    Honestly yours was inspiration. I knew I wanted something with grass but never liked the ones that looked like a full lawn and when I came across yours I thought it was different, but still clean and simple. I described it to my graphics artist and that's what she came up with.

    It's the simple things they come up with that make the difference. I was pretty happy with her first draft but the second one had that shading on the blades using the color from the opposite one and that's what did it for me.

    Later I saw that your new to the industry like I am and the same age I was like damn. Maybe it's the age thing that made us enjoy the logo style lol.

    Oh, and when I noticed you had an 8.1 as well it just got way too coincidental.

    I had a new to the industry post? When was that? Lol. And yeah I basically told my guy that I had no idea what I wanted, gave him some color ideas and the name and then he came up with some drafts and the rest is history.

    Nice. How many miles are on yours?

    Meant that your signature said you were only in business since 2011, not new to the industry. Sorry lol. I'm tired.

    128K picked it up a little over a month ago.

    Yea I'm pretty happy with it even with the crappy mileage. I planned on staying away from this motor and the Ford 6.8 when I was looking because of the reported mileage but when I heard how bullet proof they were I figured if I find a nice one give it a shot.

    And the way I look at it is if this engine goes I can find a replacement with similar miles for $1200 or if I wanted to drop a dmax in a can no problem, which i couldn't do if i got the 6.0.

    I'd never buy a Ford gas but I was a little worried with the mileage on mine also but its right around what 6.0s get but a lot more power plus the Ally. And I guess I never thought of that, a dmax would probably bolt right in if I wanted to.
