A big thank you to everyone who participated by submitting photos and casting votes.

The next contest will kick off the first week of April!
 
Congrats! Isn't this the first 23my to win the TOTM?
 
Congratulations my fellow Nevadan!

Hopefully a handful of us will see your truck next month at the meet. I should've won since I was caught in a stressful, booby trap 🤪

@Modman, you couldn't mention I got fourth place, could ya!? Those poor, hardworking, voluptuous women deserve at least that. 🤣

@modified Can you finally switch it up next month, do something different, like the best parking job at the local mall.

Something refreshing and funny, for years it’s exact same thing you can tell guys are trying to cater their photos to the winning formula format. It’s just not interesting anymore. You can tell the above truck ain’t even close to offroading, he’s just there for the money sunset shot showing off his shiny new mods. That’s my honest opinion on what the contest has become.

If parking is strongly considered, I hope you post that parallel shot again. I'll try to do a parking job like the video I posted earlier next to the Bentley that took up two spots 🤪

Even your last entry photo was fun to look at, something different for a change. All is i’m trying to get across, lets switch it up from time to time where a mall crawling guy like me can participate😀
 
I don't want to turn this into an internet war over some pictures but I have been on the running on a few of these monthly contest and not only do I always meet full criteria, I also seem to be overthrowned by the all-too-typical "portrayal" shot that was so elegantly set up and taken.

While the criteria was "dominating or extraordinary" shot against a setting or natural terrain, for the few that happen to catch that snapshot of what was an eventful and real-life situation, we will never stand a chance to claim a month. After all, it's the forum members who decides who gets the vote and majority wins.

To add to @Alpoba post - we also need a month where the captures are taken out in the wild or country side terrain but who can mantain the cleanest truck because its obvious these are all staged and this seem to be common picture posted and subsequently the winners.

Certainly no offense to @04sshd who staged a perfectly outstanding shot agaisnt the sun and received the most votes but it also seems that if you are not running Carli and sittting on 37s, you don't fit in.

Kuddos to the winner and no doubt a beautiful rig.

For what it's worth, I think I should get an award for being the only member online. Now that, is super difficult to pull off 🤪

For the award trophy:

"Only Member Online. Taken at 1:24 a.m. on March 18th, 2024. For fifteen minutes, Optimus was the only member on the Tremor Forum."

I really want to thank those that didn't participate and I'm asking the moderators to create an OMO badge. Thank you so much.

That's only because I had to go to sleep early to get up the next morning for a planned hike in the mountains. :ROFLMAO:
 
Congrats!!! Great picture!!!!! I’m 5th, guess that makes me the 4th loser….

Mods I demand next month’s TOTM category be ONLY available to XLT’s in white, with a truck camper mounted AND say TRAMPER on the bedsides as well as the license plates. Can’t we get a category that other people (ME!!!!!!!) can win?? Come on this is BS.

Jeez I just realized I got beat by @Optimus that is embarrassing.

I love this picture! It's fun to see the "antics of mindless people". I would vote for this if it was the criteria of the month.

It's tough to run a series like this, I would imagine there are a lot of people that can't make the beautiful pictures that we see in this contest for reasons across the board. I would love to have someone shooting me in a situation where I was doing something cool with the truck, but I generally have the camera with me and can't take the photo. Guess I need to hire a photographer. 😁

I have to admit, the @04sshd photo was awesome the way it was set up and I believe this was the draw for most to vote for it. It doesn't match the criteria exactly, but a LOT of people voted for this photo simply because it was good. (Great composition and lighting)

That said, I typically vote for the best photo that MEETS the criteria in my opinion. I don't usually vote for myself because it just doesn't seem right.
So far, I have NOT picked a winner yet. :LOL: This time around, I voted for one that came close but also, met all the criteria.

I can't blame anyone for voting the way they see as the best pick for them, it's what they liked and it's nice to see this every month. I would personally like to see a "top three" vote, given one or two days for a response, and the highest points photo wins. This would certainly get all of the votes focused on the best observed photo in the group and possibly sway the outcome.

But it's easy for us to try to pick out rules and criteria, it's a lot harder (and possibly frustrating) for the administrator to meet everyone's wants. Hats off to @modified for keeping this going. It gets a lot of conversation and participation.

Good luck to anyone entering their truck in this competition, may the dirtiest, most abused truck, win, or maybe the cleanest before and after... (Top color?)

Now I have to paint my truck and remove the tramp stamp... Thank you very much! 😒
