Stuff that doesn't pertain to PWs and general chit-chat

Hey everyone, great place you have here! Found it while trying to find a programmer that actually does something.
I have a 2016 Power Wagon (the drop down list to register only goes to 2014?), got just over 13k miles so far and the new car smell is just starting to wear off.
At the moment it is stock other than some decal replacement/removal, deleting the rear resonator, and a drop in K&N air filter with some Husky floor liners as well.
The to do list includes black bumpers, leveling kit, 2017 wheels with 35's, and a decent exhaust that makes this thing sound like it actually has a V8 in it lol.
This is my 1st Mopar, been a chevy guy my whole life with a brief stint having a toyota tundra, but I had a duramax at the same time.
Haven't been on a forum of any kind in years, so it might take me a bit to get the hang of this again
Thanks for having me.

Welcome. Yes, the forum is on auto pilot, and the admin and updates are MIA. But there is still a great group of people here. Like you I was a long time chevy guy myself with some dabbling in Audi's and Fords. You'll love the truck.

Thanks everyone. Tried uploading a picture but I can't figure out the code, and since posting requires an admin to approve it, including edits, I'm done trying lol.
As my schedule clears (just started a new job) you will probably see more of me.
