I think we're better off without it

Alon said it well.

^^ Agreed. Never hurts to look up info about other's trucks, if at nothing else for an idea of what they've done. Part of the TOTM concept in my opinion is acknowledge the work or contributions of members to a forum. To each their own.

[Sarcasm] Of course you would say that Maurice because of course you know you would win one.


But seriously you will win it if we ever have one.

TOTM is a terrible idea for our community. The dramatic changes to our vehicles we would have to make would take more than a month to afford and complete. And like Dirty says, 99.5 % of the members' trucks here look the same. The same 4 people would win every time. If they really need an ego boost go for it.

Let me just congradulate Zabeard, Highroller, Badkarma, and I dunno ....someone else for their repeat victories now.

a body lift and 33 BFG's should not earn you truck of the month, but that's the set up that most members are running.

If you think "your" truck is special, submit it to a magazine
If you think someone else's truck is pretty, send them a PM.

* "you" is directed at any member here on R-F*

some peoples trucks are bone stock cause they went for function mods over fassion mods.....for instance, Frank (pastfinder).....his struck looks stock, but it is far from it.....and i like it because he went for mods that were nice and functionable that were never offered in a Ranger...
