    This may sound dumb but many of you might already know that TNN is becoming Spike TV and they are asking for comments on what to show on it. I for one think /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif we need a channel that covers the stuff we love... Rock crawling, mud bogs, hill climbs, Baja etc. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    With over 13,000 members, we might make them think about it if we give them a push.
    I know some of you are going "Yea, Right /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" but WTF? Why not try??? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Send them your ideas at Spike TV
    Maybe we can see some shows that we want to see. After all, we built this site, didn't we?
    It might be a good break now and then from the internet /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.
    (It would at least give our fingers a break now and then.... ) /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i sent em some advice. I think it'd be great if they had atleast 2 4x4 shows. One could be all about competitive aspects of our sport, like mud drags, rock climbing comps etc... and second could be all about regular joes building rigs for fun (basically a tv version of what 4 wheeler and petersons do already). I'd love to watch that kinda show... still photos in mags are great, but video would be that much cooler. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Fast and the Furious... ghey as it was/is does show the bean counters that entertainment based on a niche automotive market can yield big $$$... so hopefully we can get a good 4x4 show out of this new channel. I highly recommend that peeps send em a message...

    Sorry I missed your post. Guess I've been working too hard.
    It would really be nice though. I'm sick of having 100+ channels and only 2 or 3 that have good stuff. No wounder I spend so much time in the garage or here /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
