I must be a rare bread. I'm a Ram guy because i grew up Mopar. I follow 5th gen rams, moparinsiders, and allpar. HDrams is blocked by my computer for some reason. And i think the dodge lineup is the most exciting it has ever been in my lifetime...though i dearly miss the viper.
Same here. I only have a Ram because I've only owned MOPARS since my 79 Plymouth Horizon TC-3.

Not that rare !!! I've been a Mopar fan since I was a young man Aunts and Uncles had Challengers and Cudas and that kind of set the standard for me.....I only strayed away from Mopar once in my 38 years of driving and that was because at the time I needed a small economical car but I had numerous Dodge Dakotas and Ram trucks and even a few oldies along the way 65 Plymouth Satellite,69 Chrysler 300, 69 Dodge Dart GTS 340 4 speed, 71 Dodge Demon 340, 71 Dodge Dart Swinger 340, 73 Charger Rallye 340, and then my Dodge Dakota years 88,92,95 and then my 1999 and my 02 Ram I loved them all and the community that came with it but I didn't care for the Ram crowd as much as I did the Dakota and Old School iron. It is like the modern day Mopars have that same vibe they just aren't a true Mopar Fanatic and I can sense that whenever I am around the crowd.

I've found it a challenge to find threads I was looking for pertaining to articles and thread duplicity exacerbates that issue.
I would link every article to the forum thread specific to that article so that the two are forever linked. That makes it much easier to find what one is looking for as well as reduce the rate of duplicitous threads (I think I found five different threads, at least, pertaining to the TRX).
As far as moparinsiders, 5thgenrams, and HDrams, I don't understand that. I would have created one main site with three subsites:
moparmadness.com
insiders.moparmadness.com
5thgenrams.moparmadness.com
HDrams.moparmadness.com

Or, conversely:
moparmadness.com
moparmadness.com/insiders
moparmadness.com/5thgenrams
moparmadness.com/HDrams

That way, everything is under the same authentication/database, but can still be linked separately.
Allpar has a cleaner, less cluttered look, and I have found it easier to find what I'm looking for in the forums, but the constant barrage of negativity is unappealing. It doesn't affect my fondness for Mopar, but makes me want to visit the site a whole lot less often. As to forums vs. comments . . . I spend more time in forums than leaving comments because the people in forums seem to be much more knowledgeable. The things I see in article comments are just ludicrously stupid sometimes. You see that in a forum on occasion, but not nearly as often. The internet is the wild west, so that is to be expected, but the sorts of people who take the time to get into the forums tend to be more serious minded people and I greatly appreciate those interactions. Some comments are so far out there they don't warrant any attention at all.
