I like the grey background, but the text is difficult to read. Especially the blue and the red on the tracking page. Additional color scheme options would be great, if available.

Scottina, there are a number of web "usability" studies that cover this topic.

For starters: White text on a dark background is particularly hard on geezer (over 40) eyes, which happens to be my demographic.

Some of it has to do with "halation", the tendency of white text to "glow" when presented on a black background.

Testing (Bauer and Cavonius 1980) has also found that participants were 26% more accurate in reading text when they read it with dark characters on a light background.

Re: Colour schemes

It looks nice from a distance - but for the purpose of READING - it simply sucks!

Re: Colour schemes

How about a blue background with dark text. Or red.

The now site is kind of hard to read.

Sorry for the inconviences guys. We can't even hope to please every member. Believe me....if it were my choice and doable.....each member would have their own template, custom made. We are trying to make jeepgarage the best experience we can....for the pretty much 0 budget we have. I hope everyone can make the best of it!

Scroll to the bottom of the page. There is a drop down menu on the bottom left hand corner. You can change it there.
