Howdy All

Just registered after digging around site for a few days...

I have a big ole parts catalog with me but dont have the complete underatanding of all the performance parts hopen the members of the site can give me the insight i need to make the right choice the first time. Im pretty good with wiring electronics stuff up but as for engine performance goes Im a complete novice Any help would be greatly appreciated in the future

Welcome man, and thank you for your service. I have 3 friends in Afgan right now, think about them all the time, and I am more proud of them than any other.

Welcome and thank you for serving!

If it's truly a 2000MY it's not a true FX4. That wasn't offered until 2001MY. If it's labeled that way it's probably a 4x4 Off Road Package truck.

Oswego, you with the 10th? Spent 4.5 years up there, though more in Iraq than Watertown....

Howdy. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. They didn't make FX4's in '00 though.

Welcome to the site. Good luck with the rest of the tour. I'm going to be doing my first tour to Afghanistan in about 8 months. Good luck with the truck, post some pics when you get back.
