    We're testing out a new theme for the Truck Forum. As you can see, it's still in beta. I suggest you check it out on all the different sections of the website, as well as on your phone/tablet. Notice if you scroll down and then back up, you get a mini-menu. There's lots of nifty little features that you'll only notice after playing with it for a while, so please give it a chance. If you really don't like this theme, there is a way to switch back to the old one until we work everything out.

    You can go back to the old theme by scrolling to the very bottom left and clicking on the box that shows "xv1" with a dropdown arrow. Then you will have the option of selecting the old theme, "fav2." So for now, we have 2 themes, xv1 and fav2, and you can freely switch between them.

    Let us know your thoughts, and thank you for using the Truck Forum!

    Now that's what in talking about. Maybe add a Chevy and a Ford to the background so folks don't think this is a Dodge Ram forum.

    You must be on mobile. Thanks for pointing that out. I might put a chevy where the doge ram is so it's more prominent on mobile. The background actually has 5 brands but only 1 shows on mobile.

    Being on mobile limits screen size and space but turn your phone sideways think thats landscape mode all 3 trucks show up on the screen.

    Seems this new theme for me on mobile loads a little slower but that could be me my phone network. But digging the new theme.

    This theme will definitely load a little slower on mobile. That's one of the things I liked about the last one -- it was optimized to be super fast without too many bells and whistles.

    Just changed the TF logo to include TF Truck Forum

    Just switched around the trucks so the chevy shows up in the center when you're on mobile.
