Selling Planet 4x4 and all that goes with it. Sale does NOT include 4x4 Country. I dont have time to run both and one of them has to go. Before sale, 4x4 Country will be completely split from Planet.

Buyer must be able to handle PHP coding, understand how to setup a website and at least be able to mess with MySQL databases (Or know somebody that does). Site currently uses two different databases to run. Does not include the VBullitin license (Thier TOS does not allow you to transfer it) so you will have to purchase a new one. Purchase comes with everything that you can see here. All articles, trip reports, everything.

I would suggest you have a really good highbandwidth connection. You will be online a lot answering PM's and email and dealing with issues. Site is currently upgraded to the latest software revision. You will need to get your own hosting account and I like ENOME to move domain names around. You could still get away with a shared hosting plan but it must have Zend Optimzer to run (Most do).

It will run fine at :Web Hosting by IPOWERWEB

Site will not be ready for a purchase for a few weeks so think about it. This is a lot of work and will cost you money every year. However its a good site with a lot of custom work and has a great userbase. I can help you get it up and running but then, it will be yours, I will not be involved in it anymore except as a regular user including the yearly Moab Mash. Buyer will need a business Paypal account also and thats all I can think of right now.

Site does barely pay for itself from ads right now. It could be made more profitable and that route will be up to the purchaser.

PM me with serious offers only. Site will not go cheap, way too much work and content has been put here. And always, I might be up for a trade. I'm a sucker sometimes.

This is not a joke. I have my reasons and that is that.

Thank you.

I hope so too. I really enjoy my time on here. It seems pretty involved and technical I am not. You have a great opportunity here.

I'm going to use the traffic and direct it to porn sites for a percentage kickback.

No, what I'll do is strip it down to a bare forum and leave it up to wear I dont really have to mess with it.

Well shoot Chris, if you had to choose between all the above you'd probably just stand in the center of the room and spin,,,,you'd never get anything done:thumb::goodjob:

Yeah, Matt!!! Details please....
I'm sure Matt will be happy to supply his business details to the public, right after everyone else on this forum post up theirs..seems only fair. I would think the only important thing to us is if the sites going to remain as is or not

Sorry guys, I should have done that.

Planet 4x4 has a buyer and this place is going to stay like this for a while at least. No official announce yet as we are still hammering out the details but I'm pretty happy with it and I think you will be too. Its another wheeler and some of you on the board already know him. Its going to real good hands.
