    Welcome to TW! I am in San Antonio, but I am leary of working on other people's trucks. I am no mechanic and have no certifications. I definitely couldn't afford to help you out if I messed something up on your truck.

    Most of the things I do to my own truck I do "at my own risk".

    That being said (as it is true for most people), what are you looking to do to your truck?

    Oh, and Welcome to TW!!!

    Well, I am more than willing to help. I just have to get some time away from the work and the wife... ;) You may want to find some one that has done those before. I haven't gotten into exterior mods yet (its on my list)...
