Our very own S-series section...

Hi all,

We have tentative approval to create our very own S-10 section at Off-Road.Com. So far the stuff I have put together is very minimal and are articles and feature vehicles (like two or three) that were done since the web site opened up.

I've scoured the site looking for s-series stuff, and there ain't much of it. My rough design is located at the following address: Click Here

Here's what I'm looking for:

Updated FAQ - Drew! ? !
Complete Tire fitment guide. There's one on ORC but I think it's incomplete for us and I'd rather see what the sources are.
How to check for vacuum actuated 4x4 - Sandman is handling this.
Brake upgrades - I know WeaZle did this, just waiting for the photos to come back with a story.
Body lift installation - Anyone do this at home, have pictures, want to write up something? PLEASE????????????
How about a list of available lift kits (suspension) for all S-series vehicles? - Including contact information and for what years they are available?
Product Reviews - I need reviews of products you tried. Once the site is up it'll make more sense. If you want more ideas then you should check out the Toyota section of Off-Road.com.
YOUR IDEAS ARE NEEDED!


Like I said there isn't much on the site that caters to us. We can make this site as good (actually better) than the "other" s-10 sites, but we need some help!

Let me know your thoughts, or at the very least start thinking about pulling out that word processor and start on some stories! Once we get some more material, we can introduce the S-series section to the Chevy Section and go from there. Most stories will go on the main Chevy section and then into the S-series section. Hopefully we can have a very clean methodology made up to do this.

Thoughts? Comments? Free Beer?

One more thing. If you want to you can send me a private message on this board to "J.R.". Or you can e-mail me at [email protected]

Thanks!

Re: Our very own S-series section...

The site looks nice! I have a few pics of body lift. I also have some pictures from when I changed my ball joints that I have been meaning to put in an article. I'll see what I can come up with.

Re: Our very own S-series section...

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Sometime (hopefully still early this year if the Michigan weather co-operates) soon I'll have completed not only the vacuum actuated 4x4 diagnosing, but also an easy way to bypass that setup with a real mechanical setup for much cheaper than some other products already on the market for it.

We might also want an article compiling all sorts of tips/useful hints as to how to do emergency repairs and such... I'm sure we can compile a pretty good list of those... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Maybe even one listing the maintenance schedules and how to check some things like the ball joints, and those types of items.

Great to hear this is starting to move along [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Our very own S-series section...

I know there was a magazine article a while ago about all the lifts available for our trucks. I will see what I can find.

Re: Our very own S-series section...

I know that a lot of people ask about lifting 2wd s10s on this board so i thought that maybe you could use some pics of my 2wd body lift for the s10 section...i will do a write up about it all if you want to include it.

Re: Our very own S-series section...

We'll take all kinds! Thanks! Body lift instructions and any types of problems or shortcuts you might have would be cool!

If JROGERS can do the 4x2 and you could do the 4x4 version that would be nice.

E-mail address on original post.

Re: Our very own S-series section...

Sounds great, Tim. Once we get more information put onto the board we can roll out with this baby!

I know it "looks" bad for the truck, but I was also thinking of listing the recalls of s-series and what it affects. Remember we had that scare about recalled brakes and such! I think it would be good to give folks information they can use to keep their trucks in top form...

And remember everyone, this is S-SERIES. So whatever type of s-vehicle you have we need information on!

Thanks!
