I've been a diesel fan since my dad bought a 1994 GMC 3500 with the 6.5 Turbo in it, he still has it and still runs like an champ. He also has a 02 Dmax and a 2010 Dmax. I'm not new to diesels as I have owned a 98 GMC 6.5 Turbo had it for a few years and traded it in on a gasser when it needed a ring job (btw worst mistake ever should have just kept it and fixed it). Since then I have missed owing a diesel and now am the proud owner of a 2004 GMC LB7 although it does have 131000miles it still has a long life ahead of it (took some convincing of the wife also as I traded in a 2010 GMC 5.3liter Texas edition with 20000miles). About to start the long process of draining and filling and replacing of all fluids and filters, just due to the fact that i have no idea what the previous owner did or didn't do and how the truck was used.

Working on diesels is not a new thing either, I use to work as an EMT for a company and became their mechanic as well. Which was working on the Ford diesels mainly the 7.3 Powerstroke

Big career change, and closer to family. My dad, grandmother, aunt and two uncles live in Stanton. I also have a brother that lives in Midland.
