    Joshthepilot: I think you have a good idea going there. I have found a few threads i would like to be stickies which are not though. And its a pain in the *** to try and find them again. Sure i should have bookmarked them like a smart user but its sometimes hard to think of that stuff at 4 am.

    I think the search should be left there so cuz i like that feature. But we also need to have more things covered in stickies as well. And put a disclaimer at the top of the forum in big *** letters telling newbies to check stickies first or be prepared to get verbally bashed. I mean i dont mind getting bashed if i ask a dumb *** question. Hell if i deserve it let me have it.

    Oh i almost forgot. Havent found a reliable source for importing monkeys yet...LOL

    sansoo24: Sorry I offended you. And as you can see, I am a newbie too. I have just pretty much finished my first carputer, but have been working on computers and doing stero installs for a long time. And I am gearing up to to do a major install in a buddy's truck. I was not attempting to be a smart ***, I was simply trying to point out the fact that some newbie's don't search. And I know that searching sometime doesn't help, but atleast every 2 or 3 days someone asks a simple inverter question or dc-dc power supply question. Granted if you search for them you will end up with a ton of posts, but if they took the time to read just 2 or 3 of them I am sure there question would be answered. I do agree with you on the stickies, they have actually answered most of my questions. As for the bash on the Ranger, well, I can't do anything for your lack of taste, so far mine is the only one I have seen with my color/options. But it does leave me with one question for you, Ford Ranger #1 selling Compact Truck for how long?
    Install { 50% } Complete for now.
    But stable and running happily

    Sorry SVT i just had a bad day with those damn search icons and took it out on you. If your ranger is an SVT than i really cant bash it. But i have known a lot of people with low end 4 cyl. rangers that dont last. Im personally a Tacoma man myself. Ive had one run for a 140,000 miles with no problems what so ever.

    And i know just cuz it says newbie by your screen name it doesnt mean you dont have any experience. Ive done lots of audio installs too, but im still planning my Carputer. And once again im sorry for the bash it was uncalled for i know. But i am a sarcastic bastard at heart and i must do what comes natural...LOL.

    If you get time post some pics of your install when its done. Being that we both have compact trucks id like to see how you did yours.

    My Ranger is almost at 155K miles and running like a champ.
    I AM the noob here, doing my part to search before I speak, lol.
    I'd love to see the pics also, as I need some installation ideas.

    Another tip is to use descriptive topics. I know I'm guilty of not doing this sometimes too, but you'll get more responses if people know exactly what you're asking or close to it by the topic.

    As for the sticky or search idea. I'm not huge fan of a bunch of stickies because it clutters the forums and pushes new topics further down. The search does work decently. I say do both for newbs with questions. Read the stickies and search. If you can narrow your question to a specific forum you can scroll through previous posts.

    Overall this place kicks *** (arse for your overseas brethren).

    Haha good to know we aren't forgotten. I'm seeing more and more use of the American-English "***" here in Australia and call me patriotic but it ****es me off. (No offence intended to Americans)

    ...so what does 0|33| mean anyway?
