    Some posts on another thread led me to start this one.

    If you have a name for your truck, what is it and why?

    My truck is Red October. I named it this after my wheelin buddy told me I confused my truck with a submarine. I drove it down a man-made creek that at points was over the hood ever so slightly (halfway to the windshield washer nozzles). I never got stuck or even missed a beat. No problems at all until the mud that was mixed with the water clogged all the fins in the radiator. After a few hours with the hose, all was well again.

    I've toyed with calling mine BuRT because my 2 year old son is so excited when he says "Big Red Truck" Used to be he was just happy whenever we went "bye-bye", but now he makes a distinction between "bye-bye in Daddy's truck" or "bye-bye in Mommy's car".

    Haha! That's funny. My 4 year old son prefers my truck to all other means of transportation.

    I've named my truck Venom. I think the front of the truck looks like Venom from Spiderman, cause of the big white headlights, and the rest of the truck is black. All I need now are some huge white fangs in the grille.

    As much as I would love a snorkel, they're kinda pricey. Not to mention the great big WTF! I would get from my wife. Anyhow, it never took in water that time and a snorkel won't keep mud off my radiator.
