    I lift my glass to the Brotherhood that is CK5. Only 3 months into the family, I have noticed several obvious truths. As a brother or sister of the brotherhood, we come together from all walks of life. All nationalities, backgrounds, and ages are welcome. Standards are set high and are taken seriously. The only ribbing done is done in fun. The brotherhood does not take kindly to those who would belittle or degrade someone without due cause. We are men and women of our word and without our word we become just another FORUM to bad mouth one another and treat each other disrespectfully.

    CK5, where a brother will drive 2 hours to help a newbie look at a part, where parts are exchanged for sometimes nothing, where an afternoon will be sacrificed if needs be to get a DD up and going. Where payment for it might be a case of Beer or handshake and a thank you. Where we can come with our daily problems for advice. Although we might not like the honest feedback, we often endure ribbing and take it with a grain of salt. Where questions about 52” springs, tire fitment, lift questions and any other daily questions are answered even though the same question was answered yesterday. The brotherhood stands together shoulder to shoulder, rookies and veterans, old and young, religious or not. We all bleed Chevy ORANGE.
    As a newbie, I have gained more knowledge over the last 3 months about vehicles than my previous 27 years. I am now the knowledgeable go to guy in my family about the sport of offroading and I owe it all to the brotherhood.
    So to my fellow Chevy brothers and sisters, thank you and Long Live CK5!
    Cheers!!!

    In general I would agree, although there seems to be mudslinging thrown in to mix it up.....some people just can't resist..
    I would think it would be different if members were face to face.
    Putting a face behind words brings more of a personal notice to it.
    At any rate, this is a great forum of Blazer Brotherhood.

    I can't agree more. I'm new to even being a Noob, but learned more, and feel more at home, than ever. I've met so many nice people, that helped me so much in this short time. Alot of problems have been fixed already, both with my K5 and personal. To the Brotherhood, Thank You:D

    I'd say it's good practice to maintain a certain expectation, just don't be suprised when it isn't met.

    Yes I pooped on this thread. Pbbbbttttttttttt.
