I've noticed there's a few of us around! Lets show off our trucks, share some ideas, or just shoot the breeze with current affairs here in our great province or whatever you want to talk about.
To start things off here are some pics of my F-150, taken yesterday. Specs are in my signature. I'm waiting on HD tails and am trying to decide what to do with the headlights. I'm either going to get HDs as well, or possibly save some money up and go with Recon. Not to sure right now. I'm also toying with the idea of trading in on a '12 FX4.
A little bit about myself: My name is Jarrett, 20 years old (21 on the 15th) from Lac La Biche. I am employed by Environment & Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD, SRD, Forestry). I work at the Air Tanker Base in Lac La Biche. It's my 3rd season doing what I do and I really enjoy it. I was unemployed last winter but am really hoping to find some sort of seasonal work this winter coming up!
I'm also a volunteer firefighter in Lac La Biche County and have been for a little over 2 years. It is also something I really enjoy and intend to stay with it for a long time to come. In my spare time I like to go for road trips or do some offroading (nothing to extreme), do some hunting in the fall (bow and rifle), volunteer for community functions, go quading, and play floor hockey.
I am single with no kids, but do have some pets: 2 dogs, a bird, and 4 cats (two outside, two inside), and one recently had 4 kittens.
I like those tires as well, how are they on the highway? my micky T's arn't too bad, I was orginally going with dura tracks but there was a long wait for them up here, a lot of site trucks have the duratracks.
I got RPG uca's on order instead of camburg, there just going into powder coating should be here any day now. Honestly only had them on like a week, but so far so good. Not to mention they pull you outta the mud waaaaaay bettter than the factory pirrellis. I was on the fence between the BFG and Trailgrapplers. Happy with my pick so far. I thought the Alberta thread would fill up faster we are like in the land of the truck.

Here's my truck next to the one I might pull the trigger on. It's a '12 FX4 Ecoboost with every available option in an FX4 (Luxury, Nav, moonroof, spray in liner, etc). I've been given a really good deal on it, and my monthly truck payment + monthly insurance rate I'll only be dishing out $30 more than I am now for my '09 FX4.
However, take a look at my signature and everything I've put into my '09 and I have more on the way (HD taillights, billet gas door, possibly Recon headlights and step bars). I feel like I'd be throwing it all away, does that make sense?
I absolutely love my truck and it was an easy decision to trade my old Sport Trac in on it, but this decision is not an easy one.
