R-F has the best members in the world!!!! GOOD READ!!!!

I would like to say a special thanks to Chris (a.k.a. Sea-Bass) For helping out a fellow Member, Good friend, Loyal R-F member and most of all a Great Honest Man---Jerry (a.k.a. Jazz921.) Chris bought Jerry's body lift and I (a.k.a. jeweler54) bought gap guards for Jerry and let me tell you guys.... He deserves it. With his Girlfriend in the hospital with a serious brain injury, he has stayed by here side %110 of the way. He has been through a rough time and has put his money towards traveling to see her. He has talked to me on the phone several times and has mentioned doing a Body Lift. Well Chris took care of it. As did I. Jerry Is a Awesome guy and great friend and I can't give Chris enough respect for this self-less act. We hope Jerry enjoys this gift for years to come. Stuff like this is the reason I love this site. Hope she gets better Jerry! Keep us updated... You and your girl are in our thoughts and prayers!

Again Chris.... Dude.... I think your palace in heaven just got a bit larger my friend... When you go can I have your front bumper? LOL!


Jerry's Story:

In December my girlfriend had a bad wreck (yes, it was in her Ranger). She hit a patch of black ice and hit a tree. She seemed to be fine but a few days later we noticed her pupils dilating and she was forgetting things. They did a cat scan and found a clot which they removed and put her on blood thinners. Well she had a massive bleed in her brain a night later and that surgery left her unable to speak and she couldn't remember anything from before the accident and also couldn't use her left hand or leg very well. We had to take her back to the hospital last week for headaches and black eyes and they said her brain was swelling again and had to go in to relieve the pressure or she would die so they did. Well, we lost her 3 times while she was in the 7 hour surgery and when it was over she was on total life support and they were preparing us for the worst. Well, she stabilized and yesterday they decided since she was awake and breathing on her own to remove the vent. pipe and as soon as she did she let out a full sentence. Everyone in the room just stopped because its been months since we heard her say anything, it was so amazing and she is remembering bits here and there so we have her back but she still has a long way to go to get better. I just wanted to share this as I am higher than cloud nine that I got my baby back!!! She should get to come home in a few weeks and we can get back to normal life again.

Wow guys! I havnt been on here for a few days but this thread just blew me away. I cant say thank you enough for all the support and what Ben got together. I just dont know what to say but thank you so very much. My girl, Fawn, is back in ICU but she is awake again. The doctor tells us that she will probably have seizures for the rest of her life and they are trying to match the medication to curve them. She is groggy and a little confused but hanging in there. We were hoping to bring her home in May but still not sure. She has been in the hospital this time for over a month now. I showed her this thread and the other one I had started and she cried.

Thanks again everyone, from both of us!!!

I think they are planning on putting it on at the Branson meet, he does need someone to make some brackets/do some cutting/welding for lifting his grill guard after the BL though. I think (From just looking at his avatar) he has the one that mounts to the underside of the frame.
