June 2012 TOTM

For our first 2012 Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest the theme is:

Four Steps Away!

Since it has been a while for this group, our theme this month will feature our 4x4 trucks. Let us check out the criteria or rules in order to compete in this month’s contest.
  • Open to all year 4x4 Stepside or the later style Sportside Trucks.
  • The vehicle nominated needs to belong to a board member during the time of the contest.
  • It must be together and able to move on its own power.
  • The truck has to be licensed for street use.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2011 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category.

To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate the vehicle. The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck. Once you decide on who you wish to nominate, just add your nomination to this thread. We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, the year of the truck, and any other specs of the truck (interior details, engine/drive train specs) that you may want to provide.

Nominees will run through May 24. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. I normally use 1 picture showing a good front-side view and 1 with a rear view of the vehicle in the voting threads. If the owner has a preferred picture they want used in the contest, please let me know in a PM. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing the pictures for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up by May 25 in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all that voting has begun. The Poll will run thru the morning of June 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of June 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
