just thought I'd drop in here to say what's up
yeah, still have the old '87 4wd, but it's on errand/home repair/hauling duties mostly these days, and the leisure time activities have shifted to motorcycles

I, too, remember when this was the go to place and there would be loads of activity on this forum. in some ways, this forum spoiled me for forums on other subjects. I find that most of the posters here were very forthcoming with information and specific details. it's one of the things that irks me about other forums, people who chime in just to say, "me too", or posting stuff that's irrelevant, or thinking they're contributing to something, but not really posting anything meaningful.

anyway, haha, I think I'm probably good for another year or so now, haha

hope all you FF's are doing well!

Yotas Unite!



Hi Guys, thanks for sharing your thoughts and memories of how things once were here on Off-Road.com.

I'm glad you're active on other Toyota specific sites, one of them a sister site (Pirate4x4).

Don't forget to stop by from time to time, help out a fellow wheeler, especially if it's a Toyota. We're in the minority, so any wisdom or insight you can add will help out others.

As for the great tech content you describe, it's still there. Best way to get to it is by doing a search. I know, its different than it used to be, but you can still reference old Toyota tech articles on Off-Road.com

Start here Toyota Truck Features, Reviews and Tech Articles.

Thanks for making Off-Road.com what it is today. Hope you guys stop in from time to time, comment on articles, and tell us what you want to read or see.

Cheers!

DezertScorpion

Wow.... I haven't been on any Toy sites for a loooooonggggg time. The last time I posted on Pirate 4X4 I got some infantile BS from that penis breath "moderator" Steve, so decided I wasn't going to waste my time anymore. It's ironic that I was posting some very techy information about iridium spark plugs. But.... apparently those tiny-peckered, 2-digit I.Q'd pinheads are still enjoying their moronic replies. I just don't have time for morons, idiots, retards, and people who obviously have no life and just hide behind their keyboards and pathetic wasted words of slander and disgrace - they have zero self-respect!!

I see there are some older posts from the "old timers". Yeah... this was THE place to be back 10-12 years ago. It was arguably a place to get some brilliant information from some very very knowledgeable Toyota owners. I learned more here about my Toy trucks than any site I've ever been on. I truly appreciated the bantering, humor, genius, incredible knowledge, experiences, ideas, and sometimes worthless, but really fascinating opinions, that were shared here by many good and caring people. It's a bummer that it disappeared.

Yes, I think a lot of the loss of posters is probably related to the loss of all the technical content that used to live in the old off-road.com/toyota section. Some of it was moved over to the newer site format, but so much of it was not transferred and it is lost unless you can find an old copy some place. And ORC used to go out and actively recruit authors for content. Back in the day I wrote a review article for them. But with no new (or old) content, nobody checks in much anymore.
