    Tell us a little about your truck and post a picture.

    Well since it's a mud truck you could use either:

    "Deep Sh*t"
    (or)
    "Buried Alive"
    (or)
    "Pigpen" <- Like the old Charlie Brown character.

    Don't set out to name it. Get out and use it.

    IMO, the best names aren't cool, catchy names that come out of someone's wet dream impression of their truck (dream being the key word for most of the truck names I've seen). The really good names just “happen” based on events. There was a jeep that got called the "Rocket Launcher" because of it's tendency to get stuck tipped up on the back of it's roll bar pointing at the sky (actually, I think it was more what the funky roll bar that led to this tendency was called, but you get the idea). There is also “The Great Pumpkin” which is a rather large orange and black Super Cab F350 with nothing but that big fat cab/cap setting on bare a Chassis (much like my K30). That name is cool without trying to be cool. I honestly hate seeing rigs with the “I’m so cool and my truck is bad assed” completely contrived names stuck on them, often with big fat letters across the windshield. If there is something individual/unusual about your truck (looks, ability, or maybe even *lack of ability*) then the guys you wheel with will name it quickly enough. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    If you have to ask for help on a name, then it’s not time to name it. Just my opinion but, leave the contrived names for the mall poseurs and the monster trucks…

    For the good names you don't name your truck it gets named by the people you run with.

    You can not set out to name a truck. It is not a child or a dog. It does not have to have a name. Having said that..................A truck name is like a nick name. You can not give your self a nickname. A cool nicname is bestowed upon you.
    Once again...You can not name your own truck. Just ask "PURPLE TRAIL EATER."

    I tried to name my truck, but couldn't come up with anything original. Then I was at my friend's (79Beast) house one day and his dad looked out the window, saw my truck, and said "I knew you were here because I saw the "Thing" outside." Also, there have been countless people say how ugly that "thing" is. My truck IS one of the ugliest trucks I've ever seen. So, the name "Thing" just sorta stuck. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    My trucks name is more of a phrase: "DON'T DOUBT THE BLAZER". This came from when my blazer was stock and I would tell my passengers eveytime that we came to a gnasty dune that I wasn't sure if we could make it /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif . Then from the rear seat I hear "don't doubt the blazer /forums/images/icons/cool.gif " and we made it up with speed to spare! Ever since then the phrase stuck, and whenever someone doubt's the blazer, something seems to break /forums/images/icons/mad.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif ! So give it time, your truck will eventually earn its name

    Mine is called RAT PACK 7 by default because I was the 7th person in my group to get a personalized plate (RAT-PAK 1 thru 9) I still haven't found a real name for her yet. Just wait for it it will come.

    It's your truck, do what you want. Everyone wanted to call mine "the beast" ummm......haven't heard that one before...yeah right. Sorry but I named it before I started all the work I did which gave me a insentive to make it work to the name. well kind of. It also gave me a song to jam with late into the night when I was working on it. Besides, Teds cool.
    I think the Trooper lives up to it.

    My rig just got named last weekend. Was out wheelin with a buddy. Climbed up a fairly steep and rutted hill complete with boulders and all. My buddy made the remark that my truck reminded him of a mountain goat. So my trucks name is now The Goat. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    i agree with others saying you cant pick a cool name in the hopes of being cool. the name just has to come to it. my trucks are the tar baby - because its black and ussually sticky with mud. old blue- its old and blue - and thumper- becauses its so loud. my bud has a truck called "the dave show" somone got drunk and fingered it into teh mud on teh truck one night and the name (and teh scratch where it was written) stuck.

    my buddy calls my suburban "inferiority complex" /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif . i've always called it "the sub". oh and "mormon attack vehicle" or "MAV" is a good one for a suburban. but i'm not morman.
