I wasn't talking about animated images... leave the header the way it is, but with small images like avatars.. that state TOTM & TOTY
there is plenty of room on the right side of the header... images hyper linked to that person's photo album (if they have one)

Tee problem with doing that though is that every truck is different. i.e. lifts tires lights blablabla. So in order for it to actually be accurate to each truck you've got to edit all those things and it would probably just be easier to start fresh. And keep in mind that most of the trucks that win are pretty modified.

P.s. I made the image up on the header.

I'm on my phone so I must have skipped a few post on accident. I like that thing you posted stl with the picture in the corner. I would just add some sort of border so it looks more defined and not just stuck there.

You did a fine job.

I understand that, I had no problem editing my bumper and grille to match, also fixed the regular cab and my mirrors.

The hardest part I see is doing a lift and lowering, but honestly, since it's already so cartoony and linearty, it shouldnt be that difficult.

Given it would be hard to make it SPOT ON, however if youre making it simple Id just add to the wheel gap for a lift, and subtract for a drop.

I think that it is agreat idea. But the you have to make it so it can accomadate say 300 trucks....!? eventually if the site stays going strong, there will be years of trucks to display. I think the best way to do this is to have an animated pictures scroll, that will always show say 6 thumbnail sized pictures, but they will scroll, either automatically or can have an arrow on each side so when you hover above the arrow the scroll will move. Then have the pics linked for the specific truck. Of course there will be more than 6 in the scroll, Just the size of the scoll will display 6 at a time, this is just a size concern could be more.

I like what STL did. Just have a flash player scroll through pics of the trucks with their award graphics in them.

I like the idea of TOTM and TOTY pics in the header. simple image thumbnails to the right of the logo are probably the best way to go; handle them like the random galleries that are already in use.

Just set the links to open a previous TOTM or TOTY gallery instead of the users gallery.
