  • Lil Truck trail badges!?

    Posted by simplylesa on August 18, 2023 at 12:46 pm

    I want some LilTruck badges for trails kinda like Jeepers can have. I found one newer overland company making some for National Parks but I don’t like them much.

    I understand the thought behind the Sasquatch badge..but I’d rather have a brass look LilTruck badge without a Sasquatch to delineate my membership! and then Trail Badges bc I have already done a couple sections of the Baja Divide Trail and that’s an accomplishment 😁 in my Tracker.

    I have some location patches on my headliner but I am so finding that too busy n distracting for my minimalist style…I’ll ‘cross post’ some of these thoughts for discussion in one of the forums!

    I’m using the most basic of event stickers on my driver’s side rear window (I understand soft top people don’t have this option)

    I kinda like the way I figured out to add the years I attended. Wonder 🤔 if this kind of idea could be incorporated into the “badge” discussion

    I could make dates available as add-ons. How did you get dates?

    Your RTR ran out of space for more dates though.

    Okay LilTruck badges for trails could work. Can you upload photos of ones you like, maybe those on your headliner, along with ones you don’t like of the natl parks?

    Anyone else?

    Would they be rectangular like attached? I’m not in love with the lines of the trail on there. Those lines aren’t very visible or understandable.

    I like the simple idea of a header “Li’l Truck Trail Boss”, “Li’l Truck Boss of Trails” or “Li’l Truck Trail Badges” or something designation. Then simple trail name or place name perhaps with difficulty level# badges that can be added like a list below the header badge – whadya think of that idea. I think it will help with the space issues.

    I currently am only placing stickers on my inside tailgate area. And some place and country stickers on my driver’s side rear window of my removable top.

    I figure with RTR I’ll just make a second row or add rows below….

    I got mini number stickers! 😳 It’s a little bit of work getting them straight.

    I’d love if my OE was an oval…it’s not, and if the years could be (inexpensive add ones!) A year with location that’d be awesome! As you know this year I didn’t make all the Expos but I ‘qualify’ for my year bc I made one location!

    Does that help?

    It’d be nice if the event location could be the other direction of the year… let’s see if I can make a mock up using keep notes on my phone…

    That didn’t work out well, it’s so small… perhaps if in the case of OE they made location stickers and I could add the years to each….my number stickers are 1/2 inch. If a trail badges was a 1/2 in line for below the LilTruck member sticker…I could move the sticker to leave room below it for trail or LilTruck event badges and year before/after or no year? A simple abbreviation style example: (portions of trails I have actually done with my tracker)

    I don’t think years of trail badges matters, do you?
