Other Forums Suck...

Ok, been a JF member for damn near 10 years now. A lot has changed in that time, I personally no longer own a Jeep, but we still have my wife's WJ.

Now we also have a Toyota Tundra, a Toyota Celica, and a Yamaha YZF600R, (and previously I had a Scion TC)...And naturally I have joined forums for each of these vehicles.

These forums all suck. Way less tech info, and much crappier banter in the "general" forums, if they even have them.

I suppose that means I'll be spending more time on here, especially in the general discussion forum.

Ok, carry about your business.

I agree. Of all the forum's I've been a part of throughout my internet-life, JF has been/is the best.

I'm sure it helps that at least until a few years ago, especially if you had a 4.0, Jeeps generally didn't require any crazy tools to work on, and were fairly straight forward, where a lot of other cars these days have jobs that the average garage mechanic can't even do for themselves.

That, and like you said, people are kind of lazy now days.

Me I am to cheap to pay someone else to do something I can do on my own.

Now i do leave alighments and machine work to the pros. I helped a guy out with is race car and he showed me how to set toe and camber with just a tape measure and some math lol.

I love working on my own stuff and sharing the info.

I guess they dont call them stealerships for nothing then right?

I've found that forums that deal with vintage vehicles such as mustangs, IH's, LC's, ETC, as well as the hot rod forums are all about spreading the wealth.

I have been a member of Pennock's Fiero forum for eleven years. The whole forum is great ... General, Tech, and especially T/OT (totally off topic of Fieros = general discussion). Many long time members from all walks of life. Age, life experiences, political bents, religious leanings. Everything gets talked about. A well behaved group who have over time become to be friends regardless of the differing of opinions. The forum is self moderated. The owner (from the Netherlands, hence the nl in the url address) technically is the moderator and he will step in in extreme cases. It is family/work friendly. There are no annoying ads, there used to be none.
The discussions cover all areas of interest. There are probably twenty new discussions started every day.

Here is a link. http://www.fiero.nl/cgi-bin/fiero/fo...er=6&SUBMIT=Go

So what's the story here, did I miss something? I mean, sure there is a whole section now devoted to supporting vendors, but is there more to it that I'm unaware of?

I browse a Ferrari forum when I'm feeling down. It reminds me that I'm not trying to compensate.

I frequent a few "good forums" Miata.net, jeepforum, theamcforum, pirate.

My crohns forum has allot of tech but I'm guessing most of you don't care about that type of tech.

Honestly, the old avenger/sebring forums of early 00s to about 06ish were the best I was ever on, I still talk to half of the more regular posters from there on facebook and many of us still meet up when in the areas others live in. Been to several member's weddings, went to another state to get a tat from one guy, and helped that same one remodel his house that is 5hrs away from me over the course of several weekends where I drove over after work friday and spent the weekend there. Just had a huge bonding experience on those 2 forums and man just a lot of fun.

Jeep forum is a close second to those though and I want to get out and meet more people from here and do stuff with everyone. And most of the modern mopar forums I have been on are not as bad as import forums, the LX Forums for my magnum is full of tech and cool people even if I have not done as much with them IRL, and when I had my dakota and was on the dakota durango forum it was cool too but both of those had less fun general chats than jeepforum IMO.

04 TJ sport 4.0 automatic. Stock, for now.

I hate on JF and how Keith sold out but I have met a lot of good people on here that I still talk to on a daily basis on Facebook/text/whatever. Few of us are on Xbox almost every night still ever since that giant xbox 360 thread was made back in 09. Used to hang out with one of the guys on a pretty regular basis before I moved down here to NC.
