In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Put a drop cloth down first before you slide under so you don’t ruin your clothes
Oh, no, no, no, no. That side is all banged up.

I noticed that some of you guys have a pathway/link in your signature to your build pages. How do I add that to my signature?

There is a little chain link in the top menu when you go to post, click that, you can put the address for what to link to in the URL and then you can put what you want it to post as in the "text" box.

Go to your build thread and "copy" the link from the address bar at the top of the page. It will look like this;
"https://www.therangerstation.com/forums/index.php?threads/the-road-ranger-1997-semi.202008/page-24#post-2002661"

Then go to your account profile. You will see a button for "signature". Click that. A box will pop up. Then click the little chain link icon. In the url box, paste the link that you copied. In the next box, type what you want it to be called.

See? Now there's a link to your build in my signature. Ha-ha!!!!

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
How many vehicles can you nominate at one time?

Wouldn’t that defeat the purpose of the whole thing? Only one will be chosen per month. Nominating too many just muddies the waters. Save some for future months.

Lead follow or get out of my way
I say nominate any truck you feel worthy.

It may expose trucks that some people are unaware of. I know for myself... I don't follow the mini trucks closely... I know they're here but I couldn't point out but a couple.

My point is... let's get them out in front of everyone. If your nomination doesn't make that month... nominate it again next month. People spend a bunch of time and money on their trucks... let's recognize ALL of them... repeatedly if necessary.

I'm not afraid to say my sometimes unpopular opinion....

Pretty stoked TOTM is coming back. Everytime I buy a new ranger I troll through all the old winners looking to steal ideas/inspiration.

Here’s my current 1994, 4.0, that was supposed to be just a trail truck, but now finds itself as my daily most days. It’s just so easy to park and rides so darn good with the new suspension setup.
Those are some pretty sweet action shots.

Are you going to make a sticky for Nominations or how that going to work?

Some of the coolest trucks here ARE made from multiple donor vehicles.
So we have to know the ancestry if we nominate someone? Or else we have to nominate each one of the ancestors every month? I’m confused…

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.

I think that a blood test can determine if it actually is your truck or not; or, maybe I'm getting that confused with something else . . .

YOU'RE the doctor that delivered it; can't you operate on it, or get it some kind of therapy?

Is it just me, but it just doesn't seem like we had these kinds of problems, back in the good old days, when it was just Ford, Chevy and Dodge, and gas was a quarter a gallon. Or, was it that cigarettes were a quarter a pack?
