holy crap. nice work. you know if you get board i'll have a motor you can help me drop in. ha ha.
Lol well not only am I willing to help I'm trying to get my buddy to help too.

Mods maybe we could get with and maybe clubfronty and get one giant how to/diy together so maybe get more ideas of mods etc...also I'll start another thread/poll I know I'm an iPhone user maybe someone out there would be willing to do an xterra app...again maybe work with the admins of the other popular sites that we all are crossover members to and make them iPhone friendly...just an idea I have no idea if there is enough demand for it.

And thank you all...yes was a little board at work, has something like this and I thought it was a great idea so I borrowed it and applied it to here...props should go to the person who started it over there...

ok ok for those of you who made the write up...props to yall...for those of you who made write up that didnt make the list...either your main post wasnt titled correctly so i didnt know if it was a write up or just a question or it didnt have pictures (pictures were a must in the write ups....if there was only one topic then it just got added w/ or w/o pics) so sry to those whos write ups didnt make the list...i just PM'd the guy who did newx's list (also an admin) to see if he would allow me to link to their list...i know there are several mods on there that we dont have...the more ideas the better
