So. I picked up a 91 ranger just to cruise the powerline and play in the mud. After lots of work (only paid a couple hundred for it) I am ready to take it to a poker run/mud run this coming weekend. I was going to name it Oscar the grouch because there was so much garbage left in it, it looked like a garbage can. However, kid called it "kind of an ugly ducking aint it?" and I thought that would be funny too.
However, what else? Here's a couple pic's.
Its a 4L with a manual 5 spd. Dana 35/8.8, 3:55 gears, open rearend. It could only be 16ft maximum in length to fit my toy hauler/motorhome so I pulled the box, cut the frame off behind the shackles, pulled the front bumper and installed four D rings for WHEN I get buried with the little 215's. Where I'm going has a set of 33's I can put on for the weekend but to fit in the hauler I'll have to swap back to the 215's.

Anyway....name....(and piece of rusty shit is not a real name even if it is dead on...)

Do your best to be your best.
You don't say where you are from. That could have something to do with the proper attitude in a name.
Until I know further I will suggest a name, but remember a name should reflect attitude.
Outlaw........yeah..............Outlaw. :icon_thumby:

This may be a stretch, but name it Shredder... only because he fell into a garbage truck in the first TMNT movie in 1990 (a year off from yours) and since you mentioned the trash point.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Why not just the "Mud Truck" or the "Beater"?
