Default Nominations for May 2017 Truck of the Month

We will have a theme this month. WORK TRUCKS! That's right. We want to see either your work truck (company trucks are fine as long as they're personally owned by you) or your truck doing truck stuff. No glamour shots here! We want to see them doing what they're meant to do. Mud? Absolutely. Trailers? Yep. Ladder racks? Why not. Hauling loads? Definitely.




Nominate away!

Guess I'll throw my hat in the ring, certainly don't expect to win but hey why not, I use my truck like a truck.

The 1st thing any truck owner should think about is a bed liner if you plan to work it, many flavors to choose from, I picked a BedTred Pro....



My first level view during a backyard project,....



How I leveled it,.... 750lbs of concrete and lumber



Y'all have a honey do list? Don't we all. Wife decided to enlist me in her landscaping project naturally, I forget how many hundreds of pounds of marble chips that was, my back remembers tho.



1 complete bedroom suite with a 2nd queen size bed for the guest room.



Another mod every truck owner needs whether they know it or not is some bull ring pocket cleats, they sure came in handy on that furniture haul.



Oh and to help carry those loads, some Monroe air shocks, just added them this past weekend.



Now lets see some trucks with battle scars and good luck everyone.

Absolutely, even if you don't plan to run the hell out of it, the next owner might and chances are you will put SOMETHING in the bed at some point in the truck's life.

Haha! Mine has a drop in and I might take it out an roll my own in. It's not perfect under it (from what I can see) but I just hate the plastic drop in's.
