    I've always liked the forum best anyway.
    What? I thought you loved the drama and even instigated alot of it. Hahaha

    Yea, but the Drama on FB just isn't the same. Plus, I don't like the notifications popping up every time someone has surfed the web, found a picture of an old jeep, posts it and says "caption this". I haven't done an actual study, but I bet 80% of the posts are made by less than 1% of the members. It's like it's the same person(s) posting the same crap.

    Plus, I may by a JK and that Dorscher guy will flame me if he finds out.

    I got introduced to this group by a cool cat named Sharky. I was stopped at a red light next to him years ago. I remember being so jealous of his rig. It was huge on 33's He told me about the club and it was all downhill from there

    Its good to see some old timers posting up here. I hope the forum hangs around a lot longer

    facebook took some of the traffic but I ended up muting the group on there, I dont need all those notifications on my phone

    forums just arent as popular anymore, and besides, are there places left to wheel in AZ? All the old skool trails are shut down or have houses on them now

    You need to get out more. Plenty of old, and new school trails out there.

    Re: What happened to this forum?

    Some of us old timers still just like to watch people as we sit on the porch. I have been here since it started, mostly watching and A LOT of laughing.

    In all, I think that the forum is still good for technical articles and runs. FB has kind of taken the niche of the quick simpler questions that can be answered by common folk. Most people want info quick, and with most people having their cellphone glued to them, and FB always on. You can get a answer almost immediately.

    Then again, I also think that the newer generation has lost it's motivation for wanting to wrench on their junk and just want to take it to a shop.

    I've said it before, this place lost a lot of traffic due to facebook. I think John's 100% right too, there aren't as many people working on their own stuff so they aren't looking for the tech that forums provide. This sucks too because I really enjoyed wheeling with those kind of people.

    And here I thought you ridiculed me for being banned when I was. Sure, I'm not as cool as most, I drive a Libby after all.

    LOL! Doubt anyone even knows what you're talking about. I started on a 8086. When a 10k hard drive was large and in charge.

There are two ways to upload photos to the forum - one is via tapatalk if you're on mobile and tapatalk allows for what appears to me to be unlimited uploads / hosting.

    I do believe that Shmude some ways back posted a 'hack' that would allow all the photos we used to link to photobucket to 'reappear' here (and other places). That photobucket f**k really screwed up some of the pic threads.
