The OC TOTM submission thread May 2014!!

Remember, the rules allow you to reenter your vehicle so long as you have not won the contest this calendar year!! If you need to see the entry rules: Ohio Chapter Truck of the Month entry rules

We will take entries until Wednesday the 23rd at which time we will start a voting poll with all the submitted entries. This chapter is kinda quiet but we know there are a lot of nice rigs out there - post 'em up for submission for May!!

Kevin, I didn't realize this, but many moons ago I was at Randolph and saw your rollback. Likely did not know you here yet. I know you spoke of a GearVendor OD for the truck(you had it or thinking of it) and taking it to F100 Nats. The bed was not actually functional? The truck was Marmon Herrington 4x4.

Yes that was me, I did in fact drive it to TN to the f100 supernationals in 2001.

My Dad was diagnosed with terminal Cancer days before we left for the trip. I had the Dr keep the info from him until we returned home. I remember the Doctor saying to me "have fun on your trip and enjoy yourselves" I can honestly say it was a trip of a lifetime with my Dad.

Ye the bed was fixed mounted to the frame rails and I had a 8,000 lb winch and LONG ramps. Going down the road it looked like the real deal.

It was a slow beast but it was bullet proof! I remember being tired of driving and increasing speeds, I think maybe we were doing 60 MPH and the Tach was near 4,000 rpms! Never used a quart of oil down and back.

I sold it to a heart surgeon in Denver Co in 2002

But I need to choose one now because I just added a new mule to the stable!! So...the old one may need to go so I should probably hurry and put it in the TOTM competition before it goes away...

Mine is no show truck by any means but cool back story, my dad knew the original owner of my truck from the north east yacht club and worked on his boats with him. My dad always love the truck and kept telling the owner he would buy it one day from him. I am now here with this truck and now the proud owner of the truck my dad wanted to but many moons ago. It has spend it's whole life in Cleveland, Mentor to be exact, and it's all numbers matching and only 59000 original miles on it with all ford documentation from it's whole life because the original owner would only take it to ford for all of the work. I got some pics in my profile of it if anyone is interested in it.

OK, just to add to the mix I will throw in my 2002!!

I had an '87 prior to this one for nine years when I was in an accident. That truck was in great shape but I decided it wasn't worth putting the money back into so I sold that on eBay to a guy in Michigan who came down and trailered it home with a Chevy. I still don't know if he made it, LOL!!

That started my search and I found this 2002 in Columbus at a Toyota dealership. After a few days of banter on the phone I drove down and fell in love with it and brought her home.

That was in 2003 and she had 6464 miles when I picked her up. Since then I have done a very long, slow build-up and when I began listing all the upgrades; it is a bigger list than I thought!!

2002 F-250 XLT 4x4 5.4L, supercab, longbed. Raceline wheels with Nitto Mud Grappler M/T tires, Powerslot Cryo rotors, Stainless brake lines, Stainless Gibson headers (in reality, the only upgrade I regret b/c the underhood noise is MUCH louder), custom stainless dual 2.5" exhaust with MBRP stainless tips. Pioneer DVD, custom 10" sub box behind seat (build is on FTE), stainless brush guard, brake control box, custom overhead console (build is on FTE), CB.

Subwoofer Build Thread

Overhead Console Build Thread

Back Rack, Remote start/alarm, jimmijammers, 3-gauge a-pillar pod with Water temp, Trans temp and Oil pressure gauges.

Many of you may remember that in August of 2011 this truck was stolen from the parking lot at my work. Insurance won't pay for 21 days. I filed the paperwork after 19 days for insurance to cut me a check and the next night I got a call from Cleveland PD that they found it.

She was on blocks, tires gone, tailgate, battery, step boards, brake control box, catalytic converter was cut out, etc. The bed was damaged and so was much of the sheetmetal (there's more). But insurance would not total it. By the time all was said and done insurance saved less than $600 from repairing the truck compared to what they would have paid me out.

Due to all of that, I ended up buying a 2009 bed and a 2010 tailgate with the rear step and camera. I then found a 2005 front end so I upgraded the grille, headlights and bumper!! That was a great upgrade and nearly a wash after I sold all the 2002 parts!!

I can't find a pic on this computer of when I first got it. I used to have one as my avatar on here but if I find it later I will add it!

Here is what she looked like the day I arrived at the impound (Sept. 2011)

After 11 years of ridiculously dependable service, I am looking to let her go! We have needed a Crew Cab for a few years now...
