    or is there really no tech in the garage? i mean no real deep stuff. all the same questions, with the same responses. what about 52 inch springs, crossover, tranny tase swap stuff and just about every other question that has been answered at least a hundred times. i cant seem to get any good threads started. all i get are opinions and no facts. whats the deal?

    or should i go back to posting pics in my battle thread :D ?

    How about slide out sides, similar to those on the RV's? Wide body for highway use, and narrowed for the trail? :p:

    Same here, we're having a wrenching party at my place over spring break though. I think I'd go into withdrawal otherwise.

    I put all the 52" threads together in one post right around the time people stopped asking questions about it. If I get bored one of these days I'll compile a while ****load of "stupid question" threads into one massive newbie killer.

    instead of trying something new, people just do what has been suggested in the past as proven. i mean if it works, it works, but there is sometimes a better way to do it.

    thats the main reason i usually don't post that im doing something till it is done. one project im working on, someone mentioned "what if there was this", that got the idea brewing in my head. i PMed a few local guys, asked a few small questions and told them what it was im working on. im halfway threw it right now, need a few more crutial things and its a done deal. ready to bolt under my truck.

    Yeah the garage is gettin a little chatty:wink1: I see tech posts from time to time, but the problem is there are a lot of people asking the same stuff over and over again, and the actual questions get pushed down. I know the garage is 4x4 related topics and not just strictly tech, but it gets the most views, but I agree there is a lot of junk posted there.
