Default How wrong is it...

How wrong is it to take a picture of someone else's truck you see while out and about because they have some mods you can get some ideas from? Is that considered "un-kosher"? I don't want to be standing there taking a picture of some guys truck and have him pissed because I'm doing it.

There was a very cool ranger decked out with shit loads of very cool stuff and it had the kind of roll bar with off road lights I'd like to get. I was SO tempted to take a picture, but wasn't sure if that would be cool or not. Now I can't remember exactly what it looks like so I can go find one kind of like it!

Besides the dude's truck was amazing looking!

Nope, not wrong at all.

Just the other day I was at Publix, and I saw a nice 04-05 White Supercab Edge. Liked the way the truck sat, so I had the gf take a pic of it for me with her phone. If you're really nervous about it, just take a pic within the confines of your truck.

If they did not want to be seen then they should hide.

If anything, the owner will be proud that someone notices the work he/she put in.


If you get caught taking pics and you tell the owner you're not scouting for parts, there should be nothing to worry about

People usually want attention. They will deny it but most of the time they do. It's like a woman. She wants attention yet she won't say it.

Thanks guys. Didn't want someone thinking I was stalking them because they think I'm taking pics of their license plate or anything! Now, I wish I would have taken that pic!

Default Re: How wrong is it...

if i had a truck that i had all the mods done to it that i wanted and some one wanted to take a pic of it and i came out and seen them it would be like a great compliment that some one really liked my truck enough to take a pic and they try to get some mod ideas from it. i mean if it werent for some of the ppl here i wouldnt know what all mods i could do to my truck to make it my own. yeah eventually i may figure out a mod that they wouldnt have and you can bet your bottom dollar i would share it with them.
