      Just wanted to say Kudos to Rick and company for another (relatively) painless site upgrade!! Good job gang!!

      Anyone have a screen shot of the first incarnation of this site? I don't, but I do know the site's come a long way in the last decade!! Heck, I was browsing it using NCSA Mosaic back then (predecessor to Netscape)...

      Rick, do you think it could be possible to summarize some of the changes that were made this time around? I hate going on a scavenger hunt trying to figure out what's different... I know some of the icons changed, but I have no idea what the new stuff at the bottom of every page is for and such... It might be helpful if there was like a bullet-point list of the major now 'toys' that came with the site.

      (e.g. the panic button, boxes around everything, etc, etc...)

      Thanks!! Keep up the good work!!

      I have been here awhile :) Just bought my 7th Explorer and was on my 1st when I joined. Sheesh. And that doesnt include the 2 rangers during the time.

      Bravo.

      That's cool you still have that info Rick. I remember how much time I gawked at the "reader's rides" page (at least 2 years before I registered on the forum).

      http://www.explorer4x4.com/rides5.html

      It's funny how those were some of the most hard core explorers out there. It was a pretty bold move to modify a $25,000 SUV back in the 90s.

      Bumping this as we have been around a long time! I found it pretty cool to look over the old stuff again.
