Holy crap guys! Shocked

First, I know Jeremy personally (he's a most excellent friend and fellow Jeeper) and I've been giving him tidbits of advice for his Jeep, I also told him to check out our outstanding board, because everyone here is incredibly knowledgeable. Not like that other "non-mentioned" board, where all you get is wise ass comments/replies.

Was his reply to ehirner over the top? Yes, IMHO I think it was, but fellas c'mon, we have ALL been there, he is asking for HELP and OPINIONS on a specific item and was immediately slapped down after his very first post, not the type of welcome I got or have seen others get in the past.

I KNOW there have been MANY aftermarket parts I've purchased in the past and their installation instrucions SUCKED! I'm going to be helping him install these and asked him to post up here to see if anyone had any tips/tricks/possible pitfalls for the installation of the bumpers. I also advised him on his purchase of bumpers, for his trail use, budget constraints, and expectations I think it's a wise choice, but again that's only MHO...I'm sure he was looking for re-assurance from other/fellow Jeepers who have actual hands on experience with this particular product.

I know Jeremy felt that his back was against the wall immediately after asking for a bit of advice and help, he's a firey dude...so don't take his reply to heart, IMHO he's a great guy. I talked up the board a lot and he was expecting an entirely different greeting/response. I'm not condoning his reply to ehirner, just trying to explain it, at least how I see it...


Can we have a group hug or something? LOLOL

Jerm, give me a call this weekend and we'll git er done!
