Getting your truck into Readers' Rides is a snap - of the camera, that is. All it takes is a couple of good-quality photos of your ride that are in focus and well lit. Due to the volume of mail we receive, we regret that we cannot return photographs. Please shoot and send photos of your truck only (no people, pets, Polaroids, or printouts) to: Truckin' Magazine, Readers' Rides, 2100 E. Howell Ave., Ste. 209, Anaheim, CA 92806. It is important that you include a detailed description of the modifications you have made to your truck, including any interesting stories behind it. This can include information about the buildup or any special history the truck has.

It rolls on Mickey Thompson Baja Claw radials and American Racing Baja wheels. The interior has a 7-1/2-inch screen, and a PlayStation 2 for entertainment. Daniel is also the proud winner of the Colonial Beach Nationals in Virginia.
Sit 'n' LowThis '02 Chevy S-10 is a work in progress. Owner Troy Lang has made several upgrades since he bought it. The resident of Omaha, Nebraska, started by lowering the truck 3 inches using Belltech drop springs and spindles in the front, while Belltech lowering blocks were used in the rear. The interior has a 5.6-inch screen and white-face gauges. To complete his S-10, Angelo plans on shaving the tailgate handle and adding a carbon-fiber dash kit and a supercharger.
Supa FlyIs it a bird? A plane? A Lamborghini? No, it's Richard Dennis' '01 Ford Expedition. The people of Gardena, California, have to look twice to make sure that what's before their eyes is really an Expedition. Not only does this truck have Lamborghini doors, but Richard modified the paintjob with purple flames to add a certain wow factor. Inside, there are nine screens, a Sony PlayStation 2, and front and rear cameras.
