Default What FRF needs.....

Just an idea (dont know how hard to do this would be). Over at TRS, they have a nice technical library [LINK]

Maybe we could do something similar to this, and just base everything off of user submissions, or figure out where and how TRS got all this information.

I think it would be cool because I personally prefer the looks of FRF to TRS (sorry to anyone that likes TRS), and it would be sweet to have everything on one awesome ranger site ( aka. FRF )

Again, this is just an idea.

Any other 3 of the major Ranger sites suck. But the idea is solid. But we do have a search function when used correctly it is just like the tech library.

im not disagreeing with you though

yeah i like the tech section they have there, it is a very solid set up, it makes things really easy to find, and i feel like we have more to offer.

We do have a great search feature, but it would be great to have a tech library with tech stuff in one central location.

I personally believe FRF does have more to offer (why I joined here over any other ranger form) . I dislike the color scheme at TRS, the way post are on TRS and overall, the whole layout of it.


And this one may seem silly, but I even dislike the logo. IMO, I think its ugly.

Something else I just rememberd that TRS has is an online magazine. Now this is a stretch, and I mean a big stretch, but maybe we at FRF could start something like that. Maybe have a bunch of user submitted articles and stories and pictures, and a group of users that voluntarily puts it all together. Like I said, I know it's a stretch. But hey, just an idea. But then again we might be infringing on TRS if we did stuff like that. What do you guys think about that?

I came to FRF becuase I am more street and style oriented. Where TRS seems to be all about Solid Axles, V8 Swaps, and off roading. So I found you guys and I use them for any of my technical issues.
