Exclamation READ: Old Threads/'Necro-Bumping'

Do your part to keep the forums tidy, BEFORE you post, LOOK at the date the thread was started and the dates of the last few posts. Posting in old threads, or 'necrobumping' is generally discouraged in the subforums, since it can potentially create disjointed 'zombie' information; outdated posts with data which is no longer relevant due to the rolling nature of membership, changes in part numbers or technical service bullitens, recall information, part availability and sources, and combined with more recent posts reflecting more current circumstance.

"OLD Threads" are not weeks or even months old, OLD threads are 1, 2 and 3 year + OLD.

USE the SEARCH feature FIRST!

Rules of thumb

■If you have a question, start a new thread and link to the old if relevant.
■If you have something to add and judge that your information is related, but more up-to-date, start a new thread and link to the old if desired, but avoid duplicating effort by posting information already contained in the Archived Thread Section, sticky threads (at the top of the forum) and the old thread itself.
■If you have a version-agnostic or corresponding solution, necrobumping can be appropriate in limited circumstances.

Doc Olds is correct, it really takes little time to do a "search" for similar threads and find what you need answered.
We have all seen questions asked of subjects that were covered months maybe years ago.
A simple "search" could answer your particular question.

"Hey, my lights on my truck are dim, what kind of bulb or kit should I get",
sound familiar ??

Considering how few people run and maintain this site would surprise most of you, it did me.

Leave the twitter responses to Charlie Sheen's site, he needs more
As far as necro bumping, that has to be illegal in some states, no ?

This rule "slightly" contradicts sticky #2 in the "new member area" forum. Don't ban me Doc, I'm just sayin!!!! (and causing hate & discontent on a humorous level, plus this sticky is over a year old!). Lol....
