Default A question about "rules" for a RWD Ranger

OK guys and gals....please forgive me for asking this, but......

Is it against the "Laws and Ordinances of the Brotherhood of Truck Owners" to put an emblem, sticker, or other type of accessory on your rear wheel drive Ranger that conveys to the general public that your Ranger is in fact a 4 x 4???

In short....can I put a 4 x 4 sticker or emblem on my RWD truck without someone busting my balls over it???

why would you put a 4x4 sticker on a 2wd? just throw on a 4x2 sticker

B/c I just think it would look cool. Plus it might make my penis about 1/2 inch bigger. LOL

Seriously, I just think it would be cool for people to think my Ranger is a 4 x 4.

Haha! Yea..I mean...its kind of "cheating" people who paid more $$ for a 4 x 4. But Ive heard lots of people that customize their XLT to look like a Fx4.

The previous owner of my '00 put one of those chrome 4x4 emblems from Autozone on the truck. I never took it off because it didn't really bother me. I did have alot of people asking me if the truck was 4x4.

Haha! Nice point.

I just thought it would look cool on my truck. Just wondering.

I hope STL doesn't see this thread.

Default Re: A question about "rules" for a RWD Ranger

why would you put a 4x4 sticker on your truck? to most people, it LOOKS like a 4x4.
In fact, a lot of people actually remove their 4x4 stickers, for a "clean" look.
also, having a 4x4 sticker on a 4x2 might make for some embarrassing moments out in the public:

(some guy) "Hey, nice 4x4! can i check 'er out?" You: "'er, ok" Guy: "hey, wheres the 4x4 control?" You: "er, it doesn't have one" Guy: "I thought this truck was a 4x4?" You: "er, It isn't" Guy: "Then why does it say "4x4" on it?" You: "er, because i thought It would be cool" Guy: "so your PRETENDING to have a 4x4....most people stop playing "Pretend" when they are about 7 years old"
