Is that a "sponser mobile" ? I see all those stickers all over it.looks tight bro from the design. But if it a "sponsor mobile" than i see no pride in the truck at all.your ride has to be all your design and all about what you want.also work and pay for it all out of your pocket to have the pride for what you are showing.if its not a "sponser mobile" good job on it.

Im so sick of seeing this guys SHOW ONLY TRUCK. Its nice no doubt, But FFS I have drove nicer dailies and have seen WAY nicer dailies that dont even go to shows.

Its what we do bro.i have a dailly all customized and i dont take it to shows.2002 xtreme blazer.on the other hand i have that truck only for show as well.it started out as my work truck 8 years ago started doing a few things.started saving up the money to take it to a new level. It didnt just happen overnight.took many years of working hard and saving money to pay for this and that.it becomes an adicting hobby.maybee you should hit them up to split up the catagories to "dailly driver of the month" and show "truck of the month."

Well since we've gotten completely off the thread's topic already....

99SSchevy... i've typed up a rant about you doing that in another thread but deleted it because i don't like starting shit... It makes you look cocky... indeed.. your truck is nice... but necessarily a masterpiece or anything when someone says show truck i generally expect more... but all in all it just comes across the interwebz as cocky and arrogant...

I wish I had sponsers for mine! I don't get the whole "show Truck/car" thing anyway, if I can't drive it and use it for what it was meant to be then I don't need it. JMO though. Nice trucks anyway guys.
