I like the idea of having one truck that is redone every couple of years. It's a nice way of tracking your progress as a maker. The Ride is that truck for me. The first one, on the far left, was made when I just got back into MTM2 after a few years away. I hadn't planned on doing a bunch of custom trucks, but I enjoyed the process and now that's all I make. That first Ride was all other people's parts. The second, in the back, used my frame and my tires. The third, on the right, I made everything but the body. And in front is the new one, and it's all 100% me. And that's something I thought I'd never do back when I picked this game back up. Quite a difference, eh?

I still enjoy making trucks, and the low-detail modeling constraints of MTM2's engine make it perfect for me, since I can work to my strengths in the paintwork. It took me forever to do the new body, and I hate that, but now I have another canvas to work on, and that's what I wanted from the beginning. Now on to other projects, definitely more trucks and maybe even...tracks?

Epic, Cale. Just plain epic. Arguably the best-looking, most detailed truck ever made for MTM2.

I would love to see you delve into the world of track making. It's definitely fun, and and there are tons of options you don't get to play with when you are making trucks ;)

Great job man, this truck is perfect 360 degrees around. Perfect map job, perfect bin editing, perfect lights. 10/10. Im highly impressed. Love the new ford body style too (real life/your bin).

Great work.
