    Did you ever notice we never saw his pics of his "supposedly 2500"...before he modified it?

    He had after market wheels...took the badges there really was no way to tell he had a 2500?>.....he always praised the 6.0...but did he really have one??

    Then he posted a few pictures of a 1500...(black too)..that he bought after..

    when asked what happened to the 2500?...he never did respond..

    Maui, Hawaii - June, 2000 -- Supreme Truck Force Commander Dave 40, comes to the U.S. Truck Force Membership with great apologies for being out of contact for such a length period. Once knowing the whereabouts of your Chief in the Beautiful Black Truck and the goings on surrounding the past few months, you'll
    certainly be kind and generous in your forgiveness for such a lengthy delay between Road Reports.
                    This most recent adventure,(read "debacle"), began with a long planned trip to hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Salt Lake and have a gander at that Organ! It was well worth the stop. The Spiritual Singing and that tremendous
    instrument would lift any unbeliever as well as any that had a connection with The Man Upstairs. Well, it blew me away. Kind of put me in an altered state
    for a few days... a kind of mind set where you do things without giving them quite enough logical thought first.
                    My serious unthinking actions started at a fast food spot some distance South of Salt Lake. My Truck, as most of you know, draws a crowd wherever it's parked and sitting in the lot at this hash house was no different. I finished-up my chow and after a rest stop headed for the parking lot where several admirers were gawking in, around, and under the Big GMC Sierra 2500 that makes a sweeter noise than Maynard Ferguson on his trumpet! One of the fellows asked if he could see the engine compartment. I, of course, replied in the affirmative - always wanting to do anything to boost interest in pick-em ups no matter what I'm doing. The fellow was blinded by the chrome and sano condition of the big box and asked numerous questions about intake and exhaust valves, carburetion and my high-trick, Dual Flow Master,full-flow exhaust system with the concert tone like no other.
                    This Gent was much impressed in general and wanted to know how much I had invested in the rig. I told him as near as I could recall and he flat-out
    said, "by damn I'ma gonna get me one of them". He then said he'd need a bigger cab, like a four door, because of transporting all his wives. I said, "what!". He then explained that he was what you call a polygamist. That's a man with more than one and sometimes several wives. Well, he sure had my attention by that time. I asked, "How many do you have?" After swearing me to secrecy, he told me, "six". Said they were, "All wonderful women who loved him dearly and
    were never jealous of each other." I couldn't believe it so he invited me to follow him to his home hidden in a small canyon-like setting some 20 miles away,
                    On arrival at his very rustic but highly livable digs, he introduced himself as Opra Ding and introduced me to two of his buds who were there at the time. They were brothers, also polygamists named Coot and Harold Simms. Each of them had five wives and loved every one of them. After meeting the happy wives, I became convinced that these folks had something going for themselves and they were all enjoying it. During subsequent conversations, I evidenced an interest in this polygamy thing and wondered how I could get involved. When the three men heard that, they were nearly jumping with joy. Seems that between them they had four daughters all between 18 and 22 years of age who'd never been married or with any man in a serious way and they thought I'd make a wonderful husband for all four of them. I said, "whoa, that's a bit many to start out with isn't it?"
                    I was assured it was a good round number and they'd all be happy staying together because they were raised together. Next thing I know, in marches Lulu,
    Harriett, and Charlene Simms and Flossa Ding. They all looked quite a lot alike. All were very pretty and well proportioned as Truck Force Folks might
    like. They talked about themselves and how much they wanted a Man to marry. They even started feeling my arms and legs and slipped a little touch here and there. Well, it wasn't long before a deal was struck. There'd be a mass wedding ceremony the next day and I'd have four wives. The Fathers were Gentlemen to the end and offered a fully paid month-long honeymoon for the five of us in Maui, Hawaii where they knew a realtor who'd find us the perfect hideaway on the beach were we could get to know our new mates.
                    We flew out of Salt Lake for LA and on to Hawaii in a faultless bit of scheduling. At the Honolulu Airport we were met by the Realtor Friend who
    had chartered a six passenger plane for a private flight to Maui. All the secrecy surrounding the whole operation intrigued me but I was too Wife-Happy to bust any bubbles by asking silly questions. Very shortly we had rented a nearly
    new Club Cab Chevy pick-up, taking a cue from Father Ding, and were following the Realtor to our Shangri-La on the Blue Pacific Ocean.
                    Once settled-in and lunch over we were dressed in bathing suits that each Wife had put on for me in an almost ceremonial fashion. Very pleasant. I
    suggested that on our first night they draw straws to see which would be sleeping in my bed. That didn't go over very well at all. Their plan, which we
    would follow was to draw straws as to who would be first to make hay with me. And, I wouldn't be finished 'til Flossa, Lulu, Harriett and Charlene were fully knowledgeable in the art of love making in all its varieties. The next day after a visit to the local Doctor for some cream to soothe my angry skin, I made
    a call to a Truck Force Pal in Salt Lake. "Commander Dave, where the hell are you?" he asked. I told him Maui with some new friends and I planned to spend the month. He then related to me a tale that had all the hair standing up on my neck. Seems that this polygamy stuff is against Federal Law and the word was out that some guy had married four young women a few days back and that they might be in Hawaii on a four-on-one Honeymoon! I said, "No way Dude, are you sure about this?" He said, "Hey Big Dave, cut me a break, I just read it in today's paper." "So, keep your eyes open for some character with his eyes bulging out and four Ladies on his arms." "You can tell him that the Feds really want to talk with him big time."
                    I was shaking when I got off the phone. I knew something had to be wrong with this set-up but NOT a Federal Offense! I was a wee bit scared out of my wits and away from my eight new [non-permissible content removed]. Too much for one head. I was fast
    moving to overload when I made the decision to end this illegal multi-legged love affair and get my back side out of trouble as fast as possible.
                    I confronted my "Wives" straight out. I told them that the Federal Law was looking for us in Hawaii and it wouldn't take a genius to know that Maui would be first choice for a month-long fivesome. I was firm. They'd have to fly back to Salt lake two at a time on different airlines and I'd meet them back
    at the Ding hideaway. There was no alternative. I wasn't getting a federal criminal record for four lovely women or anything else. I hadn't really known that this was seriously illegal when it started, but now its in the Salt Lake
    newspaper. Somehow or other, word of our wedding had leaked out and now we had to get out. Fast! I made arrangements for Mr. Ding and the Coots brothers to get a fair refund on the place for the time not used and I hobbled off to a non-descript hotel to hide-out until I knew the Wives were safely home. I was
    still more sore than I'd been since my first Service leave and walking was real agony. Through the pain I made it to the airport and the States. I picked-up
    my big 2500 and dashed out to Dings where everyone involved was waiting. They had heard the Law was after us and under the circumstances, they would simply annul the marriages and return the Wives to single women in just a few words.
    There were many tears shed, but all agreed it was the best thing to do. Charlene, Lulu, Flossa and Harriett all told me that our night together was pure magic and they hoped that fate would bring them another Dave-40. I told them that, "they were still all good as new and could pass for never being touched by
    any man and I vowed an oath of secrecy never to let anyone know what happened and who I was really with." To that end, I've had to change some names in this
    tale of tail -- but the facts are just as reported. As you all know the Supreme United States Truck Force Commander, Dave-40, never lies!! Let me know what you think of polygamy. I can tell you -- the first night's Hell!! All My Best to All of you. Many Blessings, Dave-40
