OffroadTB.com will be putting out a 2017 calendar, and we need your pictures to fill it.

Each person that wishes to enter can submit up to 2 photos of your vehicle and post them in this thread. You can just post up a high res version now and let the site resize it for you - this is preferred but not required. If you post your own re-sized photo here, and not a full-resolution, please email the full resolution picture to admin(at)offroadtb.com. If someone else has an image of your truck, contact them, get permission to post it, and post it yourself!

Picture guidelines:
-Picture is taken off-road (your truck on pavement will immediately be rejected)
-A GMT360/370 needs to be in the photo
-In focus (no blurry shots!)
-Good photo composition (pretty backgrounds are very desirable!)
-No people in the photo (unless they are inside and obscured from view, or otherwise contribute to the aesthetics of the shot)
-No DATE or TIME Stamps
-Please try not to cut off any part of your vehicle, unless it has some sort of artistic merit
-High resolution MUST BE available (2000px or more wide)
-Pictures do not have to be from 2015, but please do not submit a shot that has been included in a prior calendar

Ideal EXAMPLE from back in 2012:


I will then pick the best photos by weighing the following:
-photo quality
-artistic merit of the photo
-'off roadiness' of the setting
-quality/beauty of the background
-vehicle modifications (the more the better) - but don't let that discourage you from submitting - we have had stock TBs many times in the past calendars

Don't wait to submit pictures; submit them immediately!! You can always come back and update your submission with two new ones... but please only have two photos posted here at a time to be fair to others.

Please note that by posting your photo, you are giving us full rights to use your photo in any way we see fit... and please don't hold it against us if we don't choose your photos. I can be rather picky.

I'm looking forward to seeing your submissions this year! This is always one of my favorite threads! Lets see what you've got!

Clean or dirty? :) If you pick one of mine, let me know if you need me to submit these directly to the site or if you can download them from imgur.

I would think with your current enlistment you would have the respect not to drag the flag on the ground....

Ayyyy. Let me clear it up. The flag NEVER touched the ground. It was close but not fully touching. I get it, but that's kinda the thing with only being able to see one angle. Roast me all you want but I'd die for that flag and never let it hit the ground.

If y'all wanna disqualify that pic that's chill, I got a whole camera roll full of pics. I didn't post with the intent of rubbing people the wrong way. If I did, I apologize.
Lemme know, yo.
