I wouldn't buy anything from Eddie either. I think he is a snake in the grass and wouldn't trust much he says unless I confirm elsewhere. This is just my personal opinion of the guy and he hasn't done anything to me directly. I see how he treats others and have read some horrible things he has said and done to others. I would definitely not support anything he has to do with.
That's too bad. I enjoyed watching his offroad trips and is probably what really got me digging around on YouTube to watch other channels. After reading some threads with a quick Google search, I'm honestly blown away. I've been watching his videos for years. Glad I've been given a different perspective; I can't support that.Well you hit on about 90% of it. He pulled all those same things back in the day when owned JK forum. Several of us didn't bow down to him and we just got deleted. Not banned. Completely deleted. I posted hundreds of how toos and tech info. One day I asked a question about the new teraflex rocksliders. Bam deleted. Then when I went and looked for it all my threads were gone. Excpet some with just tech info. He changed those too make it look like he posted them.
But thats gone now too since he sold it to a forums group. Add to that all the other koolaid drinking stuff you mentioned and he's one of the view people in the Jeep world I won't deal with. Shit I won't even watch his videos. Makes me sick him seeing a nickel of ad revenue off me.
This thread in particular set me off.
Dude got obliterated by the members for mentioning brands and "competitor's" forums. Admins ended up blocking him, changing his name from "Bquay20" to "BeQueer20", changing his avatar to a guy wearing a dildo, and Eddie finishing the attacking with "Don't let the door hit you in the ass as you leave." Original poster literally came in providing some advice on what size lift and all to use as a novice Jeeper and got destroyed because he used brands that didn't sponsor [Banned Site] and mentioned that he got advice from a different forum. HOLE. LEE. SHIT.
Anyway, sorry to go off on a tangent @Oscar Indy , I'm just blindsided.
EDIT: LOL the forum automatically changes the name to [Banned Site]. That's hilarious.
