That's great to hear Kathy. I know Mike is looking down smiling... And many cringing b/c of all the stuff he got... haha j/k.

It's good to know it will be in good hands.

OK I resent it. I think it didn't go the first time because I neglected to put a title on it. Thanks.

I will make sure he gets on this forum and lets you all know who he is. He has a Dodge diesel (I'm ducking) that he uses for work so he is already a diesel dude and all around nice guy. This is going to be his and Mike's sisters' 5th wheel truck. I threw in extra tool boxes, those two trannys sitting in our garage, the really expensive motor oil (Amzoil??) and that computer thingy that spits out codes (and the laptop Mike had dedicated to it) and to seal the deal, an extra Squatty Potty we had around the house. He's a happy camper. That lifts a huge burden from me because now I don't have to make any more payments. And of course he will nurture the truck and it will stay in the family.
If he has any questions about the tunes for the truck or the software, feel free to email me at thefermdog@aol.com. I had just sent him some old versions of the software and other stuff, and I'm pretty sure the tuning in the truck was the ones I did for him.

RIP. One of the few people who was actually helpful on DuramaxForum when I first posted over there a few years ago

He had setup a dropbox account because the files were to large to email. I was always helping him out with tuning and questions he had about tuning or just general questions.

I had talked to Mike several times and told him I was going to look him up on my annual trip to Quartszite this past January. I had to cancel this last one and so I never got to shake his hand. I travel all parts of the country and have met several but Mike was one that I will have regrets about. Totally surprised at the sudden turn of events.
He freely shared lots of good information to many. I think he went the extra mile.
Thank Mike RIP
