    probably because it takes up alot of the site resources. if you really wanna use it, contribute to the upkeep of it.

    Pay to play, brother. Pay to play.........

    Besides, the info stored within the archives is worth thousands of dollars in saved time, sweat, and tears. And if you can afford monthly internet access, you can afford a measly $2 a month to support the best K-series site on the Net.:deal:

    If non paying members got to use all the features that paying members did nobody would buy a membership and all that'd be left here would be cyber cobwebs...

    It's called incentive.

    PPSSSHHHHHHH.....not if you already know everything then you dont need to pay, this site becomes more of a place to come a bull**** with friends. :rolleyes:

    Just kidding but in all honesty in my years of working on my rig and helping others this has been the best resource I have ever found for help. I know for a fact I have saved hundreds probably thousands of dollars just by coming here. I have no problem paying the membership dues. Although I am kind of bitter sweet to this place because if I didnt come here I would proabably still have a clean unmolested and stockish blazer. :D

    x2. Ive saved hundreds of dollars by visiting this site and helped many friends save quite a bit of money too. I get more help from this site then my old man and he has been working on cars and trucks for 32 years.

    however the only incentive for me to buy a membership, here, was the ability to view/upload pics.

    sometimes incentives don't always work - once pirate4x4 started using inteliTXT on non-paying members it just drove me away instead of wanting to shell out some cash to get rid of that crap even though the site does have plenty of useful info I haven't been back since.

    Yeah, the fact that you have to be a paying member to search at pirate is the reason I don't go there much. I prefer ck5 anyway.
