Snowbound is on a distinguished road
Default Newbie from Chicagoland

Hello all. Iím Jim and I have an Ď07 Equinox in my arsenal. Iíve owned it since Ď10 and itís been a great vehicle up until recently. I joined the forum to share what Iíve had to do and also to get some advise from others. Iím gonna make a post when I find the right category after Iím done here.

Little history just to throw it out there. I was an ASE certified mechanic for over 14 years. The last 7 of that was mainly heavy equipment, OTR trucks and tug boats. Currently working as a maintenance mechanic for a large chemical company, long story but short version is, I had a truck blow up while I was working on it and it almost killed me. I was burnt up pretty badly and continuing to swing wrenches was playing hell on my skin graphed hands. Iím married and have 3 great kids, 12,10 and 3. Iím mainly a diesel guy but I still work on everything. I have a Duramax as my daily, 89 K5 GMC Jimmy project that I dropped a 6bt Cummins in, a 97 K1500 Centurion Conversion thatís lifted 15Ē sitting on 49Ē tires, recently sold a 99 Denali that I built up like crazy and grabbed a 94 Firebird Formula 6 speed car that Iíve been after for the past few years. Thatís getting an iron 5.3 LS bored to a 5.7 and either a single hairdryer or I still might do twins.

And thatís about it. Look forward to getting involved with the forum. Take care and stay safe.
