    Garages are a feature that allow you to show off your trucks and all the modifications you've made to them in one place. You can update your garage as you go and add more than one vehicle if you like.

    To get to Your Garage use the Garage drop down on the blue navigation bar.

    The step by step process for adding your data is pretty simple. Once you add your truck you can look at other members vehicles by browsing the Garage Section. As users add their garages they will show up in the forum and you can comment and ask questions if you like.

    You can quickly see if a user has a garage by either looking at their profile page and clicking the Garage tab.

    Or clicking on the Garage link under their avatar in the forum. This will only appear if they have a garage live.

    Let me know if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to seing everyone's garages!

    One problem is that Tapatalk doesn't work with the garages. Just an FYI. Otherwise it's a great feature.

    Just wonder are you going to add a sub option or something like it?

    Sorry, didn't quite follow.

    We can customize the garage sections if that's what you are talking about.

    i think he means subscribing to the garage, so if they update their truck and add it to the garage you get notified.

    You can use the "Thread Tools" drop down at the top of the garage to subscribe. Not sure if it tracks changes though. Hmmmm

    Awesome! love the idea, would be nice for more picture slots and maybe a few categories? Front suspension and rear suspension or exterior mods will definitely take up more than 3 pictures on a lot of peoples rigs. Love the idea tho. look forward to some tweaks to it.

    how about a structural category? I.E. cage work, gussets, boxing and reinforcing?

    also what about a drop down menu on the garage icon under the persons name to show a brief description of their main vehicle or all 3? like mine would read 07 TRD OR.

    I'm looking into if I can change this or not. Right now you get 1 Cover image, 3 General Images, and 3 shots for each section. I can modify the section names but I can't add any more.

    I'll let you know if that changes but we may have to stick to it or just edit the titles of what is already there.

    I'm confused, I just set mine up but can only get 3 pics to upload. My cover image along with 2 others, one in each of 2 sections. Am I supposed to be able for more?

    Also just went back to look at my garage and see that it says I have 6 views and 1 comment on my photo in the wheels and tires section. How to I see the comment?

    I LOVE this feature about this site. Of all the vehicle forums I've been a part of (about 8 now) and I've never seen a dedicated "garage" section that's laid out as well as this. Kudos Nathan!

    You can add more in the comments below if you like. It's reserved for the best of the best I guess. That's why Garages are different than build threads. Garages are one place for details on your truck and some great images. Builds are where you document the process and every angle.
    You have one comment below but it's your own... you said "Reserved".

    I like this idea. Seems neat that we can have more than one vehicle :thumbup:

    I set up a 2nd vehicle in my garage but it says it's not visible to others and to upload a pic to make it visible. I won't let me upload one. So my question is am I only allowed 3 pics for the whole garage or per vehicle? I have 3 in my Tacoma one already.
