Got something to tell us? This is your spot. Tell us you like a feature, want to see more tech stories of your particular truck, or tell us we got a new truck test right or wrong. We've dedicated this one page to anything and everything you have to say. Think of it as our Facebook wall, only it goes to print instead of being forgotten in 5 seconds. Speaking of which, we'll be selecting some of the the best post on our Facebook wall and printing them here, so be sure to friend us at www.facebook.com/truckinmag. We can be reached at email@example.com.
I have always loved your tech sections, but I'm finding this latest style is kind of choppy and lacking detail. I know you can't print every step, as the magazine would be three inches thick, but it would be nice to have a few extra pictures of the smaller steps (for example, changing the door panel fabric on Project New Guy). Have you ever done or thought about doing a year-end special issue that features tech articles only? I know I would buy it, as it would be great to have all the tech articles from start to finish in one issue. Anyway, this is still a great magazine and I'm glad that I just received a two-year subscription for Christmas.

Jeff, fortunately, we do have a yearly special issue that will be right up your alley. It's called Wrenchin', and it's filled with truck tech articles from cover to cover. It hits shelves at the end of October, so keep an eye out. Thanks for your support!
I've read your magazine for years, and yet I've noticed that your coverage of the Toyota Tundras and Nissan Titans has dropped to almost zero. I mean, if one really looked closely throughout your whole magazine, one would notice that even the aftermarket parts ads for these trucks are very slim. What gives? I just hate to think that a magazine such as yours has chosen to stick to the "American-made product only in our magazine" mentality, which would be wrong considering that a Toyota Tundra is more American-made than the three "American-made" domestic trucks!

Danny, we're certainly into Tundras and Titans too, but sadly there just aren't that many feature-worthy ones out there, especially in proportion to the Chevys, Fords, and Dodges. Just check out your local shows and you'll see what we mean. If you want to turn the tide toward Toyotas and Nissans, you'll have to get out there and build one.
Just a little update on Mobster 2.0. We're almost done, just waiting on wheels from Raceline and a spot at the interior shop. Are you guys still going to run the previous version? I'd really like to see it before I leave for Afghanistan.

Chris, it's the least we can do for you. Check out an upcoming issue for your truck's feature. Thanks for your service.

That '59 Chevy Apache from the June 2012 issue is so cool! What a great way to memorialize Capt. Hays and honor his service.

James, we think so too. Thanks for reading.
