I nominate PPCLI-JIM's '88 Trooper II, affectionately named Christine

Jim's put a lot of effort into making this Trooper reliable for the Canadian backcountry.

Just a reminder that all nominations need to be made in this thread and not made in separate threads. Also, there is still a few more days left for nominations and for any seconds on current nominations. A nomination that does not get seconded does not get carried over to the Vote Thread once its created.

I haven't been much of a Rodeo guy but this truck has peeked my interest. A buddy in highschool had one and this reminds me of it so much.

Let's hear it for...
