So is KLC still a mod?

I get that all the free stickers in the world Arn't gonna make everyone happy (including me). I remember when these guys bought from Rick there was a contest for a freebie. That was how long ago...?

I only recently knoticed the slow speeds as I thought it was my wifi acting up.

Something else to consider is the "community" thing. When a meet is posted and a date is set and all these people say "yea I'll be there!" Then two weeks out everyone starts bailing for whatever reason it's a little disheartening and a disappointment to those who might have set it up or tried to set something up.

That could go back to not enough site traffic and I understand people have lives aside from this place. It's just something to consider as back in the day there was 4/5 meets a year across this continent originated on this site. Hell when I joined everyone banded together just to send BL parts to a girl so she could lift her truck. That right there is similar to the dub community.

Btw, Pedro's quote seems pretty cookie cutter for a faceless org.

I, too, do not visit this site nearly as much as I use to. Same thing though, its mainly the activity level. It sucks because Ive been here since basically day one, and use to be stuck on this place


might be a stupid question but how would one go about buying a forum site like this one.

Here is the deal guys.

I have resigned as admin from the site. I no longer have the time to be on the site or the drive to work on the site as I don't own a ranger and have no plans of owning one. WIth that said I have made Taylor admin and he will take my place. He is always on here and someone you guys like from what I gather.

Question can be directed toward him from now on and he will be the go to guy. I feel he is best to make this site continue on. I will be removed from admin soon so any questions feel free to ask him or myself.

So does IB plan to answer our questions as well?

Taylor, you are well aware of the issues. Let us know how we can help

not sure how forums work i just use many of them and RF layout and the way it works just sucks. I agree the members here are low but why not update the site.

You can PM any of there IB system admins on here. At this point it is probably better to let Taylor start things off. He can speak with them first and see what's up.

I haven't been around enough to know the issues other then what you guys have posted here. Taylor has and should be able to get answers. I would imagine IB will post up in the coming days and/or have answers to the questions listed. They have been notified.

This was a goal of mine when IB first took over. It never happened. To many hurdles internally (not with IB, with RF) for me to be able to accomplish it. iB knows the layout sucks and is old school and hopefully for you guys Taylor can make that happen.

I've noticed the new post counts have been down from the normal 10 pages of new stuff every day, just figured more people were busy with other stuff. Haven't been on/posting as much lately myself either, but sometimes we just need a break to deal with other things.

Congrats to Taylor on the promotion too!

I let my subscription expire a while back. Just haven't been as active. Haven't been doing much to the truck. I know I've seen a lot of complaints here lately, but I haven't spent enough time here to have any lately. Anyway.... There's their info. Wasn't too hard to find, but there it is.

We shouldn't have to contact them outside of the forum, that's why they are "admins"

They should be active enough to have seen and responded to this thread.

Sure, but that obviously isn't working. Internet blabbing only gets you so far. If someone really cares and people show that they care, then a phone call or even a physical visit is much more effective. The information is there...
