Truck of the month

Is there a reason that a truck of the month hasnt been selected in a really long time? Just wondering. Not that I think I'm even a candidate, but it'd be fun to do this on a regular basis.

The reason they wont do the Truck of the Month is because they realized I would win it every month, and that wouldn't be fair to the other members.

totm sucks, you want some bragging rights, then get in a magazine. Everyone has their favorite truck on the site for different reasons. 75% of this sites members prefer the look of a lifted truck to lowered, you can reply with not me, or you appreciate both but you're in that 25% and it doesnt change anything.

if you really need that gratification for you're own vehicle then submit pics to different magazines. If you wanna show support to another members truck... PM them.

after like 5-6 months no one would see the point anymore. either that or the same like 3 trucks would win every month.

what i have seen on other forums, is if you win, you can't enter for like 3 months or something so more people have a chance to win.

How about it not mattering if the truck is lifted or lowered? Is it not possible to take the truck, leave it at the stock height but improve other parts of it? I guess this is why there is no TOTM...too much bickering, haha.

I just posted because I seen the last totm was last september and hadn't seen any previous threads as to why we didn't still do it. Didn't mean to cause world war 3.

they should do a match up thing every week.

it would work by everyone that wanted to be in the matches submitted themselves and then each week the mods or someone pulled 2 randomly and then they'd have a poll for a week as to which is better then that one wins. and different trucks every week... just an idea
