Just a heads up...I plan on shutting down the 3500HD Forum. I can use the 3500HD resources for my other forums that are beginning to slow down.

If there is any reference material please take the time to copy it in the next week or so.

Thanks to everyone for participating and contributing all these years!

Take care

Ed

Thanks for all the hard work, Ed.  This site has been a valuable resource.  I'll be sad to see it go, but I totally understand.

That said, I have downloaded an offline-browsable archive of the entire website.  If anyone would like a copy for future reference, comment below and I'll see if I can upload the folder somewhere.  I think it's a little under 2GB of material.

Thanks again, Ed!  Best of luck in your future endeavors.

:(

Sad but totally understandable.  Thanks, Ed.

bridgepainter - I'd sure be interested in the archive; I may be able to host it.  I'll have to check my hosting plan but I'm reasonably sure I have the capacity.

Checked - I've absolutely got the space for the archive.  Would probably be trivial to set up an FTP account if you wanted to upload it directly, or if you have somewhere else to upload it to and you're OK with me hosting it as well, just let me know.

Hey someotherguy: I'm not super knowledgeable about computers, I did some googling and used a program called Web Copier to pull it down.  The folder's 1.76GB.  How would you like me to get it to you?

I would like some of the info also. There is too much valuable info here to let it go. Could it be possible to be a sub forum on one of the other truck websites?
