    Ok, i just checked out both of their sites. Is it just me or are they almost exactly the same. Same info, same everything,same readers rigs......Speaking of readers rigs...why is 50% of them cars. Lowered hondas, neons and some muscle cars. I think muscle cars are cool but they don't belong on an off road site. And why does 4wheel&offroad have an article on how to lower a chevy?!

    what are some good 4x4 websites?

    truckworld.com has some good off road vehicles but also has street rods etc...

    Probably because they are both EMAP mags now. and all the EMAP mags (trucks cars imports domestics)readers rides probably go in one gallery. to save space.

    http://www.off-road.com/chevy is a very good site. I spend as much time on that site as I do on this one.

    I've been a posting member of www.Truckworld.com for over a year now, and I have to say that it's going down the crappper. If you want any help with anything technical, don't bother on that site. To many young kids who don't know anything making fun of someone who doesn't own the same kind of truck they do, calling each other names, pretending they aren't kids who don't know anything, posting BS instead of helping people with problems, etc etc etc. I've been talking with several of the guys on Truckworld who have been around for a while, and we all agree that if it gets any worse we're outta there.

    Fullsize 4x4 was a sweet magazine, but it failed because it didn't draw a large enough reading audience to justify it's publishing. So it died after 3 issues. Sorry, I wish it had made it too. [​IMG]

    EmapUSA owns a BUNCH of magazines. Instead of building aweb site for each, they're sorta lumping them all together and you select the one you want to "see". So far, there appear to be some technical glitches. Drilling down to some of the Chevy performance articles brings you to a selction for Corvettes. (Corvette engines are GREAT for a K5, but the rest of the car????) [​IMG]

    I think their new site really sucks. They have everything framed down to the point that you can only read about 2 paragraphs of something before you have to click another link to keep reading. Most unimpressive....

    As for the Full Size 4-Wheeler mag. I only bought one. I had already read every single article in it! It was nothing but old articles from their mainline 4x4 magazines. [​IMG]
