Yeah, what's happened? Lots of folks used to be doing things to their Jeeps, but now almost nothing. Maybe it's the economy - people can't afford to go play, so stuff isn't being broken, so stuff isn't being repaired and modified.
And something else, people used to gripe about nasty arguments and flame wars, but that simmered down about the same time as board traffic started declining. Coincidence, or did people really enjoy the fireworks? Ah dunno.
And another factor on the modifications; it's a lot more difficult to do anything these days because of the need to comply with emission and safety laws in most of the country. Except for adding bling there's not much that can be done to a new Jeep and keep it street legal. You don't need the knowledge that's here, or used to be, to install chrome plated door hinges.
