So what are the Final Or latest plans for  RamJam??
I didn;t get a final count of events or awards so I can either just make some and go with it or we can wait for a final count.

Whats the verdict on vendors and prizes?

At this point, My company is sending me to Mud Engineering school which will be from July8-Aug30. So there is a good chance I can make it. But my schedule to get things done before then will be tight. So the more we can get done now would be great.

The War Wagon

We NEED a "Ramjam-per-state."  TX is a L-O-N-G way to chug a 21 year old truck!  :o

Besides, we just MIGHT have a hill, rock, or mud puddle or twelve in PA to play on for a weekend...  ;)
Restoring/building a War Wagon - good advice ALWAYS welcome!

I was afraid that I would be as busy as I am now.  I will help as I can but I have a big project going at work, I have my son and family here from Peru and I have a grand-daughter riding events at a big event in Fort Worth.

I will be at Ram Jam with at least one truck and a fire pit for the drawing.  Ernest has to help with the fire pit I don't think we can keep him from coming with a ferd.

What about tallest truck and maybe smallest tires?

We did uglyiest (most ugly) truck but had a hard time deciding... (2009)

We also did shortest drive and longest drive.

Seems like they had something like "Most Technical".  They gave it to me but I haven't the slightest idea why.  I was just redneck.

I was trying to stay away from generic awards which involved running around with a tape measure measure tires and wheels. I didn;t see the point of giving a award to this guys because he has 44's with 12 inchs of lift while the truck next to him had 11 inchs of lift and 43's. Or having to firgure which of two stock RC's have smaller bald tires and more dodge lean.

The awards are setup more about driver input and personality rather then who has the biggest truck. This gives a chance for a guy with  stock RC to when awards.

With all this rain lately, might have some kind of mud award like the deepest mud puddle or muddiest truck called the mud-pie, dirty dog, or pig-pen award.
