I don't use the online bill pay option. I email like 98% of my bills and they just mail the check back.

I need to get my customers on board with that, sounds much easier. chasing money isn't fun.

That would suck! I am in the market for a better invoicing system, as of now I bill monthly, include an addressed envelope all they have to do is add a check, stamp and drop it in the mail. I did the collect in person thing my first year and was a paperwork nightmare along with many hours of wasted time.

nice i had 3 of them, over a few year time span, and one i bought with 104k on it, thinking it was low mileage and the tranny was gonna be okay, well it lasted about 10,000 miles and i built it to the sky and 4500 later with all billet pieces and a suncoast triple disk converter it never slipped another day in its life, and built the truck a little too, it ended up putting down 458hp/1053 ft lbs of tq uncorrected, stock turbo, with bigger injectors and some other cheap mods, it was 97 so it was all mechanical. if you do any power adders be careful of which programmers or downloaders you do. check out www.cumminsforum.com if you haven't yet and www.Competitiondiesel.com and make a name and search for whatever you may want to know about the truck and modding it for better fuel economy or just plain more power, because they are a little on sluggish side especially with 12k behind them. I did manage to put down 253whp and 563 ft. lbs of torque on my stock tranny and tow 8,000lbs before it started slipping. good luck and watch out for the bug if it hasn't bit you yet.

Haha, the bug bit me a long time ago, but it was the duramax bug. ive had a programmer in my 06 dmax for about 5 years now and it has never let me down. I always back down the power for heavy towing and plowing. Tranny is doing great and im not gonna add any more power till i have the money to build the trans. I did put down 461hp and 823tq on stock trans tho. Its all fun and games untill your work truck is down.

lol yea i have done a few mods to it, nothing crazy tho. I added a raptor 150 fuel pump, BHAF air intake, 4 inch straight pipe exhaust from the turbo, and a diablo power puck programmer. All the mods woke the truck up nice.
