First, thanks to all of those who've already upgraded.

To help support this forum, you can now find a link right at the top of the forum to "Become a CJ-8.com Supporter" and it takes you to the options for paid membership.

never having to worry about paying again! Unless you want to of course!

CJ-8.com is not the Scrambler Owners Association
For clarification, CJ-8.com is completely separate from the Scrambler Owners Association. CJ-8.com hosts the SOA specific forums that SOA members can access. So in joining the SOA, while obviously a great organization, it does nothing to support this forum overall or CJ-8.com.

Hope that helps to clarify, it's a very common misperception. If anyone has any questions on membership, don't hesitate to ask.
