Id love to know who in the H3ll you are talking to at these companies to get you the Sponsorships? Id love to see what kind of sly wording you spit to them lmao bc I want in hahahah!
All of my original sponsorships were because I had my truck in a booth at SEMA last year. The new/continued sponsorships were because of my active presence here on the forum and on social media... as well as the photography that I provide for the companies to use (not your regular cellphone pics lol). Also, the Colorado/Canyon market is still young and new..... not many people are willing/able to do these over-the-top builds that require some heavy modifications. Most people just stick with your out-of-the-box wheel/tire fitments coupled with a leveling kit and call it a day. There's nothing wrong with that, but that's not what companies want to use to showcase their products.
People think that having a partnership with a company is just about throwing on some decals and getting free stuff. It's not like that... at all. Especially if you want to keep those partnerships. I've seen many of companies pull their sponsorships because the individuals weren't actively representing the brand in a positive light, or providing the proper feedback to the company or to potential customers. You're basically an employee of the company and need to promote it as such!
On a different note: got the wheels and tires mounted up and installed! Needless to say.... I'm now having to "make them fit"
Still got a good bit of work to do to complete this "makeover".... but this was definitely the biggest hurdle, considering I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to run this big of a wheel/tire setup. But, I don't mind a challenge and the outcome was definitely worth it! Better pics to come once Hurricane Matthew decides to stop beating up ol' SC!
Proper way to trim fenders... pull them off the truck!
Still got some work to do on making these fender flares work...
