To get your truck featured in Readers' Rides, email a high-resolution photo of your truck to John.Mata@sorc.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.
There is no better feeling than to stand back and admire the hard work that goes into building up a truck with your own hands. Tim Lombardi, a Manahawkin, New Jersey, native, has been working on his '02 Nissan Frontier for quite some time now, and a few fruits of his labor include an all-around 3-inch drop, a Gibson exhaust system, and a two-tone paint job that features Toyota black and factory Nissan gold colors, which are divided by orange pinstriping. Tim also slapped on a set of 17-inch American Racing Trench wheels that were wrapped in General tires. Future plans include a full air ride suspension and suicide doors.
Saul Tercero, from El Paso, Texas, has given his '05 Chevy Tahoe quite a paint job. The three-tone scheme is comprised of a top layer of cinnamon red and a bottom half that has been sprayed with a burnt orange hue that was then covered with endless layers of tangerine candy. Shortly after the paint was dry, Saul nicknamed his ride 'Sweet Tooth' due to all the glistening coats of candy that were caked onto his truck. A set of 24-inch chrome wheels and Pirelli tires have been mated and bolted onto the sugary sweet Tahoe's hubs. Future plans include an'08-'09 front end conversion and some additional horsepower goodies under the hood.
Eighteen-year-old Daniel Quinn is the proud owner of this rough and rugged '04 Ford F-150. So far, Daniel has seen his ride evolve into a bigger and better hauler but he is not even close to achieving everything he wants out of his truck. Eventually, he would like to transform his truck into a fully built pre-runner, which he will most certainly have a blast with. Keep up the great work Daniel!
