    I cancelled all my off road subs cause I was tired of seeing Nice paint jobs with 44's and 10 bolt axles. Most of the time with more shocks than you can count with your fingers.(Yes, I always count that way /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif The part of them mags that I really miss is the tech trick sections. They always had some trick that was cool. Like one I saw not long ago was a guy mounting his license plate on the roller fair lead with a mag lite type clip. Press it on and go, or yank it off and winch... Now I know you guys are workin on stuff all the time. Creating and building so I know you are coming up with stuff like that. Pass it along when you get a revelation like that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I mainly get them for the worst stuck photos. Those people make me feel smarter. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Once in awhile a good cheap tech trick that is interesting too. Seems like they have become mostly catalogs lately.

    Fourwheeler used to be way better before Peterson's publishing bought it, that's for sure.

    fourwheeler was bought by petersen's, which was then bought by e-map, an english publishing giant, which then sold the 4x4 titles to primedia which already had off-road and sport utility vehicle, petersen's had four wheel and offroad, jp, and 4x4 power which got the axe when e-map bought them out, for a brief time fourwheeler's publishing company came out with a magazine called fullsize 4x4, i have the issues before it was stopped before it was sold to petersen's /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    since we are on the subject of magazines...
    Anyone else glance at em as the walk through the store and see the cover say something like "build a xxxxxx for your truck" then you get it home and it's buy this kit open the box and bolt it in/on. Very seldom do I even bother looking at em anymore, unless I'm looking for some ads to get current prices on stuff.

    The only ones I look at anymore are Petersons Off-road which is my favorite and Four Wheeler. I dont know about Four Wheeler anymore though. I'm not too interested in seeing some Ford SuperDuty Show truck. The only reason I think I still read that mag is for the TTC. I wont even talk about OffRoad magazine.
