I have an armored infantry style 40K Ork army: Nobz/Boyz/Burnaboyz in Trukks and Battlewagons. Against an army with any sort of shooty capability, I rarely can get the troops into assault range. Their transports get blown up, and then it's a long walk whilst getting shot up.

If this army style just can't work, that's fine. I am wondering what sort of strategy, if any, would assist my transports getting the troops into assault range?

The best way to get Battlewagons across the board, that I've see used, is to attach a Big Mek with a Kustom Force Field to the squad inside.

This will make the Battlewagon(and I think every other vehicle within 6 inches of the Battlewagon) obscured. A 4+ cover save should help you get across the board a little more consistently.
