Default Rest in peace Mike (C20ELEPHANT)

RIP Mike. It was a pleasure to meet you and to have hung out together. Even though we didn't see eye to eye on some things, we still talked many times about parts and wrenching on trucks. You will be missed by me and many others..... take care up there buddy and go burn some tires off!

That's sad news. It's easy to forget there's a person behind the screen name and not just the internet talking with you. Never met the guy but had a few conversations with him.

Rest easy
