If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
I respectfully disagree. Chevy does it every year.
I agree, for years they had square wheel openings- wheel openings should be the same shape as the tires. And the crossbar spitting the grill in 2 hurts the looks even worse. They're recent heavy duty trucks are among the homeliest they've ever built. Toyota builds some ugly cars with pickup boxes but I don't consider them trucks.

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
I think every make has made some ugly trucks, it's all relative... Personally, I like square bodied trucks.

Vehicles should look like they match their intended purpose. Cars and pick up trucks should look like vehicles, not like transformers. Passenger cars should be sedate, with big doors and comfortable seats, and plenty of storage and good mileage. Sports cars should look sporty and be aggressive.

Pick up trucks should be functional, big red wagons, with functional accessories, but with the ability to personally upgrade or alter.

And big trucks should look like big boxes with a truck pulling them, not an airline fuselage.

Big buses seem to be under control at the moment

My two cents…

Some hints for taking decent pics.
Don't face the sun.
Try to be in full sun, not shadows.

It's no wonder @rusty ol ranger is a truck driver and not a photographer for hustler 😆


16 year olds the world over are thankful for that, I'm pretty sure.

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
often...ugly is unique and can spur both positive and negative conversations...


both of my trucks are ugly. and require current tetnus shots...and as you can see....are not alone.



my truck has been labeled racist as well. ugly redneck racist pos. that has been cause for concern a few times.

i have been attacked by well meaning jesus people.....E.L.F......prius groups.....MTM mudders for stating facts they did not agree with....police from every state this side of the Mississippi and several on the other side.....and as mentioned a panhandler actually gave me ten dollars...though i do think he was being funny ... it is a business in detroit at many of the off ramps...

so rusty ol ranger of the month can mean alot of things...
