April 2017 Truck of the Month (ToTM)

Many of us in our hobby feel like a truck is a regular cab, that anything more than 2 doors is a waste. Then there are those of you who want the

More Door Mover

Thatís right, the theme for Aprilís Truck of the Month (ToTM) is the crew cab trucks. Here is the criteria for this monthís contest.
  • Open to all yearsí crew cab trucks, factory or home-built.
  • The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck.
  • The truck 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 2016 TOTM winner, then you are ineligible. If the truck was nominated but not selected as a TOTM winner, then it 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 ownerís board name, the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominations will run through March 24. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the ownerís board name, the Make/Model/Year of vehicle. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. 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 March 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 April 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the evening of April 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Yeah, I never noticed the power loss until I rebuilt it. Wow what a difference but still 8-9 mpg. Oh well I love the truck so it works for me.
