To get your truck featured in Readers' Rides, e-mail a high-resolution photo of your truck to John.Mata@sourceinterlink.com. Send in a front 3/4 or profile shot, and make sure it's big enough. We print at a much higher resolution than a website, which means sending links to photos posted online won't necessarily work. Images should be about three megabytes. Also, include plenty of information about yourself, your truck, and your full name. If you want to get your ride noticed by posting it on Truckin' Readers' Rides Online, go to rides.truckinweb.com. Upload as many as 20 photos of your vehicle, along with a detailed description.
Aaron Dean's '07 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ has been lifted with a 7-inch Fabtech lift kit as well as a Performance Accessories 3-inch body lift. The Chevy now clears 37-inch Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires with ease. Aaron installed a K&N air intake, a Flowmaster 40-series exhaust system, and a Pro Comp power programmer to make his truck act tough enough to match its intimidating exterior. Future modifications include new gears, a fully-painted interior, and powdercoated suspension components to match the bright red paint.
Brandon Serio's '97 Chevy S-10 has been given a Blazer frontend upgrade, as well as a Belltech drop and 18-inch wheels. A Flowmaster 40-series after-cat exhaust system and an Airaid cool air intake provide an extra helping of horsepower and fuel economy while a Pioneer head unit, two 10-inch Kicker subs, and 1,100-watt Rockford Fosgate amp keep the sounds thumping.
Chris Kilmury, from Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, previously owned a Dodge Dakota but he scrapped it and began his search for the rare R/T version, which he finally found in the States. Once Chris' new Dakota was parked in his garage, he installed a Stillen front bumper cover, Carriage Works black billet grille, and a new K&N intake for better performance. Chris absolutely loves his truck but he works it to death during the summer although he lets it recuperate all winter long.
Michael Westby, from The Dalles, Oregon, loves to cruise his '93 GMC 1-ton dualie. He has grafted an '04 Escalade front clip to the front end and then dumped a 502ci crate engine with all the trimmings under the hood. An Edelbrock Air Gap intake, Hooker headers, MSD ignition, a 150-shot nitrous system, and a 480LE tranny complete with a Compushift controller and a 4.10 Detroit locker rearend all work together to help Michael get his tire roasting fix with little effort. At the moment, the GMC puts out 431hp to the rear tires and an impressive 598 lb-ft of torque once the nitrous is activated.
