isn't it obvious? gl4x4 is the best thing michigan has and the wheelers in other states are clearly jealous.

the more the merrier

Quite a few of them are people that have left the state due to lack of jobs and have friends here.

I know I'm one. I joined up a few years ago and recently moved to Cali. Either way though this site is the best IMO for whatever type of wheeling you wanna do. Just because I moved outta state doesn't mean I can't still get help from this site.

85% of the members here will never leave the web, so what's it matter where they are located?

Where else you gonna go?
Pirate? sure if you want to show off awesome fab skills and such
Jeepform If you need to know who makes the best 31's

Honestly I think you can get some of the best answers on the web here
plus if you google its usually pirate than Gl4x4 as the top results

Fixed that for ya so it reflects the site a bit more.


Actually agree that a lot of them are either people who moved away due to the economy, or met someone where they live who moved there due to the economy.

We could require a birth certificate to prove they are a "natural born" Michigander.
And not born in Mombassa or such....

I belong to so many sites its just ridiculas. I alway have a few that are on the top of my list, but this site is the most varied for the people and oppinions that I find. secondly the majority of other sites have mods that treat everyone like 7 year olds. granted I'm not perfect but I have to say we get away with alot here.

x2 all around. Moved back to WA since I'm still in the Navy, checked out a few groups and sites out here, not impressed. This site is just the best, between the trash talking and the moderators there is a lot of useful information and an entertainment value that I haven't found anywhere out here.

I'd be screwed haha. I was born here in Cali but grew up in MI pretty much.
I still like MI better.

I left MI a little over a year ago, and still I have a lot of friends on this site. I dont wheel, and this site has become more of a social site than a wheeling site anyways, so I stick around.

im not triing to offend anyone i was just saying its getting a little annoying where i find a part id like, but cant pick up mostly because its on the other side of the country or beyond the ohio border. i just dont want to see this site end up like pirate where you gotta wheel n deal with people all across the country. i like this site cause when i needs parts off here they are typically close enough that i dont mind driving 3 hours to get them. dont get me wrong i like talking to fellow wheelers but when they post parts for sale and live in texas it kinda pisses me off. sorry if i offended any of you

That's why I like it here, you can speak your mind and the mods don't get but hurt and edit your posts and ban you every other day and clarkstoncracker is badass


As long as you try and spell shit right and don't bump your sale thread more then once a day that is .

This is actually going to be addressed shortly. You're not the first person to let me know that this is becoming more common.
