Simple question: What do you think is the ranged best weapon for the trukk?
I voted big shoota. Its free and to me the trukk is just a means of sending 12 orks flying across the battlefield as fast as possible. I rarely get to shoot the trukk anyway as its usually going too fast to shoot or its dead (from being shot at).
I think you really want to keep the trukk as cheap as possible because its armour 10 all round is really weak and can be hurt by most basic troops. I just spend a few points on a red paint job and thats it.

At least, when you shoot the big shoota you should statistically get one of the shots to hit every time. But really spending points for any upgrade other than paint or a ram you're wasting your points.

I thought that the only use for that big shoota was to keep the trukk moving in case someone rolls "weapon destroyed"

I have found that big shootas is the way to go. The main reason being... they give you more chances to actually hit. The single shot is not worth it, most the time it'll not work.
Don't know why you'd want a rokkit launcha on a trukk. Extra points on a weapon that won't hit anyway? If it were twin linked I'd go for it...

Rokkit Launcha's! Time and time i see my trukks ignored as my boyz stomp forward. These trukks are perfect disguises for lucky shot rokkit's into the rear of armour, or unleashing several trukks as a mobile rokkit volley. The big shoot'a can plink away your enemy with little effect, but a lucky rokkit launcha shot can swing the tide in your favour.

I'm with everybody (almost!) else. Trukks are too fragile to sink pts in them. The ram is compulsory, but beside that? Nah. My trukks take potshots and block LoS once they've disembarked the boys. Unless we play KP, in which case they go huddle behind a building!
