Assurance Specialist. I have always worked on my own vehicles, and still do. My username comes from my work on C-130's, where engine/prop power is measured in in.lb's of torque, rather than horsepower, a full power setting being referred to as maximum torque. My avatar is a representation of a C-130 engine and prop, and is actually a 6-foot mural on the wall of the Engine Shop.

Thanks for all the welcomes (you too MadHatter :) ). My truck is just stock, nothing out of the ordinary, but I will post pics once I have some body work done. Someone backed into the driver's door several weeks ago, caved it in pretty good, and I need to have that fixed first.
