I was slightly involved in the idea of it, as Bill invited me through the Yahoo group he created. Unfortunately, I'm computer retarded, so I didn't really contribute to the actual site. But, I'm here!! And loving it!! Thanks again for the invite Bill!!


On another note, slightly off topic, anyone notice how dead the O/S Offroad section is???? :finger:

Loving this site.

And it seems to me that this site is going even stronger than the O/S offroad section ever did!

Kinda nice to start fresh sometimes... no more "What do i need to lift?!" bullshit. :woot:

It still attracts noobs every day, who get fabulous advice from the wannabe offroaders who just put on their mall lifts.

I asked James first after seeing his signature on the os. I guess I wanted to make sure my status was acceptable. I question if "asking" should be a prerequisite with members like Philberto standing on every corner of the os inviting people to the party. :excited: :shock: :shock:

:slap: now now, I've only invited two people, and one of those was already on here it turns out... The other one earned the "decidedly non-noob" award, for lifting his TB from MarkMC and finding all his own info and using his first post to share that. If we start seeing a noob wave though, I will take full responsibility, cease being friendly to the OS people, and let our Viking mods weed out the undesirables :viking: :viking:


Besides, I think the roadie's doing a good job of scaring noobs from ever coming here :shoot:

That's a good point. Been reading his posts on the os and he seems even more cranky than usual.

It's a normal seasonal variation, well within normal parameters. :lol: Somebody should publish the RCI (Roadie Crankiness Index) and see if it correlates to ladies' skirt lengths or the DJIA. :work:

Plus a new unanticipated effect: Lots of new TB owners getting older vehicles, traded in by their first owners for being maintenance nightmares, expecting them to be "normal" GM products. Hehe. And doing inadequate pre-purchase inspections. Poor sods.

Plus the continuing parade of Show & Shine fans, not like us. Here's one:

XXX wrote:i see that quite a few people have splash guards. question is: has anyone just ran w/ them in the winter, and taken them off in summer? if so how much crud gets behind them and has it messed up the paint.

i have factory chrome steps for summer and factory black steps for winter on a white tb. would like to use guards in the winter, but not if it will mess up paint underneath.

Crybaby.

Same here as well. I had seen JD's link on Trailvoy and followed it. but at the time it was just the build for his TB.

threw me off the first time the new site popped up on me. :scratch:

I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
