My name is Andy Risley. Arisley is my user name on every forum I have ever belonged to.

First forum was when I bought my early 99 Ford F350 Extended cab dually. Pure stock. That forum died on one spectacular night of trash posting by most of the active members.

One of the big members started PowerStrokeNation, most of the active users migrated over there. My truck went from 210 BWHP stock, to about 350 RWHP on that forum, all done in my driveway. Lots of custom fabrication done with a side grinder, buzz box welder, vise and a hammer and drills. The owner of that site sold out to a large auto forum group.

Another member started PowerStrokeArmy, I migrated over there with a bunch of performance minded members. I took my truck to a bit north of 500 RWHP, once again in my driveway. My greatest regret is not getting into the 12's. I did 13.5 while spinng my wheels for 500 feet. If I could get it to hook up, I would be in the 12'3 easy.

I keep the same user name, so that I am the same me, everywhere on the internet. I refuse to hide.

Been wrenching for over 45 years now. Owned way over 300 cars, less than ten ran when I bought them. Any help I can give, just ask. I know I will be asking for help from Y'all.

My father was an owner operator truck driver. His CB handle was "Black Knight" so it's in honor of him.

My father died 3 months before my now 16 year old boy was born. He wanted a grandson and it would have been his first grandchild, but at the time when he was alive we thought it was going to be a girl, within weeks of him passing we found out it was a boy.
