    While I appreciate being a candidate in the August ROTM I have submitted a request to withdrawal. I would not be able to get a mod list together as I have a lot going on. There are some great trucks this month and my vote is in.
    Good luck everyone!

    [MENTION=53354]AMac[/MENTION]; If you don't want to be part of this, then I understand and we'll just pull you out and the 50% of people who have voted for you will have to vote for someone else. Just a reminder, you don't actually have to do anything but sit back and let people admire what you have already done on your sweet truck. So a mod list is nice, but I think people can see for themselves that you did a bunch of solid work in customizing your truck. Just my $.02.

    I wouldnt withdrawal from the ROTM. Its a very clean looking truck and i think you have a good chance at winning.

    I am surprised AMac has any paint left on her truck, she always has what appears to be the cleanest rig on the site. I wonder if she actually takes it out of storage?:rofl:
    AMac we all understand that it is your decision but goodness young lady look at the voting so far and this is a strong bunch of trucks.

    I support whatever your decision may be but I am pulling to see you ride it out and let the votes come where they may.

    I tend to agree with Amac as I also have mods in progress going on. Also the picture that was submitted for my ride is old and is missing a LOT of the mods that some other current pictures show including the brush guard removed, spikes on the flares, tinted windows, updated decals, well nevermind. Also to mention that we missed out on half of month. I was just assuming we would jump to September. But it is what it is.

    I know from inquiring about past selections that the pics that are usually chosen are selected in an attempt to present the trucks at roughly the same angles, if possible -- so that it's a kinda side-by-side type comparison. Deviations tend to be caused by someone not having a truck photo at a given angle, at which point the next closest angle is usually selected.

    That's what murdog, said, anyway, when he was doing the selections ... and it seems like a sane approach.

    I have a couple of thoughts on this.

    First, to compensate for having a shorter month, I did a mass email blast that sent a lot of traffic to the site and votes are coming in already. I anticipate that this will have just as many ... if not more votes than the average month.

    Second, if Amac really wants to back out (and I gave her a day to think about it) then I will remove her from the poll and that gives you a 1/3 chance of winning, instead of 1/4.

    Third, if you have another newer photo of your truck, please make a new album and upload it. I will swap out the photos and/or go ahead and link to your albums so people can do a one-click to see more photos.

    Steve, I appreciate everything you do for the site and can understand that it can have exhausting tasks. I think a link to the ROTM nominees albums is a great Idea. I also think that if members are considered moderators some of the tasks the site requires should be delegated to the ones that can fullfill the needs of the site. Such as ROTM nominee choices, Having it up on-time for all fairness (Since there are only 12 a year), Moving misplaced threads to their proper place, ect. I am by no means complaining as I enjoy the site the way it is. Just giving some possible ideas to make it better. What would be wrong with the nominees choosing the picture they would like for the ROTM. Or some time to get a good picture in their album. After all it is a judged competition and if the only picture that is available is old or is covered in rain with windshield wipers on and is dirty certainly doesnt give the owner a chance to give his best presentation. Anyway I appreciate being one of the nominees this month and I hope that Amac will reconsider because I know shes gonna leave me in the dust. All the trucks that get a chance to be even nominated for the ROTM always have something about them that catches peoples eye. Thanks GMTC and good luck everyone!!!

    The problem with that is that none of the previous ROTM nominees had such an edge. Also, a simple approach, really, is for people to just keep their albums up to date. After all, there's a lot more of us than there are Steves or mods, so work distribution really needs to be considered...

    Just looking to improve for the future. Besides the previous ROTM nominees, If they already havent won ROTM, could very well have that edge in future considerations. But lets just keep everything the same as that is the simpler approach.

    Umm, we've changed photos in the past all the time for ROTM nominees. Please upload a new photo and we will swap that out. We're also in the process of getting some new moderators and that will help things out a lot as well.

    Ok enough talk, let's get some voting done on this bad boy. On average over the years we ran contests for about three weeks, so 18 calendar days to vote is more than 2 1/2 weeks ... more than enough time to get voting in on this for the month.

    Thank you for all the members that have supported me. I guess it would be silly to withdraw at this point. I didn't expect the voter turnout to be so high since it was late in the game.

    My quick mod list includes
    4 feniex strobes behind the grille
    20" helo rims with nitto dura grapplers
    recon smoked tail lights
    spyder black projector headlights
    LED fog, parking, blinker, dome, reverse and license plate lights
    hood deflector, vent visors
    oem running boards, upgraded oem painted grille, painted mirror caps
    on order and waiting to receive HD front/rear shocks
    Flowmaster 40 series single dual exit

    Again, thank you
