How We Started:
 

Back in ’02 when Randy began the C3 Owners Group on MSN, he had just purchased a C3 and couldn’t find any other place where owners could gather to discuss and brag up those fine vehicles. So, he started something….. the group at MSN.com. It provided a Forum for owners and enthusiats to exchange information. Two years and almost four hundred members later, the site exceeded his expectations a hundred-fold! Another interesting dynamic emerged. The site was gaining new members much faster than in its early days. He partially attributed this to the fact that many three year leases on the C3 and Sierra Denali were expiring and a whole new group of owners (those buying used) had emerged. These new owners were asking many of the same questions we discussed in detail two years ago. “How do I lower my truck?” “What kind of oil do I use in the rear diff?” “How do I keep my steering wheel controls for my new head unit?” The list goes on and on.

There is a ton of great information in past discussions held on the old MSN site as well as many pictures. The downside is that most of it is virtually impossible to find since MSN.com has not seen fit to upgrade their free service to include a search function. Frankly, this rendered the archives of our old MSN site nearly useless. Without a searchable database, we had outgrown MSN.com and it was time to upgrade.

Therefore we began a new site here DenaliTrucks.com with the intent to build features and content to appeal to the owners and fans of the GMC Denali line of trucks and SUVs but without the restrictions of the old site. You may be wondering what will happen to the MSN.com group site. It will remain for several reasons. First, we have a wealth of knowledge housed there that can be linked to this new site. Second, it can still serve new members who are interested in the content there. Third, it can help direct new members to our new location.

We welcome you to our new home here at DenaliTrucks.com, and hope you enjoy the new site as much as we do.

The staff - Butch, Eug and Randy

 

About our Founders:

When we decided to start AWDGM (which became DenaliTrucks.com) we asked the MSN GMC C3 Owners Group members if they would like to contribute to help with the start up costs to get the site kicked off. We were amazed at the response we recieved and financial support which was enough to get the site started with a little extra to keep things running for a while. We honor these Founding Members with a special distinction in the Forum and double the storage space in our Gallery, in appreciation for their startup contribution.
