That's all I hear in here anymore!? What happened? To me it's also dispointing that folks seemed to have lost the passion for their trucks or vehicles in general. It seems there is more discussions on random topics than what started this in the first place, hemi trucks. Just my 2 cents but I come here for truck stuff.

I do have a suggestion for Mr. Hemi and the crew. I would suggest actually reducing the number of Topics. Its great that there are so many, but they are so specific there is really a ton of them! Also, have the front page be just of all the recent posts to whatever topic, that I think would increase the chances of someone responding to something. Challenger talk does this and it has been succesful.

Just my 2 cents. Mr. Hemi, thanks for all that you do.

Ok John, tell us what you are doing with your truck these days. If you read down the more recent posts you will see more than a few have set personal best which is always rewarding. Seems to me there is plenty going on, hang in there buddy.

Today a buddy helped me install a Jet 180 thermostat, a sonnax LP booster and finally did the 03 TMR delete mod. I am still learning my way around the mechanical side of things. I love this forum for the wealth of knowledge and experience I can glean from. Kudos to all my hemi brethren especially the 03 guys.

I'm not sure what your saying. The lack of participation is very disappointing to all us us. Some of us have spent years here. Upgrading or modifying our trucks is what it use to all be about. It's more than that to many of us now.
If you'll look at most of the Topics on the main Forum page you'll quickly notice that no one is posting. When the economy tanked so did a lot of members ability to do what they wanted to their trucks.
The General Discussion Section has been a place to talk about any and everything that doesn't have a specific section. If your wanting to see just what's new try clicking on the "Find" and then "New Since Your Last Visit". That eliminates going through the topics your not interested in.
Many of us are hoping that next year will bring changes to a lot of things and increase the ability of folks to get back to work on their trucks....just my $.02 worth.

My Ram is the only Dodge truck for miles around. i love it the way it is and though an 04 model its what we call a HEAD TURNER down this neck of the woods. Some days I have to repeat myself a dozen times when i go to town because people want to talk.

i just clocked up 45000miles last week so i reckon I'll hit a 100 before the truck.

Mark, indeed they are head turners. Last month when I was in Manila there was a 98 Ram that pulled in. We just don't see the Dodges here and everyone was looking at it and asking questions. Actually great fun...
