Thread content..

I love searching here.

If you search big tires, lifted, leveled, or any other non-work truck term you get 90,000 matches.

Yet search for something like "helper springs", "overload springs", etc, you know, like if you were actually using your truck for work rather than a toy and you get like nothing.

Very depressing.

Use the Google search option. It is better than the vBulletin search option.

Yeah I'm noticing that. I'm getting a lot of hits at ford-trucks, perhaps that's more oriented for what I'm looking for and powerstroke.org is more of a 'tuner' site. ?

No there is an embedded google search feature here. If you select the search function then input your info into the bottom field then google will just search this site.

the search option needs to search what you type as a whole, not each individual word

The problem with the search function is that everybody has their mods in their signatures so everybody that has what you are asking comes up. The google search works much better.

I like that Firefox theme, Josh.

and guys, the OP is complaining about the content on the site, not the search function.
