I was pondering the idea of having something for the 80 series guys, and hijacking the idea from the 100's and 60's about a registery or picture album in the sticky section. So...here goes, hopefully we'll get it moved to the sticky.

1. Year and model
2. Name of owner
3. Name of rig
4. Mileage
5. Mods...if any
6. How the truck is used
7. Photo. again...small to save space :)

Yeah... if you look in the 60 registery, there is nothing really different between the two, but might as well give us something to do with our endless nights on Mud. Haha

This is not anything like the ROTW, this is for everyone and anyone who wants to show us their rig. Feel free to. That's why its here. Well...now anyway's.

Reffug - agree but nevertheless would be nice to have a bunch of different 80s shown in the same thread as a sticky, some of us might not really be into the ROTW thing because we might feel that our rigs aren't badass enough to stand the comparison with the previous, impressive ROTWs. Keeping it simple with only one pic might help to make that thread readable and enjoyable. My 2 cents as well. :cheers:

ROTW has nothing to do with being badass..........................

It's about being an 80 owner.

Oh and I forgot to mention my 02 is really worth about .25 .............................

You have the thread title already. edit your posts to make it a 'registry' as you suggest. if there is enough merit to the idea the posts will come and the moderators will probably sticky it. if not it will slip down a few pages and disappear. i think it might be a good idea. it will give newbies a quick thread to browse through to view lifts and tires and stop the incessant posting about each instead of just clicking 'search.' oh wait sorry for the editorial. i think i'll start.
