An FAQ post for the same old questions

If there's enough interest I'm considering creating a sticky post with links to the answers for the frequently asked questions. The format would look like this:

What is the Team Rush Upgrade? HERE
How can I tell what differential I have? HERE
How much lift does it take to get 33s under a CJ? HERE

Under the HERE is a link to a writeup, picture or whatever.

To gauge the interest I'm starting this thread. There are three pieces of information I would like:

1 Request - What items should be covered?
2 Data - What is the answer to (1)?
3 Comment - Is the answer posed in (2) good and accurate?

If there is a lot of activity, this thread will get pretty complicated. To help keep it straight, please begin your post with "REQUEST", "DATA" or "COMMENT" and if you're referring to an earlier post, make clear which one.

Please don't use this thread for discussion about whether it's a good idea or not. We can talk about that in a separate thread. If it's a goofy idea it will go nowhere.

To show how I'd like this to run, I'll put two more posts after this one. Then you all can jump in if you want.

Thanks.

REQUEST I think we should have a link that will identify different rear ends.

DATA This is a picture of many common differential gaskets.

COMMENT That picture that Jim_Lou posted of differential gaskets is the most useless piece of horse dung I've ever seen. What we really need is actual pictures of every axel ever made.

Re: An FAQ post for the same old questions

1. Ya gotta get them to read it!
2. IMHO... they won't.
3. It's like the sign says...
4. But people would be stopping and asking: "Is the cat free?"

Re: An FAQ post for the same old questions

REQUEST

I'd like to read a FAQ that makes it so I can identify any kind of Jeep ever made. IE: CJ2/CJ5/CJ7/TJ/YJ et cetera. The only ones I'm not interested in are the XJs and ZJs. I'd even take info on the Chiefs. I'd like to be able to identify all of them by merely looking at them. Then, knowing what they look like I could then know what kind of goodies they've got on them.

Re: An FAQ post for the same old questions

REQUEST

I'ld like to see a FAQ board with links to some of the more common mod's, maybe even done in order of:
CJ mods
YJ mods
TJ mods
common mods i.e SOA, herculiner . . .

I know it would be difficult to include ALL mods but maybe just the more commonly requested ones

HUH?

Isn't this just like the SWB forum except it's in one thread and there isn't a search function? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

BWAAAAAAAHAHAhahahahahahahah
Larry I just gained a "new notch in the belt loop" of respect for you. While I've seen it before, I'd of never thunk you'd of posted it. I see we both share the same love of the feline species. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: An FAQ post for the same old questions

I agree with Aaron... but sometimes I still post a redundant question so I can get a more direct responce.
