Passing this along in hopes that some folks in the DFW area can take advantage of an opportunity to make some mod money. I have not been active on this forum since I moved on to a 4Runner. As a past Moderator and Supporting Vendor of this forum I assure you there is not any sales involved. I have attended studies with this group MANY times and you have my word it's not a scam. You will enjoy yourself and make $150 just providing opinion and feedback. I know they are not looking for hardcore rock crawlers or mudders. They want to talk to folks that enjoy camping a 1-3 diamond rated trails. Here are the details:

Off Road Enthusiast: Dallas/Fort Worth
Research Design Specialists, an automotive market research company located in southern California is looking for participants that use their vehicles for off road, for an upcoming research study, the research study will be taking place in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in early April 2018.

Those who participate in the research study would be giving their opinions on current and future off-road vehicle designs, this study is self-paced and would last roughly 2.5-3 hours and once the participants complete the research study they would be compensated with a check for $150 for their time.

No Sales or marketing is involved; we are only interested in your opinions regarding the design of off-road vehicles.
Below is a list of the following 2007-2018 model years vehicles we are looking for:

With all the money I've poured into my FJ (and to a somewhat lesser degree my 4-Runner) they would probably eliminate me as a source of information since they would doubtless assume I have a rather inflated sense of what an offroad capable vehicle should be like. :laugh

What an awesome experience. I got two checks for $150 each. The first day was right at about 3 hours of Evaluating potential designs of a future vehicle. This was a cool process to be involved with and nice way to earn some extra cash (50hr), not bad at all. Today was supposed to be a follow up focus group. They overbooked and me and another was released. Talk about the fastest $150 I've made in about 15mins time. YES they paid me for coming out, even for not sitting in. Final point, this is not bait and switch, no attempts to sell anything, no need to buy. In the end, its cool think I might have helped shape a future 4WD Vehicle with my opinions.

If anyone is interested in studies like this, sign-up at Research Design Specialists and use User ID panel.

Fun times, indeed!
It was pretty cool to offer my opinions on the designs and interiors.
My only complaint was that the focus group I was in spent too much time on the interior designs and not enough on the exterior. I had quite a few opinions about them, lol.
Still, I felt like they listened.
Steve, it was good seeing you both days.

I agree it was a great experience! Sucks that your group spent soo much time on the interior Willy. In my group we had 2 - FJ owners, 2 - 4 runner owner and 2 - Jeep owners. We really got into the details of the exteriors and the moderator was very intrigued by our discussion and genuinely interested. I would love to do more of these and I am REALLY hoping they take everyone’s input and apply it to a serious vehicle.
