Yeah, avatar is probably not the best term - as it is not at all like the movie dealeo...
Anyway, just above my login name is a small photo of The Van.
Your "Avatar" can be anything-literally-as long as it fits The Forum Guidelines.

It has to be 100 x 100 pixels or smaller and is user definable-there are none available via The Forum:
- located in the "User Control Panel".
- "Profile" tab
- "Edit avatar"

I found the hardest part of it was getting an existing pic reduced down while maintaining quality.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... "Shaun King / BLM" are wanting to start taking down Religious / White Jesus / European Mother depictions in Churches - he feels that they were created as RACIST OPPRESSION & PROPAGANDA...

Trolls take away from productive work, best to starve the troll of attention by ignoring it and going about your business.

AW did you see the alternator I have coming? It is a USA made beast!!
No more worries bout burning up the 12000lb Warn winch, they still don't recommend running the winch with the ac and fan running though

If anyone is paying attention:
Put the truck up on the lift and decided I do not have the time to finish the under part of the van before I start Fishing so it will have to wait until January. I will do the rocker repair though.
I am doing the rear duel piston calipers and some cosmetic things, new door seals (especially the slider which greatly attributed to the rocker situation)
Might install some pillar gauges and investigate the super charger further. I will do things that I can and not have the van down for more than a day or 2 through the middle of December.
High output alternator will be in on Friday, still have not made a battery choice, so the beat goes on!!

Security screening finally done and off the original build list. Not getting into the back with out a demo saw. You can break a window, latch on with a chain and all you will do is drag the van.
