Long timer looker

Iíve had my Commander for about 3 years now. Been here many times to get great info. I saw that there was a new requirement for the profile info and to post an introduction. So I figured I would go ahead and do it. Since I have had my Commander, I have put 5100 series bilsteinís on it. I have the front set to the lowest setting to get a level stance, about 3/4Ē. Iím running Cooper AT3ís 255/65/17 with factory wheels right now. Iím going to be in need of tires in a few months, Iím thinking about getting 1.25Ē wheel spacers and going to a 265 width tire. I also need to replace the upper control arms. Iím going to go with the JBA control arms. Other than that, not much planned for it. Thanks for all the great info the past 3 years.

Yes sir, I know exactly what that is about.

You are referring to this;



Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do nick91rs;

This problem has to be corrected by the member that posted the images that you can't see - not by you.

The "Please Update Your Account To Enable 3rd Party Hosting" message you are seeing, is referring to the posting member's photobucket account - not to your jeepcommander.com user account.

Photobucket offered 3rd party image hosting for free for over a decade.

This past June, they decided to start charging for this service; $400.00 a year, which works out to about $33.33 a month - which doesn't sound too bad.

The issue is that the only option they offer to buy a subscription, is an annual subscription, which means you have to come up with the entire $400.00 all in one shot - and obviously, that's an issue for some people.

The image you see above, is someone with a photobucket account, who was using photobucket's free third party image hosting and either opted not buy a subscription and/or is not an active member of this forum any longer, so, the link for the image will remain broken unfortunately.

Most of the time when you come across this, you will see it has been posted by a member who is no longer active on the forum - meaning they have not posted in quite some time.

Thanks for updating your profile.
