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.
Mike Lyles and his 16-year-old son have built their '02 Dodge Ram at home in their garage and has been a great learning and bonding experience. Together, father and son dropped the Ram 2/4 with McGaughy's drop spindles and a rear flip kit and have thrown on a set of 20-inch color-matched wheels to fill in the fender gap. The OEM silver paint was sanded off and Firemist Red Pearl was sprayed on in its place. Since dad had first dibs on driving the completed Ram project around, they are now building a full custom '93 S-10 for Jr.
Ray Lichtenberg, or SuperSub as he is known on Performancetrucks.net, has treated his '03 Chevy Suburban to a street treatment that will certainly raise envy amongst onlookers. For starters, Ray installed a GM Performance Parts LSX block and fitted it with go-fast goodies, which delivers 590 rear wheel hp for an ample amount of rubber roasting. Baer extreme six-piston brake calipers, cross-drilled rotors, and 22-inch SS styled wheels have taken up residence at each corner. With the looks and performance of a true Super Sport, Ray's Suburban still serves its factory given purpose of transporting the entire family unit across the country.
Bill from Performancetrucks.net serves as a forum administrator on the site, and he currently has 22,512 posts under his belt at the time of this writing. Bill is probably easier to recognize under his PT.net handle, trever1t, but his '05 GMC Sierra Z71 will no doubt blow his cover. So far, Bill has planted a Magnuson TVS supercharger under the hood and the speedy Sierra is now nitrous and methanol injected. A Finish Line transmission has found its way onto Bill's GMC and helps project the road rocket down the track at breakneck speeds (firstname.lastname@example.org is currently its best time but that will certainly shrink in the future).
Devern Matson, from Anoka, Minnesota, loves to drive his '01 Ford Lightning fast if you couldn't tell from the photo he sent in. His quickest 1/4 mile time is 12.5 and he was able to lock down such a quick time with the help of a Superchips programmer, a JDM cool air induction kit, a single blade throttle body, a four-pound lower blower pulley kit, and a Magnaflow exhaust system.
