Each month The Ranger Station holds a 'Street Truck Of The Month' contest in our forums. Members nominate vehicles for the first half of the month and then vote on them during the second half. Results are posted in the forum, and the winners are displayed on the website during the following month. The monthly winners are entitled to a 'Truck Of The Month' decal as well. At the end of the year, the monthly winners are entered in to a 'Truck Of The Year' drawing. Again, forum members vote for the winner.
