  1. Here is a link to the go fund me fundraiser that we have set up https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-for-tow-truck-jim?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1
  2. As tow ops we work side by side with first responders, we risk our lives and deal with the same dangers they do. Most first responders do consider us first responders because we do this, and a lot of times they couldn’t do what they do without our help. That being said I DO believe we should be considered first responders, however I also believe there should be training and certifications that should be required before before receiving this designation, and this training must be kept up. I am a big supporter of industry training. Take a look at all the tow ops that have been injured and could have been prevented with the proper training, knowledge, and skill set.
  3. A friend of mine was in an accident back in June. He was driving his tow truck and had a medical emergency causing him to drift into oncoming traffic and strike another vehicle. NO ONE but him was injured in the accident. He received numerous broken bones, lost one of his legs above the knee, and was burned over 3/4 of his body and had to undergo several skin grafts. He is now permanently disabled and in a wheelchair. Two weeks after he was released from the hospital, his mother, whom he lived with became ill and ended up being in the hospital on a ventilator for about 5 months. During this time my friend has been unable to work, had to sell his remaining tow trucks, and now is in danger of losing the house that him and his mom own. I know there is a fund for fallen tow ops. Is there such a fund or program for disabled tow ops to help them and their families ? I was told to check with our local towing association, I did this and found out the only one we have here, was only created to make the few members sound and look important to the state officials. Most of the members are no longer even in business. His mother is now out of the hospital, but unable to return to their house until it is made safe for both of the. This is a very giving family and I hate to see them lose everything. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, even if it just points me in the right direction Or if someone would be willing to help me start a fundraiser I would be open to that as well
  4. there is a company here in the states called DMAXSWAP.COM that will take your Donor Harness, and remove all the excess wiring and make it the stand alone harness. they will also take your donor ecm and tune it to run just the engine. eliminating the factory gauges, security chip, emissions, ect to just run the engine. I don't need all the computerized Allison stuff because my Allison is completely mechanical. I have talked with several folks who have used this company and for the most part they are supposed to be pretty much plug and play. unless you are trying to do something weird like use the cruise control for throttle up, ect. when you get the harness and ECM back it has it's own fuse block, you hook up a constant hot, switched hot, and a ground. supposedly all the electronics on the engine will work and function as they are supposed to. they say the hardest part is the intercooler piping and hooking up your mechanical gauges. but I am still doing my research. like to be fully informed before I pull the trigger.
  5. my truck already has the Allison transmission so all I am planning to use is the Engine.I figure the Allison in my truck is probably stronger than the Allison 1000 that came in the 08 I have found a company that makes a stand alone harness that eliminates everything but whaat the engine needs to run. looks pretty promising. they also flash the computer so that the complete system is stand alone.
  6. I have a 92 Topkick with the 366 Gasser in it. OLD, Reliable, and gets the job done. will not however pass even a closed/boarded up Gas station. I picked up a 2008 Crew cab Duramax and a seriously considering transplanting the 6.6 into my medium duty. process seems pretty straight forward and easy to do. Just looking for input from others who have done this, or know someone who has. trying to broaden my knowledge base 🙂
  7. I am possibly looking to equip my trucks with IPR plate reader cameras, and am possibly looking for a company that I can go through to finance them. if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for thoughts and input on how these systems work and their effectiveness.
  8. Figured I would start this just to see how many Wyoming folks are out there
  9. I have purchased all the systems I have from eBay. just have to make sure they are complete. some she wiring.ellers think they have the overhead console and that is a complete system. also have to make sure the wiring is in tact. some of the folks who uninstall them just hack the crap out of the wiring. I just looked and saw 5 different complete systems listed.
  10. Nice display, and one could hope it gets the message across.
